It is no video to purposely showcase the exhaust. I was at the dealership to meet my friend and check out the new 4 series and had the opportunity to drive the owner's X3M for half an hour. Which also explains the wind noise (did have my camera with me but no deadcat)
Don't worry about him he drives a 2000 Honda Accord

-I appreciate you sharing the video with us

Are they making product for M340i at all? It's been long enough and they have come up others for M8 and X3M already.

Who puts a $5,000 exhaust on a SUV, any SUV?

Somebody who has an extra $5000 burning a hole in their pocket

If you have the means it might be considered simply retail therapy

This is THE unbiased "truth in engineering", giving full credit to BMW competitor's marketing campaign which started in 2007.

Everything we do with our cars after initial purchase is retail therapy. Acceptance will lead to more satisfying retail therapy excursions, ranging from $10 red start / stop buttons to $6500 exhausts.

God I wish aftermarket manufacturers would stop with this pops and bangs approach to the exhausts. The sound of this engine needs to be "released" not covered up with crappy childish bangs.

That's mostly the tune actually

Free flowing exhaust just exposes it more
