Road Sound Presence: M3 with Eisenmann Race Exhaust VS C63 AMG

I really like the sound of C63 AMG, and I was wondering if M3's sound can be as good as C63's with Eisenmann Race Exhaust. Does anyone know? And what you guys think is the best exhaust for M3?

I have a Eisenmann race myself and I love it (even though I only hear it from in cabin). I remember attending a track event a couple weeks ago and hearing another M3 w/ Eisenmann Race and it sounded insane (He told me that he bought his Eisenmann because he liked how mine sounded in a previous track day).

I haven't heard a C63 in person and I will hopefully this weekend. But what I expect is that the C63 will sound really nice and the Eisenmann Race to sound even louder and meaner.

I have both AMG & M3. M3 has Race eisenmann & the AMG has had sports muffler change with quad tips.

The M3 now sound as good as my AMG ( but has slightly difference sound), the only other thing that is different is that the M3 revs to over 8,000 so up the high end now it sounds a little like a Ferrari. Which I like but the race exhaust is what it says it is RACE and that was the sound I was looking for.

At 95db its not loud in the cab, 4 people can still talk with the radio on but if you put your foot down the talking stops anyway.

You make a change to your exhaust for a reason, the standard exhaust to sports in my opinion is not worth it, 75db is standard & 95db is Race and the Sports system is 75db also.

I've heard the C63 in person. All I have to say is WOWOWOW. One of the best sounding engines ever. M3 isn't half bad either.
