I miss listening to the radio sometimes...

The sound of my M Perfomance exhaust is so addictive that I cant keep
the radio on for more than few minutes and then back to windows rolled
down and tons of revs down the pipe..

I tried some good ol' loud rock but I could still hear the roar in the
background.... needless to say that the music was gone... maybe I will
find a cure as I get accustomed to it.... or maybe not..

Loving every second of my life

Are you selling the GT3 or trading the X3?

Thanks and congrats on your new car as well.

You will love that exhaust... to me, well worth the price tag. Enjoy it!

I don't have an X3. Maybe you confused me with someone

I already sold the GT3. I wanted to make sure she was sold before I placed the order for the M3

Thank you I love the sound of the Performance Exhaust from the videos!

M3 with stock exhaust sounds great, but way too muted. And when you go after market you lose the OEM tone for sure...

Still loving the M Perf exhaust here! I should've skipped the enhanced audio system, I don't use it. I only listen to music in my Jeep.

Listened to music much more in my 335. On my second exhaust set-up now Akra Evo and find myself just switching off music. Not complaining one bit.

I feel sorry for anyone who's going to ride in my car this winter... cause the window is staying rolled down

I wish I could even lock the passenger side window in my E92 M3!!!

I might have to take the door panel off and disconnect the power window switch

I'm not usually the kind of guy that drives around with the windows down.... but with the M3, especially in 70 degree weather, I roll down the window to hear my cold start and during the drive. I've got the OEM mod. 100% better than stock.

The new M3 has a radio!?!








(Seriously though, last time I drove one, I never turned the radio on... engine noise > everything.)

Looking forward to November when I can roll down the windows and hear what y'all are talking about. Until then, windows up and a/c cranking.

Once you get accustomed to it is when you remove the rear seats/trunk lining
