Hey guys,

Just wondering if there is anyone running the UUC Corsa TSE3 on a Auto trannie, if so how does it sound. Really wanna hear it in person. I know "330CI" has one and loves it. Heard there isn't any "droning" at stable speeds, and add's about 10hp and 18torque(From UUC) Ive seen some vids of an auto car with the exhaust but its only the interior sound video. Sound good, not tooo loud, just wondering what its like from the outside. Well, hope someone here can help me out. Thanks

Peace

what do you guys mean it will sound the same? in terms of the actual sound yea I agree, but when driving the way it sounds when shifting/downshifting, I think will sound pretty gay on an auto.

I had a TSE3 on my bros old 328is (had it customer fitted by Charlie), seriously, it was the best sounding exhaust I ever heard! but was really really loud on his 328. I used to set off car alarms all the time + he got pulled over for it lol, but in tunnels, it was so awesome.

his 330i has the steptronic transmission, meaning he can go into manual mode. i've never driven the bmw version, of this (have the 6-spd manual) but im pretty sure you can hold gears right up to redline (6800rpm raised in the ZHP*rockout*) just as you could in a manual, downshift and whatever.

Trust me, you'll get droning, which I liked on my 328 but most of my passengers didn't :) ... get Eisenmann

any exhaust will drone on an auto unless you drive it in DS or manual and keep the revs up. He means how it will sound on an auto in terms of shifts, the answer is not as good as in a manual unless you drive it in M all the time. I had dinan with straight pipes and love it, and from seeing TSE3 vids, I would have gotten the dinan again in a second

+1. I ****ing LOVE your exhaust though I haven't heard it at full throttle. I was in awe that yours doesn't drone whatsoever.

I hate to be the one to dissent but, I'm not a huge fan of the UUC setups. I prefer the wailing, high-pitched, screaming exhausts instead of the deep growly ones at high revs.

i called uuc and they say that there is no droning on regular speeds, its only when you step on the gas. Also they say its very loud only if you have headers installed. So, i think im gettin it, prolly just meet up with "330ci" and give it a listen.

that makes no sense, droning is at LOW rpm's... not high.

hahah awesome description.

I wouldn't describe droning as BWAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH lol. It's that deep, bassy resonance inside the cabin at low engine speeds. Some people get very annoyed by it. Think of constantly having a subwoofer on at very low frequencies but without the shaking, just very deep resonating sound.

I TOLD you the TSE3 is the best!!!!!! howmuch did you end up paying for it?

ZHP_Bimmer05
07-07-2008, 12:27 AM
actually to tell you the truth, calling Tunerworks 2morrow morning to place the order. With taxes and shipping its about $1689.45. But imma call UUC and see if they will beat it and see which way it will come to my door faster

07-07-2008, 12:21 PM
if you not in a rush and want to save some $$$, wait a bit, UUC has weekly specials on their stuff, i've seen free shipping on the TSE3 and some other deals like 10% off and stuff....


either way i TOLD YOU!!! TSE3 is the BEST! :D

vtec is for pussies. real honda's are fast without it.

that exhaust is gonna drone on an autobox, for the reasons that everyone has explained. drone = cruising on the highway at 3K rpm, not high revs.

Don’t listen to people that have not clue man…. Just place an order and count the days down :)

It takes few thousand km to break in the sound too, everyday it gets better and better :)

that price included shipping,tax,and the exhaust, exhaust is $1295

1700 for an exhaust!? Dude.....

the system itself is just under 1300, but if you get it shipped to canada you have to pay tax,duties and shipping is more too....


what i did was, i had it shipped to buffalo and installed it there and left my stock one there,,,,

^^^^ track cars only ;)

ZHP_bimmer, give me a call tomrrow..ill see what I can do for you as we're a UUC distributor.

Anuk, the price is high because a "cat-back" is a header back system (when comparing E46 to E36) as the cats are in the headers.

i dont know if your car is an automatic but automatics drone when manuals dont. not saying his will but there is still a good chance his car is gonna be dronning like my civic with it's fart can.

go to the UUC site, and watch the inside video of the 330i Automatic, you hear nothing. only when you rip it

07-10-2008, 01:34 PM
Dronning is subjective i dont know what you'd care what UUC says, when you get it your opionion is probably going to be different.

Obviously since they are selling it to you, theyll tell you anything.
