M235I Remus or MPE?

Hi all,

I have been looking to improve the exhaust sound on my m235i. Wanted to do a muffler delete but after reading several threads I was worried about drone all the time.

So I got a electronic cutout dump valve fitted before the muffler. The cold start is thunderous with valve open but the drone is just too much and the idling is just boomy. Not sure if the cut off valve leaks a bit because when the valve is closed the start up is now much louder but not really in a good way

I am now thinking of replacing with MPE or Remus axel back, hoping the sound will be a bit more refined, less obnoxious and fart canny. I like the deep gurgle sound on the M2 at low speeds.

How is the drone on MPE and Remus

I can only speak for the MPE, but for me it's perfect. Louder when you want it, quiet when you don't. Even with the valves fully open in sport mode, around town it is present, but not droney at all. I'm very sensitive to drone, too. Few things annoy me more than anything obnoxious exhaust.

Thanks. I am leaning towards MPE but here in UK I can get the Remus axel back for about half the price. But I might have read somewhere that the Remus drones abit.

Think about Dinan exhaust and midpipe. No drone. Sounds great. I keep the windows down in the summer, sweat my ass, off just to hear the sweet sound it makes even at highway speeds.
