How loud is your Bimmer?

Sup gurl?

I see you checking out my ride, because you could hear it from a mile away.
though I think that my stereo is being drowned out by my CV joints... awfully noisey from the front of my poor little bimmer... I mean, Yo gurl you like dem beats?











but seriously whats the loudest part of your car and how quiet is your ride when you go full stealth?

Stock exhaust and a performance intake keep it where I want it. Nice and stock quiet when puttering around town, but it howls when it give it the beans.

Catless headers, 3" back to a magnaflow dual resonated muffler. It's loud, but not annoying.

Those noisy CV joints in the front of your BMW lol. I think you have bigger issues than the noise.

Both my E46's have been extremely quite on the highway. Literally tyre noise is about it... The M3 is too quite for me, I don't want a car that has to be doing 5,000+rpm to make any noise. Nothing that can't be solved with an exhaust though..

You guys heard about this thing called Youtube?

Apparently you can post videos of your car with SOUND!!!! Maybe with this amazing technology we could actually hear the noise of your car.

Writing about noise is like talking to a blind man about colour.
