Having said that, never give up on BMW or the aftermarket.
No. My I-6 engine has a turbocharger on it and sounds fantastic. This engine, regardless of forced induction, sounds like a '90s GM V-6, which is maybe the second least desirable engine note next to a Honda 4-banger. I'm sure the new M3 will be a stunner, but BMW will have their work cut out for them in the exhaust note category.
