Back to Exhausts....everyones question: Which one?

Ok. i had my magnaflow muffler. sound was ok, sent it back for warranty as the hanger broke off. now im up for grabs on which muffler to get. i was thinking the rogue engineering dms muffler. was wondering if any of you guys have this or heard it in reallife. what im worried about most is the droning. the magnaflow had zero drone on the highway. the sound just wasnt for me. ive heard the famous uuc muffler has virtually no highway drone, but it seems like the rogue has such a nice scream.
le me know what you guys think from your experiences. im still new to the bmw world.
Thanks in advance

I was looking at the rsc corsa aswell. But it seems like the rogue engineering exhaust is better bang for you buck. Looks the same, and from sound clips I'm liking the rogue. But sound clips never give you the original sound. But they both sound damn loud. Dunno if I like that part of it...cops are bored in york region

I've got a Dinan. Considering going back to stock. Exhausts are starting to sound so fake.

Don't get the RSC. I have it on my racecar and I had to add a 2nd muffler because it's too loud for a ****in racetrack (granted for the noise-limited ones but still). It's probably quieter with cats but I would not use it on the street. Get something with baffles.

At least our cars sound good with exhausts. Stock is nice though, you don't draw unwanted attention and it still sounds nice at WOT.

i have a Remus on my E30 ( im in the wrong subforum)
it goes well with my S52. Nice bark when you want to be loud, but zero drone when you're running steady

I disagree wholeheartedly. E36s sound like friggin' trucks with an exhaust. Sounds like a ford ranger or a dodge ram with falling off/non existant mufflers. Even the big UPS trucks sound similar! I hate them, and always will. Part of the reason I will never do a 24v motor swap to my E30.

Only way an M/S5x motor can redeem itself for sound is with lots of fancy cams, compression, good choice of headers and no cats. IMHO of course

Otherwise, stock is where its at!

Are you serious? Regular e36s I would agree but have you heard the scream of an E36 M3? I like it even better than the E46 M3 (with the exception of the CSL)

Are we talking about a Euro M3 or North American?

Because a North American M3 sounds pretty similar to an M50 or M52. Exhaust side that is.

Oh I'm damn serious. E36 M3s barely sound any different than regular E36s.

The only good sounding BMW small 6cyl that is 24v are the Euro S50s and the S54. Those are hard to screw up.
