If your car failed smog then it wouldnt be because of the muffler, it would have to be the catalytic converter. The Dinan mufflers are nice but as far as the Cat is concerned I recommend OEM Factory BMW cat. They are more expensive but have a much longer life than most aftermarket cats.
Also you didnt give a year or model on your car, if you do that you may get more input from other members.

If you failed smog because you have cat converter problem as the mechanic told you, then why are you even looking to get an exhaust? replace the cat with an OEM and you'll pass smog, there's nothing wrong with your exhaust... Well, if you really want to get a catback just for the hell of it, I'd look more to Eisanmann, sounds so nice...
