I really just want it to sound nice w/o buying an expensive exhaust system. Like under 300 bucks

here's a link to awesome 318 site with all kinds of info on the M42, its for the e30 but the engine info is the same. http://www.esatclear.ie/~bpurcell/index.html

and for performance, the 318's already have adjustable cams so you can tune your cars power from low end to top end by yourself up to +/- 6 degrees
