Question Difference in E90 and E92 M# exhausts?

I currently have an E92 335, and when I was buying my exhaust, I learned that the E90 systems were slightly different (maybe more $, I think?) due to there being an extra piece (X pipe?) involved, that the E92 did not use. I believe this also contributed to the stock E92 exhaust being louder and more aggressive than the E90 system.

Does something similar hold true for the M3 coupe vs sedan? I figured with the V8, rather than i6, the configuration could be quite different. Shopping around for an E90 M3, so I'm trying to learn what to expect.

Thanks

The only difference I'm aware of between the exhausts on the e90 and e92 M3s are the length of the exhaust tips. Some manufactures use adjustable tips so their complete exhaust systems can be used on both.
