Hey all, I'm here to complain.

I've owned 3 e34's to date. I had a 93 525i which i wrecked , my new 95 525i, and my dad has a white 93 525i. The exhaust note on the 93 sounds MUCH nicer than the one on my 95. The 93 just sounds deeper and richer. Is there a reason for this? And what aftermarket exhaust would give my car a nice deep throaty sound? I'm not looking for something overly loud, just a nice refined throaty tone.

That nice deep sound is probably coming from a hole somewhere alogn the piping/muffler. My stock exhaust is pretty loud and deep. Ive set off car alarms wiht it by just driving past the cars. Honestly Dinan makes a great sounding exhaust for our car. Supersprint has oen but it sounds too high pitched and overzealous. I'd also stay away from Remus as it somehow seems to loose its tone completely. Dinan might be the way to go (although its expensive). I havent heard the ACS or UUC (if availible). If Eisenmann made one for our cars I think it would sound magnificent. My friend has one on his e46 M3.

agreed. your 93 was louder because the exhaust was not in as good of shape as the 95.
Your also not going to get a "throaty" sound from a 2.5 liter engine no matter what exhaust you use. The best you'll get is a midrange sound that is steady and controlled. Personally, with the 2.5liter I'd keep it quiet.

But if you still want a different exhaust, check Eisanmann and Racing Dynamics.

Thats simply not true, the exhaust on my 93 was replaced several months before i got it. Everything from the headers back.

About not getting a throaty sound from a 2.5l, yeah, thats definatley not expected. Its not a V8 or anything but the 93 still sounds nicer than mine.

Perhaps I'll get a remus or supersprint someday...

I dont really like the sound of Remus. Has that American sound to it. As sp0rky said, your car sounds BEAUTIFUL in th emidraneg.

Accelerate and decelerate int he 3-4k range adn youll love the sound, I know I do.

There were several OEM mufflers for that year, perhaps it was replaced (on the 93) with one other than what you have on your 95.

Sporky, perhaps you're on to something there. I'll have to take a look at that when i need a new exhaust.

I'll prolly go with the remus or supersprint exhaust anyway.

Supersprint will probably be the better option.

If I was you, I'd just run straight pipes.

And I will if I still own the car when it's exhaust starts to go shitty.

ACTUALLY, there are several who run side pipes on the e34. However, the majority of those people own race prepped cars or are turbo'd and want more flow.

SuperSprint has a much much "smoother" sound than the Remus. The Remus is great on the v8 powered cars, but is much too raspy and amplifies the "puny" sound of the I6.
