Hi I'v had my 735il for 3 months now and you know i would realy like to hear the the "song of the beast" i just can't get used to the lack of sound..I love the power the leather,the leg room (I'm 6'3) but it is just lacking a voice now I don't want loud, but a mellow roar...remember 30 or 40 years ago befor goverment told us how to think and what to hear ..I like the sound of the engine I like to hear the howl on the highway and I like this car..has anyone tried a change ,,,and yes I will dump the catalitic converter ...i figger after 200,000 k it's dead anyway..so 2 1/2 pipe with a magnaflow muffler ..any ideas??or wornings ..will the computer be able to ajust to the better flow? would a K&N air filter be worth any error codes?humm the kids seem to pull more power with the remaping of the fule system and spark management ..maybe a MSD 6 igniton upgrade..has anyone tried this?

Try rear COBRA back boxes with twin pipes ( thats 4 tails ) coming out the back, the rear valance will have to be cut to accomodate so they stick straight out, a good exhaust centre should do be able to do this standing on their heads!!!: the sound MAGIC.

K&N dont bother, a re-map is good, but if you really want awesome buy a 740i, also get the adaptations erased via diagnostics, then take it out for a good thrashing.

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
