It's odd because i have one on my m10, and it sounds deeper than my buddy who has a magnaflow on his m42. Doesn't sound bad though.

its a good bargain, but I guess if I spent like a a grand on an exhaust I'd talk shit about it too lol, (not to say a that those exhausts aren't sweet, and better than the magnaflow)

also IMO its hard to make a BMW inline6 sound bad lol especially on the e30s
