Very happy with OEM Exh mod

So, I mentioned in a few other posts that the wife bought me a new SVT Raptor truck. A condition of buying the truck, she would use the M3 as her DD. Along with that conditon, I had to change out the Magnaflow exh... Of course I accepted but with a hidden agenda. I didnt want to completely lose the sound so I bought an OEM exhaust and did the exhaust mod (Non ACM- Perf pipes only). After a few hours and $280 later, I started it and had a little smile when I rev'ed the engine.... It sounds awesome.... I'm very happy with it and kind of wish I never got the Magnaflow... No drone, quiet when cruising but when you floor it, it sounds awesome!!! So thanks to those who first thought of it and to those I sent PM's too with a million questions about it!! I also had the tips painted black.... If people really want a sound clip, I'll be happy to take one cause I still have a video of the Magnaflow on the car... Just no video comparing to OEM.

With that in mind, anyone want to buy a used Magnaflow exh??? LOL....

You gave up your M3 to your wife to use as a DD? That one is gonna cost you a lot of money in the long run...brakes, clutch, door dings from the market etc...

Before taking it to the muffler shop, I sanded down the chrome tips, painted them with high cermaic temp paint then used a blow dryer to dry them at some what high heat....

Still have maint/warr so I'm not worried about those issues except the door dings and failure to take care of the car like I do!!
