I wish you guys could hear the Dinan M5 we have. It sounds so amazing that it gives me goosebumps.

I just bought a 335i coupe and engine has a ripping sound at WOT,but does not sound as sweet as my previous IS350.The WOT throttle scream of the IS350 engine is what I wish the 335i sounded like.Corsa mufflers go on soon to improve exhaust not over the golf t mod.
