E93 owners: what exhaust are you running?

I've been driving my e93 for a month now and it's been a blissful experience. The engine and intake sounds incredible at WOT with the top down but the stock exhaust is way too quiet as I can't hear it at all.

I'm curious what you guys are running/have ran and think is the best option for a vert. Also, is it a different driving experience from having an exhaust on a coupe/sedan with windows down?

Congrats OP!! I absolutely LOVE my Akrapovic Slip-On with CF quad tips on my vert ... Just the right amount of aggressiveness without being too over-the-top and obnoxious IMHO ... Here are some pics:

It kinda sucks that some of the exhausts that are single sideways canister won't fit on the E93, e.g. Megan, etc.

I'm debating on getting an exhaust, been leaning toward the MPE, though have yet to hear one in person though.

I've got the Megan. I cut the center part from the bracing. Once I get time, I'll get it redone at an exhaust shop so that it goes over the muffler.

AA test pipes and Megan exhaust sound amazing with the E93. Better than any other exhaust I've heard so far when under load, though I prefer a more exotic sound vs the GTM racecar sound that most people on here like (Akro, Eisenmann Race, etc)

I don't have a vert, but I highly recommend corsa. Not crazy loud, awesome sound, and one of the cheaper options. Had the AA before and liked it, but it was too loud for where I live and drive.

You can if it costs as much as a used supercharger kit.

MPE. It sounds almost exotic with the top down.

I have the OEM exhaust mod and it sounds great. It's a lot louder with the top down (obviously) so it matters how loud you like it. Personally it's almost too loud with the top down for my tastes but perfect with it up.

The easiest and yet best sound is a cat less or HfC xpipe and OEM rear. Sounds like race car at WOT but stock otherwise and no drone

Active Autowerke Full catless exhaust + supercharger. My neighbors dont complain at all about it as it idles fairly quiet. With windows up driving normal it sounds great but doesn't drone. Even at WOT it sounds amazing but doesnt drone [u2b]http://youtu.be/SfY-79tUNSk[/u2b]
