Enjoy and comments welcome!

I would say those with OEM exhausts below 4k revs there is no sound but after 4k revs you get the traditional rasp which I still really like.

The aftermath!

The Video Comparison:

Interesting. Thanks for posting. I had a Top Speed eBay rear muffler on the M3 that I bought that sounded better than any of the three aftermarkets in your post, but the thing was so loud, I replaced it with an oem muffler to keep peace at home. Sounded like a Austin Healy 3000 on steroids. No rasp at all.

To be honest, none of these sound right for a compact coupe or vert, which an E46 M3 is.
