ZHP exhaust or Performance exhaust?

looking into exhaust options.

spend $300 or so on a used ZHP or double that to get an BMW Perf. exhaust?

ZHP is the cheapest option right now, I'm sure it has no gain, just sound for 325i cars.

check rear sway bar links, you need to be on a ramp, not just jack up from one side.

grab the swaybar and see if you hear or see any movement by the links.

pretty common on all cars.
