Exhaust help

I have a 320i and I'd like to get rid of my muffler as it has a whole in it. instead of getting a stock replacement, I would like to get an aftermarket exhaust.

Can any of you recommend a nice sounding exhaust? I want something fairly quiet while in idle but has a deep growl once you get on the peddle.

Now as you know the 320i has a single in and out exhaust much like the 318i, but I want a dual out exhaust much like the (325,328,m3).

What should I get and what modifications am I looking at having to make to get it to fit.


(And if someone is selling their aftermarket setup and it's want I'm looking for drop me a PM)

Thanks

looks nice, yes; but the sound can be a bit loud. on my 318 it sounds sweet at 3500+ rpm, but is very loud & droney between 2-3500 revs. Now that it's got about 5,000km's on it, it's gotten better; but still a bit loud.

It all depends on your tastes!

On my 318i i have a Bosal Exhaust system. You can barely hear it on idle and it gets a bit louder the more you punch it but does not have an annoying rasp and is still quiet. I love it.

if you want dual out, just get an 325 cat, and then an m3 exhaust. There is someone selling a set on here i think for 150 each.

anybody know what the difference is when you remove the resonator? like how much louder or does the tone change for better or worse

Had the magnaflow 14815 installed over the weekend and it sounds nice.... it has a great tone to it and sounds sweet when you step on it... and not too much cabin drone either!
