The rasp is absolutely no problem for me. I actually didn't mind the rasp on the E46...

Thanks Again,

My friend Jerome (before he sold his M3) had an 08 E92 with the secondary cats pulled out, and I was not a fan of the sound at all. Much less refined and way too raspy. Make sure you listen to a car with this setup first before you do it to yours. Maybe in conjunction with a rear section mod it would sounds better.

Dinan intake does not void your warranty.

Not true, even Dinan can technically "void" warranty, they are not exempt.

However, most dealers do not care.

Very interesting suggestion. I suppose if I went to a Dinan-certified dealer and got an intake installed then that dealer would probably have to honor the warranty if their work led to a problem. I will definitely research this angle - thanks!

Mike,

I hope you're doing well! Thanks very much for the feedback - I appreciate it. I definitely won't do anything to the exhaust without listening to it first. I'm still leaning towards the OEM Exhaust Mod (non-perforated) based on my research. Thanks again.

Jeremy
