What are some good E9X M3 exhausts with no drone?!

Hey guys I was just wondering what are some good E9X M3 exhausts with no drone but with a nice German tone and pretty decent performance gains?

Also how is the B&B exhaust on these cars? Drone?

Thank you

Why don't you check out the Engine/Exhaust section of this forum (http://www.m3post.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=124). Tons of videos, and drone/tone have been discussed at length in many threads.

MXP & gintani sport are the best I have tried so far. Akra doesn't drone either if you don't mind spending the $$$$.

What exhaust is that? Did you post a vid or review? I know you're one of the exhaust whores on here.

Akrapovic Evolution doesn't drone!

Slip-on would be even quieter yet!

It sounds like almost a straigh through system. I'm really surprised it doesn't drone.

Yeah, I am really amazed myself. I think the gintani quad resonators are key.

I think a lot of people on this forum will tell you Akra. I have the slip-on and will love it. But, to be honest, there is very minor drone. That being said, it's probably a lot better than some of the alternatives. It's very livable. Some people say they don't notice it, but I do.

Nice to see an honest comment about the Akra. If you listen to most people here, you'd think that exhaust turns gas into gold.

Send a message via AIM to Dustin@AEp
The AE Performance Section 3 Exhaust has no drone, yet still has an exotic sound.

If you are interested in hearing it in person, I am located in Orange County.

Dustin

It doesn't?? I want my money back!!!!

Seriously there is no drone.
At idle to 1400 there is a vibration, which some would confuse as drone.

If you want drone, get a Remus. It drones from 1k-3k

Was your Remus sport or race?

I had an Akra and didn't like it.

It was too loud for the first 2 minutes from cold and would set off the neighbours car alarm.

I didn't notice any drone, but it did have a superb sound which sounded more like Italian exotica. I drive a BMW, so prefer something more down to Earth.

As for power, I didn't notice much difference. Under 3k revs the engine would sometimes stutter which I really didn't like.

Build quality was fantastic though and it was unbelievably light.

I have now sold it and gone back to stock which I am happy with.

Just my opinions, so please no flaming.
