318i loud!

OK... '91 318i sedan... stock muffler finally rusted out... so I, in my infinite wisdom, went down to Advance Auto Parts and bought a nice $40 dynomax turbo muffler. Then I trekked on down to the local Olympco muffler and had the nice fellas welder on there. So far so good! Looks great! He even did a perfect replica of the OEM tailpipe. Well I paid them the $100 which I thought was a decent enough price... then I pull out of the drive way and the SOB is almost as loud as it was before I replaced the muffler! Ok... so apparently I'm used to turbo cars... any ole muffler will do... well now it sounds like there's a whole wake of angry bee's chasing me anywhere near half throttle or above 3k whicever comes first. So I go back to the parts store and buy a $20 Thrush turbo muffler, which I have used before on my Toyota p/u, no turbo and it was nice. I cut off the other new muffler, clamp this one on... badda boom badda bing! LOUDER!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF! Is there some kind of evil sound engineer at BMW that did this on purpose? I never had this issue with a 6 cyl BMW? I'm tired of the F-ing ricers thinking I want to run them all the time with my baby in the back! Does it need a resonator or something or do I just need a big nasty stuffy muffy? HELP!

Hi, I don't mean to be insulting in anyway.......but I think, you get what you pay for.... if you want quiet, you'll have to buy an OEM stock muffler...which is in the $350.00 to $400.00 range.....
