Ok, yes maybe that's the problem🤦*♂️ Can find any M-performance exhaust for this car in Europe either. I guess need to order a downpipe and exhaust from the states. Any ideas from where?

In theory you can buy tune DownPipe for USA cars, buy OEM MidPipe from USA cars, and M-Performance silencer from USA cars. But I'm not sure for 100% that it will fit plug and play. USA exhaust system and Europe have different connections, because of that you can't just install M-Performance silencer in Europe car. If you can install USA exhaust configuration you will get maximum performance and sound that builds on OEM parts.

I currently have a 340i MPE X AWE midpipe. It sounds identical to the MPPSK full setup and its awesome.
I will be able to compare to the new M340 with MPE when it arrives.

Would anyone with MPE be willing to take a few minutes out of their day and do this to get a good recording of MPE sound?

Uploaded an MPE drive off video for those that want some more sound clips. Will add the revving video and another acceleration/flyby type video tomorrow.

Wow that drive off video sounded great.

So a fully stock car but with an MPE upgrade!

The stock cars I have heard in youtube videos are a fair bit quieter. Probably the difference between hearing them in a recording vs live.....
This one has some burbles, but other than that sounds quieter to me:

Im pretty sure you'd know if your car came with the MPE. You definitely would have paid for it, it's $2000. Check your window sticker. Some people are just more sensitive to small differences in recordings but those differences are probably magnified in real life.
