To me putting a Borla or Magnaflow on an M3 is not right, these things belong on a Mustang or Camaro. From the few clips I've heard they sound sound loud but not as refined as some of the higher end exhausts. Why buy an expensive M3 and then go cheap on the exhaust. Should've bought a pony car.

I've got a Megan racing exhaust w a sport x pipe and it sounds great. No need to spend thousands on an exhaust there are plenty of cheaper options out there that sound great. Plus if your looking for some extra power test pipes create a great sound as well as freeing up some extra ponies

To each his own. An exhaust that has aweful drone is cheap to me, I don't care if it's packed with diamonds...still sounds cheap.

the Dinan exhaust is real nice for the m3, expensive i guess but perfect sound when you get on the gas and real quiet when cruising

You are more than entitled to your opinion, just a FYI, Turner on his Grand AM M3s runs Borla...

I don't think you have to worry too much about people feeling free to disagree on an internet forum.

Can anyone chime in on their overall experience before/after buying a new exhaust? Was it worth the money? I need a little convincing

Thanks everyone
Given you're looking at Eisemann Race, i guess you're looking for loud. I have a muffler delete, which is (a) race loud, (b) drops 40lbs, (c) inexpensive. My personal opinion is why spend thousands on a race exhaust when you can do muffler delete for much less, and get the same result/benefit. I'm local if you want to have a listen to it in person.

I just did a short video of my OEM perforated pipe replacement mod. I'll make one of accelerating through the gears, once I get my GoPro so I can attach it to the car.
