I’d recommend Dinan. I rocked a stock muffler while catless for a long time and was afraid to switch because I thought it’d be too loud. Dinan is perfect, almost stock like until you hit 3 grand or put the car under heavy load.

The music is just 10% of the audio, not to mention there is no music in the first video. Maybe you could do yourself a favour and get your ears tested.

I personally love the idea of the SS Street with the Race tips. On the other hand, my wife would probably kill me if I bought one at the moment... this may end up having to be my Xmas gift

She wonít notice if you get it delivered to a garage for installation.

As much as I'd love such a setup (well, with cats), that's quite literally a $10k exhaust right there.

... wow... i see that now, i need to read more before i post 😂. I was thinking that was just the new street muffler he was talking about! It was late after wrenching on the car... lol. Not afraid to spend some $ on good stuff, but not $10k. Iíd still really like to hear this new street muffler. Sounds like itís something thatís right up my alley

I feel most people want straight cut tips on the e46 M3. Iíve wanted SS Sport for a while, but I canít deal with the slash cut tips.

Will there ever be an option to get the race tips on a Sport system?

For what you described, you want the Supersprint Street muffler. DONE.

My recommendation, if you can hold off for a few more weeks, jump on the Group-Buy that I am working on. Supersprint and I have teamed up to offer an exclusive dual branded set of oversized mufflers, modeled after the one-off custom Supersprint muffler that I am running. These will be completely exclusive and offered no where else. We will be offering custom oversized versions of their flagship mufflers (Street, Sport, Race) to compliment the new Supersprint Twin-Piped section 2 and will feature 63.5mm piping and 65mm internal muffler piping. The Street version, like mine will have special race tips for a more aggressive look (compared to the standard Street muffler tips) and a few other neat features that I will mention at a later date. These mufflers will also have a flow capacity to support 513hp...so you wo chose it for my own car).

If youíre willing to wait for the next production run, you can get whenever tips you want. E.g. I have race tips on my SS Street.

I've been happy with RE Diablo and RE Rasp Pipe. It is a solid mid budget offering with slightly more volume and minimal drone (although I'm in a vert). This video captures the difference perfectly between stock and diablo mufflers and both runs utilize the RE Rasp which is nice. The rasp removes this car sounding like a dirty south Civic (I know some of you love rasp and that is cool, you all my brothers).

I've read a few threads where it seems some thought the Diablo reduced overall HP however I saw other dyno threads where this clearly wasn't the case so I don't know. Exhaust came after FI and the butt dyno felt no difference either way.
