Will I be happy with a Meistershaft GT for a DD??

I'm considering buying a Miestershaft GT for my E93 M3. Will I be happy with this system (connecting pipes too) as a daily driver? or too loud??

I have it on mine and it's my DD! If you leavers center pipes stock it's perfect and won't annoy you at all IMO. But once you start modifying the x pipe it gets loud as hell.

Yes, I think you will. I have the rear section (plus their connecting pipes) GT on my car with no other exhaust mods and it's great for a daily, while still having some volume to it (but not to the point of being obnoxious). There is some drone around 3k RPM, so if you do highway driving frequently take note of that. I usually have the windows down (when it's warm out at least) and it's much less bothersome.

You have an E93, the sound is multiplied due to lack of insulation. It might wear on you.

I think so! The SR connecting pipes I dot believe do anything to make it louder? I have them and I think they are just to connect the muffler to the xpipe. I remember when I first put my GT on it was a really great sounding tone and not overly loud but it is louder than something like a dinan muffler. I say try it, see if you like it, if not take it off and just sell it on here.

My contact at Vivid Racing says there is no drone with this system? I wonder?

It drones. You can hear it in the car at highway speeds. Whether it is too much is very subjective. For me, I didn't mind it at all, it was only a faint drone. As long as you don't change the x-pipe, this is fine for DD.

I tried a lot of x-pipes with mine before I finally sold it because I couldn't find and x-pipe that would keep it quiet enough. So if you plan to get an x-pipe in the future, I'd skip it.

I just drove from Va, to Ga, to Kentucky, and back to Va with my recent Meisterschaft GT (stock xpipe with SR Pipes) and you can definitely hear it but it's not very loud. It sounds pretty good riding beside the car at highway speeds as well.

When I was coming back into the office from lunch, the security guy laughed and said, "I have one thing say, UPSHIFT."

I did have one awkward moment with the exhaust. As the car was slowing down to let a family cross the side walk, the DCT down shifted and the lady thought I was revving at her to hurry with her toddler and gave a not-so-nice face haha.
