after market x pipe with M Performance Exhaust

As the title says, Im running on M Performance Exhaust, and wondering if anyone has changed the x pipe for a more aggressive sound. Tried the RPI GTM and the droning almost killed me. Still, the M Performance is not as loud as I will have wished for in an M3. Just wondering how the combo of it plus an aftermarket x pipe will sound.

There was this post a few days ago. I think the response was no you cannot pair it with any x pipe without a lot of drone.

Yes with Performance exhaust and deleting one of the CAT will cause headache... everyone had the performance that went for an xpipe delete cat primary or secondary causes mad headache = DRONE...

oh also no xpipe will cure this with this exhaust....

Need someone to step up if they have paired with either Turner Test Pipes or Dinan X-Pipe.

You will need a quad resonated xpipe.

Anyone try an x-pipe with 4 resonators on it or 2 cats and 2 resonators?

I am trying to get some miles on my m3 for its break-in service. I drove about 250KM today and my M-Performance exhaust DRONES like a MOTHER F*CKER at 3,800-4,000 RPM's. Car came with M Performance (dealer installed) and it has 1,200KM on it right now. Is this normal? Loose bolts? Anyone else have this problem?
It is not normal to hear any drone from the M Performance. Since your dealer installed it, have them check your fittings, something is definitely awry if you hear drone.

that sounds worse than a gintani race.

It's hard to tell from your video given the audio quality. Wouldn't hurt to check to make sure that all four connections are properly sealed.
