M Performance Exhaust + Challenge STREET

Has anyone tried this combination?

Do you think it will be too raspy as with the M Performance and Challenge Sport or other xpipe setup?

EAS or IND, your thoughts?

I think kiwi can answer your question.
But from what I read, BMW Performance exhaust sounds pretty bad with any aftermarket mid pipes.

We haven't tried that combo with the X-Pipe, but the BMW Performance Exhaust itself sounds pretty good alone:

I havent yet heard any with out Street X pipe. It does keep the primary cats, so id say you have a much better chance of not seeing as much rasp. The M perf. exhaust is a nice unit though

David, this may be a mod I might test out in the near future at your shop. I understand the Street will require cutting my stock pipes. If we do this and it sounds quite terrible, would you be able to sell me an OEM E90 midpipe? I would rather not do any welding.

Thanks,
Scott
