That exhaust will be horrible for your m3. It will however be perfect for mine. So forget about it and direct him my way. If its half of I will pay you another 10% finders fee.

You got dibs. There was a guy on Chicago Craigslist selling a billy boat muffler a few weeks ago. However he claimed he only wants $1000 as it cost him $1800. Too bad for him I found brand new ones for $1100 + shipping.

Either way OP. I personally love the sound of BB exhaust.

They are so dam loud! Maybe I'm getting old,but it sounded like a hollow box on the end of open exhaust. If that's what you want,it is awesome! But the rasp echos off of the neighbors house when you drive by no matter how slow you go. The best way to hear it is to buy it and try it for yourself. Good luck.

Well, you just made my mind up for me. All of these exhaust systems for these cars seem too loud.

Modbargains.com $1124.95 They are not the quitest but compared to some , they are not too loud at all. Kind of a happy medium in my opinion. I will be buying a BB or a Borla (both with ar20 resonator in section 1),whatever I come across at a good price first.

I'm looking for quiet. I've already bought the rasp pipe. Now I just need to find a quiet muffler.

Look into a Milltek. Civilized performance and great tail pipes. I should make a vid of mine. I have headers,200 cell downstream cats,oem section 2 and the Milltek muffler. Sounds great for me on long trips,and still makes some noise when you hammer on it.

That's they way I'm leaning now. There's just so many options and the exhaust topic is beat to death on here. I had it narrowed down to b&b,Eisenmann or milltek. After watching a bunch of you tube videos I think I may have made my mind up.
