Hey everyone, I have been reading this forum for a while, but haven't posted much yet because I don't have a BMW. I will be getting a '93-'95 325is pretty soon, and have been putting together a list of mods I plan to do to it. I think I've got it pretty much all worked out except for the exhaust. What I am trying to achieve is a civilized exhaust note for daily driving, but I want it to growl when I rev it up. The exhausts I am currently looking at are UUC Twin Silencer, AA Gen. 3, Dinan, etc. I do not want my car to sound ricey at all, and I have seen Deloriant's System U videos, and it seems too loud for me. Any input would be great.

My vote goes for Rogue Engineering!

That's what I'm going to put on my 325is unless I cheap out and do an OEM M3 exhaust...

Twin Silencer is MUCH quieter than the System U.

I don't know if an intake is on your list of mods, but if you are looking for a sound that's civilized at low rpms but roars when you open the throttle, check into an ECIS intake. I don't have an exhuast, but I got an ECIS a little while ago and my friends thought I got an exhuast when I floored it past them. If anyone doesn't want to spring for a cat-back they should get an ECIS intake. Just my thoughts. Good luck!

Thanks man, I will definitely look into that. I have an intake on my list, but I was planning on buying a cosmos one. Anyone have input on the sound quality of them?

Go with the AA or the UUC, you can't lose either way. The TSE is more quite than the system U, but sound similar at WOT.

Cosmos CAI sounds awesome!!!
