What to pair with M Performance exhaust?

I just purchased my BMW M3 F 80 and Iím going to redo the exhaust. Iíve spent countless hours looking into the best set up. I have decided on the M performance, but I see a lot of people suggesting different down pipes with it. Just wondering if anybody had any suggestions on what to pair with the M performance exhaust.

Also anyone selling a MPE exhaust

Keep stock mid pipe and weld in some resonators. Most people delete secondary cats to place them there. Will run you ~$350 with install. Don't overpay for a lesser solution.

I have the M Performance exhaust on my M4 Competition. I was planning to do the VRSF DPs, but I have four years warranty remaining and was told this would void the warranty. Something to consider if yours is still covered.

I would say it depends on tune and warranty. If you're going stock or maybe Bootmod3 stage1 or 2 there is no need to do anything. Personally i feel that the MPE is more than loud enough as it is. Louder isn't always better.

I love my AA midpipe to MPE. I now have VRSF downpipes as well. It sounds amazing! Here's a picture of fitment I will try to figure out how to post a video off my setup.

Castless downpipes help make power - but ruin the sound of the car imo

Start with the exhaust only then decide if you want more sound.

You have 3 different options catless (aggressive, All brands sound the same), catless with resonators (AR Design, good balance) and catted which offer a very mild increase over stock

I have the mpe exhaust and AA midpipe and i can tell you its very loud with the flap open. It will burble a little bit but when you wind it up it sounds like a shotgun going off. I personally think the mpe exhaust by itself if more than enough but im obnoxious so more is more. Also if your running any burble tune it triples the "jerk-o-meter" lol.
Basically every time i deaccelerate it sounds like a anti aircraft gun going off.

I have to be careful because theres well known smokey traps near my house and on more than one occasion, ive caught them giving me hard looks. So despite spending all that money, i usually end up driving around in efficent.

We have the AA midpipe with REMUS axle back and in my opinion it offers the perfect balance. Very mild when valves are closed, loud when they are open with no drone.

Agreed. With the valves closed and in efficent it is quiet doesnt have any drone but just a tad more vibration (which i enjoy) since the steering has ZERO feedback.

My car came with a Dinan free flow exhaust, love the sound and performance. But I don't see myself shelling out $4k for an exhaust . Just bolt on somenresonated tips and good to go.
