Welcome aboard, beautiful car, I used to hang out on the Vortex for a while when I had my 2003 Passat GLX, that is one of the largest forums out there for sure.
What do you think of the engine sound and the exhaust? On mine I can literally hear the car moving through the shift points as the engine is very smooth but audible. Its only somewhat of an annoyance on mine at speeds above 68mph, the throaty but somewhat nasal drone of the engine can be a little much on occasion.
I think the exhaust and intake sound nice. Although on my C i had straight pipe, so the bimmer is hush hush... Only thing that im not fond of is the whistle noise that the intake makes. Around 2k it will kinda make a turbo spool noise to 2.5k...
Nice looking ride. Really like the black trim around the headlights. Let us know what you do to up the performance. Good luck with it.

I'm not looking to do any performance mods to it, if I was gonna even think of doing that I'd just buy an M3
