Kind of a general "any 6-cyl with performance exhaust" type of sound....

Except the Guilia Quadrifoglio.

Agreed. Better than usual stock exhaust, but I?d still be looking at aftermarket options.

BMW has been doing them since at least the 2007 E70, the M Sport pack added the rectangular exhaust tips versus the standard round ones.

With the move to the dual exhaust on the X3, they've done the same. The M Sport/M Performance have rectangular while the rest still have round.
