M3 E92 Exhaust: Corsa vs. M Performance

Hi everyone - i'm looking to either get the Corsa or the M Performance Exhaust. Are these systems about the same in terms of loudness and sound? I'll be going to hear the M Perf at local BMW dealer tomorrow, but have never heard the Corsa in peson.

IMHO, Corsa is much louder with a throatier sound.

Corsa is definitely louder.

Both sound really good, but are two of the uglier cans around!

That said, I'm leaning towards getting the Corsa myself.

I haven't heard either live but the Corsa sounds deeper on many videos. Stuff the cash in your pocket, paint the cans and call it a day.

Just about zero. Both exhausts are very quiet. Corsa is louder, but high pitched, so almost no additional bass, except on cold start.
