Headers for E46 330i?

Hi guys, I'll be doing my oil pan gasket on my e46 330 soon.. while I get parts I'm doing a lot of while you're in there stuff. One of the items I really want to do is headers.. what'd be a cheap and affordable option other than shitty eBay headers? My friend is running AA headers but they're also $650. What do you guys think about these?

From my experience, it will be stupid loud. You have no cats, (and I assume no resonators) and an aftermarket exhaust...they are extremely loud at all RPMs and drone like none other. That's my warning.

Now, do they sound sickkk? Indeed they do, everything comes at a cost though.

Transmission: ZF S6-37
I did my oil pan gasket on my ZHP a year ago and while I was in there I installed Ebay headers. It sounds great with the rest of the exhaust stock. Just cut the rear O2 bung 1" shorter before you high temp paint them and install.
I also did the CCV system (o2 pilot mod), M3 engine mounts, steering guibo, manifold (header) studs with new nuts, and eliminated the SAP with a BMW block off plate. Just get someone to tune your DME and you won't get the fuel smell when you come to a stop.

I installed ebay headers on my car over the summer.

Honestly, one of the best mods I have done but you have to make sure the headers fit your car. I bought SS reps from someone local here and he told mr they are for a 330/325 but the headers were for 323/328! I had to get my exhaust cut and extended for it to fit.

FYI its going to smell bad outside the car and when you roll the windows down.
