Best bet - PM kitw, our resident exhaust expert, with your specific criteria. He'll give you his top 3 choices. He's had a Corsa, along with his other 20-odd M3 exhaust combinations on his E90, E93, and current E92.

I actually PM'ed Kit previously about the AE, and he said stay away from it due to excessive drone.

Awesome feedback, that's what I needed to hear. I'll probably avoid it . I want quiet.. but not stock quiet.

Seems a little loud. Anyone else have this installed? It has great sound though.
got OEM mod installed too and love it. no drone. maybe on 6th gear if you try and look for it around 2k range. windows closed you really can't even tell when doing normal driving. I wanted a m perf. exhaust but price wise was just out of range, rather spend that on other things...

I'll be doing this with my stock exhaust once it's off.

Yeah I'll probably just powdercoat the tips. OEM is pretty ugly too so it's not exactly a step down.

i have the OEM exhaust with TTP and its a rasp machine. cant imagine fully catless and oem muffler will sound good...IMO

I am 99 percent sure I am about to order the milltek and pair with the TTP and see what happens.

the milltek seems very quiet, and i loved the sound and look on the audi s4 and also the e46. hope it sounds good with the TTP

and the tips seem very tucked in on the e92, so hopefully it will fit ok on the e90. if not, i can have a shop slightly shorten the tips if needed.

I would pick used Eisenmann Race but they are a little bit out of your price range. It was the best sounding exhaust I've ever own. I would not have switched to Akra Evo if it wasn't because I got tired of droning (I had the exhaust for almost 3 years) Next up will be Remus Race, sound level is close to Eisenmann Race but it has a higher pitch, really nice when you upshift and downshift the car. My friend is selling his Remus at a good price, check it out

Way too much drone. Too loud for my tastes. Thanks though. Already have a Corsa on order.

No offense to you or your friend but the Remus exhausts are junk. The fitment is terrible and I hate the way they sound. The fitment is objective, but obviously the sound is subjective. I dislike the Eisenmann race too, but liked my Eisenmann Sport a lot.

Sound wise, feel free to disagree, but fitment-wise, hope you have a lift, stands and a decent measure of time to make it fit right. Remember that fitment changes when the exhaust heats up too.

Junk? Really? I would say its far from "junk" and it falls within OP price range. As far a fit and installation your obviously talking out your ass. I don't know jack about tools and have never even messed with modding a car but I installed this system aided only by a DIY guide from this forum and some basic tools in an hour. The Remus Race system sounds incredible and I'm quite happy with it.

I have Corsa and could'nt ask for more ,the sound is just amazing with no drone and for people who say it's ugly , they're probably just jealous because it sound better then anything else , it's not as beautiful as the performance exhaust but at least the tips are not too big and cheesy like a lot of exhausts out there and the cans look badass to me ,at the end ,for the price , it's a f***en deal !!

here's a review by an expert
