exhaust with low interior drone but exotic out the back

I am trying to decide what exhaust to put on my M3 convertble that is being delivered next week. Not sure which of these four I should pick.

Agency power, Milltek, Corsa, Meisterchaft.

I have a milltek on the Ausi S4 - sounds great but a little droney in the cab.

I had a Corsa (touring) on my '05 Vette - sounded great inside and out except it was on the muscle car side out the back at idle and not the exotic sound that I am looking for.

Does anybody have any opinions, experience or ideas on these exhausts.

that exhaust sounds pretty good.

I'm actually also interested in the exhaust option. Something that sounds great yet doesn't give you a headache after 15 min. Is it possible to take a long trip with the car without going bonkers?

also look wise, I like slightly larger diameter tips than stock and stainless finish over chrome.

I have had Eisenmann RACE . Sounds great but there is drone inside the car.

I have sat in a Gintani sport . Sound also good but no drone at all.

Now I have a Akrapovic, Very quite doesn't sound exotic at all.

I have ride in M3 with full Ericsson system, and there were almost no drone in cabin at all.
I recommend Ericsson if you are looking at minimal drone with good sound and performance.

Akrapovic Evolution Exhaust is the best for me, I have tried several exhausts that I was aiming at no drone exhaust such as (as claimed) Dinan, AA, and some others but nothing beat the sound of Akrapovic with truly no drone at any RPM. Take one for all

Love my vanguard exhaust. No drone at all in the cabin, but sounds awesome outside.

I don't mean to hijack this thread, but is Akra slip-on louder or quieter than the Eisenmann Sport? I love my Eisenmann Sport, but even it is a bit droney at cruising speeds.

How does the Meisterschaft HP compare to the Eisenmann Sport? Is there any drone with the HP, and does it fit E90 sedans?

Meistershaft (Master of the shaft lol gay name) is loud and cracking doesn't sound like this car is supposed to and did I mention it is really loud
Eisenmann sport has that low grumbling German tone and is a bit louder than stock

But to be honest they really don't compare at all. One is a fine handmade German product, the other is cheap as hell and is tuned out for .10 cents each in some sweat shop in China for a profit. Way overpriced for what the Mastercrap is

Thanks for your input. However, I am still interested in the Meisterschaft HP. Specifically, I would like to know its sound/drone level relative to these other exhausts and whether all of these exhausts are compatible with sedans as well.

I have the Corsa from UUC and I think that it sounds awesome. No interior drone that I'm aware of. Plus it has somewhat of an exotic sound, not an American muscle car sound, which I do not think that this car needs.
