    Hello all, does anyone know what sort of exhaust system I can put on my 02 M3 to get that deep rumble sound, Ive seen a few on youtube but am not that impressed. Any suggestions?

    Try looking at Eisenmann on youtube. heres a link for you:

    Don't think you will ever get a real deep rumble from a M3 as it's down to the type of engine it is. Try a V8 for a more deeper rumble.
    Hope this helps a little.

    Ever heard a straight through exhaust? Is this the sort of sound you like?

    great sound, but what about the police? he'll end up with points and a fine if he got caught as the decibel level would be to high.

    Yeah, I wondered about that and it's why I wouldn't get a straight through on mine (not to mention doing 100 miles on the motorway at the same revs each weekend would do my nut in!).

    What are the rules on exhaust noise? As long as you don't downshift and rev to hell your car, would the cops even stop you?

    It's really a little hit and miss so to speak. Basically the police do have decibel meters and occasionally set up places to stop vehicles and then test the exhaust noise levels. If too loud then you'll get a nice piece of paper with a fine and points.
    I believe the legal limit is 101 decibels by the way.

    You won't get a rumble as the ///M engines are more screamers, even the V8's and V10's.

    Listen to some you tube vids, personally I think supersprint (supply Hamman)have a quality sound and are a very good quality exhuast manufacturer, their Race exhaust sounds superb at full chat. Eisenmann (supply Alpina as well as others) are also very, very good and supply their exhasts at 3 different sound levels. Schnitzer are made by Remus and are a bit louder, some say quite a bit louder with drone on during motorway driving.

    Good luck
