changing just the muffler

Hi guys,

I'm new to this forum. just bought my e92 at the end of the lease and am looking to add some mods. Specifically adding a dinan muffler. Seems like most people change the entire exhaust system rather than just the muffler. can i expect an improvement in sound by changing just the muffler?

I don't want to change everything because the car is still under warranty and i am considering getting the extended warranty as well.

Yes you will change your sound with just swapping out the muffler. People change the who system to gain some extra horsepower.
