Relatively cheap. Not exactly "loud," but the sound is certainly pleasant.

I remember back when I had my 3rd generation Honda Accord. We had forums just like this, lots of "3gee" owners. One mod "FREE" mod was to take your airfilter cover and reverse it. It opened up your intake with the filter still in place a lot. The car had more throat to it and was louder. Note: These were carboreighted.

I don't think this will work on our BMWs lol, just had a rememberance of old times.
