The only issue I have with AA is that its a very large piece and does not offer to much weight savings, if that is a criteria though, not important for all.

Sound is more important at the end of the day though, not to many AAs around in our part of the world.

Thats weird, everyone that I talk to loves that high exhaust tone. I think that the E46 sounds great with the Super Sprint exhaust.

My personal favourite M3 exhaust combination is:

CSL headers + euro cats + Meisterchaff Titanium exhaust. Sounds badass

Meets?

I use to have a Rasp X and Eisenman SUS Meisterchaft, sounding amazing.
My other sugguestion is to head out to a meet where there will be some M3s, and take a listen for yourself.
Thanks Stalker,
When & where are some of the meets comeing up?

A "Rumble"?

You will NEVER get a rumble out of that engine no matter which aftermarket exhaust you get. You'll just get more droning or more decibels at higher RPM's, but never a rumble.
For that, you'd have to buy a car with a North American V8 engine.

My suggestion - stay with stock. It's quiet, and it fits properly.
Learn to live with it.

Check the meets section here, or some other local forums like e46toronto.ca.

There is going to be a lot of drone with that unless you add a resonated section in there somwhere.

If you want your exhaust to "stands" out.. I guess u gotta deal/expect w/ the droning? ....

Again! OEM CSL/Euro Headers + Euro cats + Meisterchaft (Titanium) COMBO FTW!

You will live with it for a week, then you will hate it. Trust me.
