BMW M-Performance Exhuast Sound/Video?

Anyone installed the BMW M-Performance exhaust on their G20 330 yet?

Are there any video or audio clips? I have been searching the internet...

This is so hard to find, wondering if the sound is actually worth the install. Didn't know these are so expensive over 2k! CDN

Thanks

I would say it is NOT worth the 2 grand. If you go for an exhaust kit, I would go afternarket. It is much better sounding and the M Perf exhaust really isnít worth what youíre paying for.

I did a muffler delete on my G20 and I love every single bit of it. Lots of pops and burbles when in manual mode, very low toned sound when in idle, and great sound when in Sport. When you put the vehicle in comfort or eco pro, you cannot hear the car at all, as if it were stock.

Here is a video of my vehicle in Sport after I did the muffler delete:


I think it was definitely quieter at first, I think after 3-4 months now, it sounds much louder and definitely has more burbles. I also installed a JB+ and it definitely changed the sound.

yeah i know it will be pricier than other aftermarket options, but the fact that at resale you're less likely to take a hit makes it seem attractive. If it sounds and looks good in the process, well that's a win.

I hope someone posts what it sounds like if not I might I just wish I knew what my $2k will sound like?? It sounds pretty decent in sport mode stock.Edit I will be having the exhaust installed on the 18th and will post about it. I got 20% off of it from the dealer too.

Yes, please keep us definitely posted on a video after you have it installed!! I'm assuming the Carbon Fiber exhaust tips were extra? or could you re-use the stock ones?

Some photos or video of the muffler will be nice too to see the M-performance logo..

Will definitely post I would have reused the tips but the carbon fiber tips are required because the standard one will not fit, carbon fiber should look great though. Normally the exhaust is $1700 and the tips $650 which I was a little shocked by because I wasnít counting on doing the tips.

The dealer I bought from and am going to have it done at just has a 20% off parts coupon on their website and I just mentioned it when I ordered so normally it would be $1700 for exhaust plus $650 for the carbon fiber tips plus tax, with the 20% off it was $1992 with tax which Iím in PA so itís 6% here. I used the coupon on the black m performance kidney grill too.

kinda off topic but does this car has a resonator? If, so I think I'm just going to remove that.. $2k for sound is a bit much. The older exhausts were only around $1500 and didn't require special tips. Making us get the carbon ones isn't right...

Yes! Itís definitely louder and in sport mode pops more! The carbon fiber tips look great although I would have been fine with keeping the stock ones. Itís a much deeper sound without being over the top or anything.

I'm still patiently waiting as well for more videos from respective owners, unfortunately there are none that cover different driving conditions for the B48 inline 4 cylinder engine with M-performance exhaust.

The internet is scattered with sound for the M-Performance exhaust for the B58 Inline 6 cylinder engine.

Sharing a youtube clip from hong kong providing a good comparison of m-perf vs. remus vs. eisenmann exhausts. Video is in cantonese but provide a good sound demo of the 3 exhausts. Mentioned in the video, the Eisenmann exhaust is inclusive of a mid pipe upgrade as well.
