Five months ago I installed B&B tri flo exhaust on my 2003 325i. First 3 to 4 months sounded great, then I installed K&N cold air filter and exhaust became louder. I replaced K&N with the origin filter. Exhaust sound did not get better, its getting louder and louder and my car is shaking when I accelerate on the low speed, pretty annoying. I heard that they get louder after some time, but mine is too loud.
Does anyone have same problem?
I am thinking to put back origin exhaust.

My Civic's muffler progressively got louder when a leak in muffler was getting bigger. It sounds pretty good until you go on highway and the constant 'BBbbhhhhmmmmm' drives you nuts.

There could be hole or loose connection in your exhaust.

Yeah. I heard Remus is quite too. I will keep my BB for now as i am going to change my car at the beginning of next year. I am kind a happy now after hearing friends Borla exhaust on 325. It's ridiculously loud.

Check that the brackets are tight and the pipe isn't shaking, and then check the gaskets at the pipe joins to ensure they're not leaking.

<span style='color:blue'>&quot;So my BM makes me a flash bastard? Then I guess you're just keeping it real from the seat of your nova?&quot;</span>

<span style='color:gray'>&quot;...and the home of the brave..... is bravey 130bhp from a 7 litre engine? 100bhp/litre or don't bother building it!&quot;</span>

<span style='color:red'>&quot;Aaahh the UK; where every road is jammed, under construction, poorly maintained and unfairly policed, at least we don't get over-taxed for it........ HA HA HA!&quot;</span>
