Sounds good and for about 3-3.5k I would buy it.

Just wish it was easy to find it for that price.

Thanks for the great pix and commentary. Ordered mine last week. Joey Hand told me that, if he owned his M3 (BMW gives a new one ever 6 mos. or so) it would be the first thing to add to the car!

Bmw M3 Performance Exhaust

Anybody who has purchased the BMW Performance Exhaust has problems with the black paint inside the exhaust tips? mine is peeling off, hard to believe that BMW used such a poor quality coating paint for such an expensive exhaust, they should have left the tips without any black paint, the titanium looks just great without this black coating

Got a chance to take a few pictures of the M Performance Exhaust before installing it on the car.

Basically, it's a straight perforated pipes with in the muffler chamber, like the ACM mod with perforated pipes. The entire exhaust is a lot lighter (Inconel material) and I can just pick it up by one hand, which I cannot do by the OEM exhaust. Also the exhaust tips are made of polished Titanium.

Sound-wise,
1. It is in-between OEM and ACM straight pipe with no noticeable droning at lower rpm (< 2000rpm).
2. Some small amount of droning at freeway cruise rpm (2000rpm - 3000rpm).
3. It is noticeably louder especially at higher rpm with some nice raspy metallic sound (> 3000rpm).

Very thorough review. I would get this exhaust if it didn't have such a high price tag.

I just ordered my new M3 due to someone dropping out at the "112" stage, and this (the Performance Exhaust) is an option I can add for $3k installed. I have until the car comes in -- about 8 weeks -- until I have to make a final decision, but I am curious if there have been anymore people since the last post that have good/bad/indifferent experiences with the exhaust. Thanks!

Grab a six pack, type in M Performance exhaust under the search tab and have at it.

the only downside most have noted is the price for what you get. For the same price you can get better sounding exhausts. Better sounding is totally subjective...the only way to know is to check it out in person.

Anyone using test pipes with these?.. Have one on order with some turner pipes, hoping for performance and sound improvements.
