Exclamation M3 exhausts, which one?

Looking for a new exhaust system for M3, I would need your guys' advice.

I'm looking at Meisterschaft GT2, Gintani sport, kreissieg, innotech,
I'm looking for a loudest and best sound level, power gain makes no difference to me, not quite into Kreissieg because of the price, just checked innotech and found out it was a valvetronic one just like the Kreissieg

However, whether valvetronic or not is fine for me, I just want the best and loudest sound available, probably with muffler only.

any other suggestions are also welcome, Thanks!

Gintani "RACE" (sport will not be nearly as loud)

Gintani race with no cats or resonators is about as loud as it gets.

Wow, we went about a whole 2 minutes without a "which exhaust should I get" thread.

Nah, thats alright man, I was just messing around...probably should have used a smilie. If we weren't allowed to talk about the same things over and over we would run out of stuff to talk about.

BTW, whoever things the Akrapovic Evo isn't loud is nuts...it literally makes the dishes in the kithchen shake when I start the car up in the garage.

It could very well be louder but if you are comparing videos for loudness that is like jerking off to a picture of a girl then telling everybody how good she is in bed. Also the Innotech isn't as popular as Gintani.

Edit: Since people want to be jackasses...I only said Innotech isn't as popluar as Gintani to state that it may be harder to get feedback thats all. Im no fanboy of either Gintani or Innotech. It's opinion that anybody who spends thousands of dollars on an exhaust should have their head examined. Meagan Racing sounds damn good for $550 shipped.

Yes. Make sure to always follow the popular choice

Fan boys are usually pretty good at making recommendations as well

I had the RPi GTM axle-back on my E93. That thing gives the M3 a very bad-ass racecar sound! The grins on the service mechanics' faces are just priceless, as they're pulling that beast in and out of the garage. Unlike other exhausts, the sound of this one doesn't die down through the revs. Also, the price for it brand new is a pretty sweet deal.

Just a shameless plug, as I've been meaning to put my RPi GTM up for sale. I love this thing, but I needed something a bit quieter for the long commute home from work. Also, I live in a quiet community and this thing will make babies cry.

I made this thread a while back regarding the most epic exhaust in existence. Seriously.

And then it dawned on me....answer inside. Seriously.




No. Seriously.
