Default Best sounding 335 exhaust? - 10-21-2015, 08:27 PM

Hey everyone,

Ive had a Corsa catback exhaust/VRSF down ***** for about 4 months now and I loved how my car sounded up until about a month ago when my exhaust started to sound too quiet. I think that its just because I got used to the sound but I don't know for sure. Anyways, I was wondering if theres a way to modify my exhaust to make it sound louder? If thats not an option then I was wondering what exhaust set up you guys would reccomend that sounds great, is loud, and doesn't have too much drone.

Thanks for the help,
Nick

My last fun car was a Mk4 R32, hate or love VW's it is almost always included in a "Best sounding Exhaust" list. I loved the sound that car made, it would give me goosebumps.

When I bought the 335 I was worried, anytime I heard an E46 M3 with an exhaust I just cringed, still do :X

After tons of research I ended up with the BMW PE and a set of ******* DP's. Not quite the R32 but I actually get more compliments on this car (guessing because it's a bit louder than the R32). It's loud enough to enjoy, has a great sound, snap, crackles and pops on deceleration and doesn't piss of the neighbors.

The sound of the 3.2 VR6 is pure sex.

If I would to do this again. I would go with the OEM Performance Exhaust and dec@t the rest of the system.

Otherwise, AE, which is what I have, sounds pretty good, especially at higher rpm. But at idle, it sounds little too boomy at idle and drones at bit at 1700-1800rpms, which I am unfortunately very sensitive to.

Ive decided that im either gonna go with the remus race exhaust or the BMW PE and keep the 3.5 inch tubing from my Corsa catback system. Still having a tough time deciding between the two and don't want to make another mistake of choosing an exhaust that i'm not completely satisfied with.

Go single turbo and then single pipe all the way back. Done.

it's all preference . My experience with different exhaust setups for a E92 MT.

Oem *****s + PE Mod sounded the best . No rasp , no drone , nice pops on decel. Great for DD driving

VRSF ********* + PE mod was louder , but it introduced a nasty rasp around 4K rpms that I didn't like at all. This was also with the stock mid cats in place . Did a lot of research on vibrant resonators to replace the mid cats and it was a crap shoot. Some had success while others said it did nothing . Most people that had success getting rid of rasp were AT. While others that said it didn't do squat had a MT.

VRSF ********* + CPE catback comes with straight midpipes with no resonators . . Way louder than PE mod but also way louder rasp . Hated it.

CPE catted + CPE catback is what I finally settled up on. Way louder than PE mod , and hardly any rasp and a nice deep tone . Being catted seemes to do the trick to getting rid of the horrid rasp . I just can't deal with that ricer sound on a BMW.

I got the most compliments when I had the BMW PE Exhaust and my secondary cats. Sounded great, lots of pops and gurgles on decel, had a nice pitch up top.

I removed my secondaries, and it sounded like 1000 midgets ripping ass into a kazoo. I lasted all of 14 miles driving it like that and threw on my oem (unmodified) mufflers, and it helped, but it still sounded like like pure b hole.

- I have sense sold the PE axel back and now have the Cobb exhaust- sounds pretty good, more attractive for the weight savings.

- I still debate about just buying another PE : /

This is a subjective question so you won't get a "right" answer from anyone because it's all about personal preference.

I ended up with this setup and enjoy it immensely:
*AR ********* ***
*Supersprint Section 1 Race (no secondary kitties)
*Supersprint Section 2 Race (x-pipe with no resonators)
*Eisenmann Race V1 w/ 2x90mm tips

Because you can't get the Eisenmann Race version 1 anymore and people say the new race sounds like the old sport version, this will be the setup that stays on the car unless I part it out, in which case the stock exhaust will go back on. Oh one thing...I get a crap ton of drone but that's ok because idgaf and it helps put my 3 month old to sleep instantly. Lol!
