-E92 M3 Magnaflow catback feedback-

What's up guys I'm a little new to the M3 scene and was seeking feedbacks on the Magnaflow system... I know they're a great company being that I've had their systems in my truck and even my old school Honda's(back in the day), but for those of you who have their products how do you like the sound? I'm looking for something loud and affordable, trying to be budget minded with an M3 is an understatement. Was looking at the RPI full race system and I've heard it in person and wow was I impressed but to spend $2,700 is a little uneasy for me, so any feedback is appreciated.

all depends on the money you spend... megnaflow has alot of drone from what i know n if you search around in the forum u will see reviews of it. i wouldn't recommend putting a cheap exhaust on an m3. best bang for you buck would be the exhaust mod for your stock exhaust try ACM exhaust mod

Well I wouldn't say the Magnaflow is a cheap system, retail is still a cool $1,800.00, but I'll look into the ACM mod, thank you.

sounds like an oxymoron; Don't buy a cheap exhaust; just cut yours apart!

Garage List
MEGAN exhaust. 600 bucks, case closed. Less drone than the magnaflow and just as muscle car sounding.

I have just the magnaflow mufflers in the rear, and while there is some drone, I have an appointment in 2 weeks to put on some new stuff to eliminate it, as well as making helmholtz chambers to reduce/eliminate drone

That is however yet another good point... I'll have to listen to some sound clips on Youtube for the ACM modded mufflers.

I have the mag and it sounds great. You can drive around the drone. Just keep it above 2-3k rpm
