Just do the can mod. It's a very cheap mod. I did it and was very impressed.

Just get an exhaust, that alone changes the tone.
IMO if u want loud just go straight pipe to your existing muffler.

M mode ON, EDC to level 3, then down to 2, turn on car, turn it off, and do the golf tee mod, it does wonders for exhaust sound, especially on M3, e92 only, sorry if you have an e90.

you'll get the sporty sound of scrapes when hiting a speed bump.
combine that with a front lip, noone will hear your coming but they all will hear you leaving.

on true topic. Forget the exhaust, typically, ppl go for the mufler first, then change the xpipe for power gains later and find their muffler becomes overbearing, Leave the muffler stock, since it does not restict as much as poeple think. go for the xipe, hfc system like aa will give you amazing sound with a stock muffler, and then if needed do the acm mod on the exhaust. Should cost you round 200 for the mod at any local muffler shop.

I modded my stock, then went for performance muffler, then it droned too much so i had a H. chamber custom fitted to help with that, then x pipe, then it all got lauder, and now im looking for a stock exhaust to do the mod.
Cheers.

Driving fast on the Autobahn with my wife in the car made a whole lot of noise...until I told her to get out, then all was quiet again.

Okay, even though I normally hate posts that even slightly bash women, this was really funny!
