the stuff on bavarian motorsports is all pretty good i think. i was more limited on exhaust choices because my car is a 4 cyl, but i got the scorpion exhaust from them and it sounds great. deeper tone at idle, gets less and less noticeable the faster i get, i also get compliments on the sound from all over the place.
about the uuc exhaust i have heard nothing but good things about them as well, they would be a good brand to look into.

I "think" I have one. I bought the car with the existing exhaust, and was told it was a Borla. The exhaust came off an ///M3, and personally I LOVE IT!!! If you PM skawful, he can shoot you an audio clip of what my car sounds like (I'm not great with uploading such things, so I emailed it to him, he should have it--I'm not at home or I would).
I had heard about borla and wanted to get one on my car but I asked a BMW specialist who had done lost of exhaust work on bimmers. He said a couple words "over-priced piece of crap" they aren't the best quality either. I have a magnaflow which is popular on e36's (great sound) and it has lifetime warranty, and is made significantly thicker than a borla. Borla's are expensive and don't sound all that great on bimmers if you ask me. mine wasn't cheap, but it was the exact sound I was looking for.
AMG can't build an NA engine that can compete with M engines, so they stick in a supercharger and say their cars are faster. BMW could simply do the same, but they don't out of principle.</span>
Yeah Les, I find it kinda funny all these people ripping Borla up. They are a great company that has been around for a long time. Someone said they use thinner metal, have you measured the two side by side? And if so where they both 6061 alluminum? There's a lot to be said for using a better qualtiy aluminum and making it thinner, as this can significantly reduce weight.
I don't mean to come off cocky, but opinions made on this board will affect one's buying decisions. Borla is a very good company that stands behind their product (1million mile warranty), and if I do indeed have one (man, I wish I knew) they sound amazing!
