Kromer Kraft is the best sound end of story.. But since you can't get that you may as well just stick with a stock M3 exhaust.

I have a Remus exhaust and I love it. Not too loud, but a great sound at high RPM and nice sound when just cruising on the highway. When researching I also really like the sound of Stromung exhausts I heard online, but never found one for sale in Ontario.

Is there any good way to get a UUC exhaust in Ontario? I.e. any local shops that stock them? I've had REALLY bad luck with the duty / brokerage lottery lately so I'm forced to consider a Borla instead.

Stromung! Had it back when I had an E36 and it was the perfect balance. Quite for when you're sneaking home at 3am but aggressive when you have your foot to the floor!

Have to agree with THIS! Installed one on my M3 yesterday. It is awesome. at idle or around town it's not too much louder than stock but a couple octaves deeper, then when you honk it she roars beautifully! Looking forward to my 6 hour return trip to Ottawa today just so I can listen and give her some real break-in time.

Well I've put about 800km on my Stromung since installing and I love it even more than when I first put it on. It has "mellowed" a bit with break-in and startles me a little less when she first fires up as well as being a bit less rumbly when I'm just cruising at 40kph on resedential streets but the roar under acceleration is still fantastic. As far as performance I will swear that between the cat-back and the Carbonio intake it revs from 3500 to 5500 MUCH faster. I need to learn to shift faster again!
(firm believer that you get nothing but noise from intake or exhaust mods until you've done both)

I will add a disclaimer that I may partly have just gotten more used to it plus I tossed the hard top on her Sunday morning so everything is quiteter from inside than before.

I would also agree with the below statements. For the UUC I experience the same thing, on first cold startup its rumbly, and my neighbors hear it in their house (this was stated to me) but after warming up it mellows out and at idle and even cruising past known police traps I have not yet been pulled over (that is a plus). Street light drag racing and highway cruising now that's a different story altogether, from stop to 60km, its a definite roar (sounds like a tuned mustang v8, imo). on the highway and passing speed it just roars/sings! its hard not to stomp on the gas to get that sound emulating in the cabin. I would say the UUC has about 7500km on it, too bad I wont enjoy it until the springtime again.

Have about 3000km or so on the Stromung I put on my M3 now and loving it.

Deep but not loud when you're gentle with it (resedential) and roars beautifully when you put your foot down. Way lighter than stock, and far better looking, plus although I haven't got any objective tests to back it up I will swear that in combination with the carbonio CAI it revs "freeier" and the throttle response is noticibly improved.
