Megan Racing axle back testing Hero HD3 sound

Not much to look at, just wanted to test the cut out rear door for sound

I'm sorry, but that sounds as good if not better than most of the exhausts available for this car. Hats off to Megan for a good product and a reasonable price!

Nice vid bro...sound representation was pretty good.

Not taking anything away from Megan - I'm not familiar with this product. But I will say that exhaust note is not the only consideration for most members on this forum. Horsepower gain, drone, weight reduction, appearance and build quality also play heavily into people's decisions on which exhaust to purchase.

OP, exhaust sounds good.

Wow. I like it a lot. In fact it's the best sound I've heard on an M3. You still have the stock cats?

Sounds great. How do you like it for daily driving? Too loud in the cabin at cruising speeds? Any drone?

Thanks.

Thanks.
I found that a ton of drone was created by the plastic tray that covers the spare tire area, the trunk floor, & the trunk lid, essentially the exhaust tone would resonate the plastic tray and everything else & amplify what comes out of the tips. So i put dynamat all over the plastic tray and tiny amounts on everything else. With the windows up you cant hear it at all unless your right foot is to the floor.

I actually think its too quiet in the cabin now with the Dynamat. but i know what kind of noise comes out the back so i'm cool with quiet inside.

My kids even say the car is quieter now and asked me what i did to it?
