There is no "best" when it comes to car audio. No matter how good you think yours is, someone else's is better.

lol, hero to zero in 9 posts. oh dear.

Think of it this way, it only sounds the best if you like it. Different countries apprecaite different sounds, and different people appreciate different music. So unless you can make a stereo that integrated and good, then think about saying this is the best stereo ever!

He wasn't talking about his stereo. He has audio clips of his car with headers and UUC TSE3 Exhaust. Personally, I think it sounds good (not perfect). It is a little raspy, but its better than the raspy sound the M3 makes. And it sounds better than the fart cans on the ricers..(it actually sounds like it has some torque) and atleast its a real exhaust system and not just a muffler..

but to each his own.

NO, that would be me being dumb or fat fingering the enter key or something. I am the idiot! Thank you for bringing it to my attention. Havea good one.

And to the guy who started this thread, I hope the sound in the car isnt too unbearable after you have had fun with the new found race-car raspiness. I once installed a B&B Triflo 4" exhaust on one of my 'Vettes, and the thrumbing noise at cruise killed the enjoyment for me, especially if I had someone in my car. My GF preferred to drive her Civic then ride in the Vette after the exhuast change.
