Try Unique Custom Exhaust in Burlington. They did my exhaust and know what they are doing. Very reasonable prices.

You can also make the trek up to Turner Motorsports in Amesbury. They are off of 95 about 45 minutes north of Boston.

I had Turner do some work on my M Coupe; they are pros. Their guys build and maintain their race cars, so the same guys working on your car are used to doing it 'for real'. In terms of prices, all I remember was that it was cheaper than the dealer. But how much, I dunno. They also did all the work on my friend's race car, which wasn't cheap, but the work is definitely top notch.

$95/hour. You'll find that labor rates at quality shops won't deviate from that much.

There is also Auto Engineering in Lexington. Ask for Chip. He knows BMWs well. They are a Dinan dealer, too.

I've used Bavarian Performance Group in Winchester, MA. They specialize in BMWs and M series in particular. They did quite a bit of work on my E46 and I intend to use them with my new E92.

Bavarian Performance Group gets my vote for all the mechanical / electrical work. Also, they make arguably one of the best LSDs in the market.

That's what I worried about the Eise is day-to-day driving. The drone would be so obnoxious that my wife would choke me to death alive

to me, theres a drone but its like a good drone to me. i guess its not really every cup of tea but everyone that has heard it so far likes it a lot. it gives the m3 more personality in my eyes. but then again the car stock is amazing already. well you guys can listen it for yourselves if you want. if you are interested in getting an exhaust! feel free! i dont know anyone with an m3 in boston and it'll be nice to know some people. haha. we should have an m3 road trip or something. it would be so nice. haha.

Charles,
Good to hear that you got your eisenmann installed.. how are the H&Rs holding? I can't imagine installing yet considering it's winter time now and road conditions in philly is pathetic.

I am definitely driving up to Boston one of these days, or we should meet up in NYC as midpoint!
