Question on Exhaust Upgrade and Break-in Period

First off hello! I used to be a lurker here about 4 years ago when I had my 335i. I since traded it for and '07 911 Turbo. Now that the family situation has changed and the need something better to suit having a child, I am trading in the P-car and ordered a 2013 M3 for a more family-friendly weekend warrior. Still kind of on the fence on whether I'll fully follow through, so any personal experiences on this type of change is appreciated.

All that said...the minute I get my car it's gotta go in for an exhaust upgrade. I've seen both akrapovic and eisenmann race models on youtube that seem pretty good, but in everyone's opinion, whats the loudest exhaust with the deepest growl possible....budget no issue.

Also, could I put a new exhaust on right away, or must I wait for the break-in period to be over?

Thanks!

The loudest would probably Gintani or Meisterchaft. Eisenmann race is up there too. Are you sure you want to have a loud race exhaust with a child in the car? And try to hear exhausts in real ife. Youtube videos don't do them justice.

A valved system would be best...thats what I have on the TT. I can put it in a race or cruise mode. Havent heard of one for the M3 though. I'm fine having a child with it...hell, still need some fun myself. Its not like I'd contemplate straight pipes though.

Innotech makes a valved exhaust for the M3. I think there is one made by evolve too. Haven't personally heard them though. And good for you for being able to have fun with a wife and kid, my fun stopped when I got a wife....Can't imagine what it would be like with a kid..

The m3 is well insulted, Porsche is good too. Even a gintani race with the windows up will be good. Best thing would be to go to the local meets and sit in other people's cars.

I had an exhaust waiting for me before the car ever arrived. You definitely don't have to wait to install it.

No problem installing the exhaust system straight away. No reason to wait.

I've tuned many cars with under 100 miles on them, no reason to wait there either!
