ok a while back i got pulled by a cop for a an illeagal exhaust system. i know mine is a bit loud and very unique but its 100% stock. i got my bmw dealership to help me win the case ( i fought it). so anyways i thought u can change ur exhaust. and then its not that loud . . . its quieter than a big truck or sumthing and muuch quiter than those ricers coffee cans. . . so anyways any1 here have an exhaust souning like this, ive attached my mp3, i think maybe the early 325 e36 were like this.

do u remember what it sounded like stock ? i wanted to know if other 325 had the same sound, i know the 328, and any e46 dont sound like that, the stock is very quiet, maybe just a that year. o ya i forgot to mention i have a 92
btw whats there to be sorry about . . . did u understand the post ? i just wanted to know if ppl with that model sound similar.
and u cant tell how lound it is from an mp3 cuz it depends how loud ur speakers are . . . even tho im sure urs is much louder
I have a 1993 and its not to loud but it sounds a lot better than that.

ok people. now i am convinced i have a stock system w/o leaks. for 4 reasons.
1. my bmw dealership says so
2. one person in this forum witha 92 says so
3. one person with a 92 in another forum says so
4. the other day i was in da parkin lot a saw a e36 325 back up and pull away. ezactly same sound. i bet it was a 92
I don't know what model and year you drive FOX, but that mp3 sounds EXACTLY the same as my stock '92 325i! (No, really...) I have the previous owner's invoice for the stock muffler. The only non-OEM part (so far) on my car is the K&N filter.
As I posted, the '93 and later Vanos equiped engines are quieter, sorry boys...

ok u cant tell how loud form an mp3 bc it depends on my recording volume.
