Glorious... But the neighbors gone hate it!

I had the akrapovic rear end installed on my E92 M3 about 6 months ago. Have been very happy with it since.

So about 3 weeks ago I decided to order the XPipe.

Let me tell you, what a difference in sound.

I'm no pro, but the sound it puts out at anything over 3K RPM is simply glorious. Huge huge difference between the stock XPipe. Much louder

That being said, when need be, throw it in a higher gear and feather the throttle, and it returns to its previous form. Which I think is great.

Cant say there is that much (if any) of a difference in the way it sounds on start / cold start or idle. Same boomy (which I really like) sound it had when just the rear end was installed.

I have the bpmtune stage 2 sitting on my laptop ready to install. Have not had a chance yet as I just picked her up from the shop and drove the 20km home.

Happy as hell with my purchase!

The stage II will change the sound even further (for the better). Congrats on the upgrade.

You can always weld in resonators behind the X section to make the volume more linear.
