Golf tee mod for the exhaust and airbox debaffle for the intake.

Total cost is ... 10 cents and it will take you half an hour to do both. Should keep you "noise happy" for a while.

Here's some links:

Brazeau Racing - Debaffled Airbox

edit: Or if you want slightly more expensive, but still on a budget, M3 exhaust.

Yes, just follow the instructions in the links I posted. All it involves is plugging up a hose with a golf tee as far as the exhaust, and for the debaffle you have to undo 2 10mm nuts (or whatever it is) and unclip a piece of plastic, then put the airbox back in.

Is it open with the car shut off or is it still open when it's running at idle as well?

I'm not sure but I think it might open when the car is shut down. Maybe ... never had a m52 powered car.
