Depends what exhaust, if you're talking about just the muffler then it will add nothing but sound and loose you some weight. Lowering springs will give it a more aggressive look and may increase handling a bit. So which one means more?

And give you alot worse ride. And ruin your shocks.


I say exhaust. I cant remember if you have an M3 or a 330, but the magnaflow muffler, when paired with headers, sounds great.

For M3, I'm not sure what you should look at. well, OK. If you want power, get the bimmerworld 3.5" single race exhaust, if you want sound buy the full super sprint race

Greg has had lowering springs on oem shocks for a couple years and done a ton of miles and his are fine.

I don't think he wants to spend the money on a full ss system otherwise he wouldn't be comparing the cost against lowering springs.

I know.

Lowering springs are like $250 and even a cheap cat-back will be $1000+.

That color looks great What is it?

Sorry I forgot which car you had. I'm pretty sure I asked like yesterday or something

This sounds awesome, maybe that Borla muffler is the way to go.



I think you should do headers first though. You'll get power and sound.

No, you would also use your stock cat-back exhaust
