I am thinking about buying a Dinan exhaust for my 330ci. Just wondering what opinions you guys have. If anyone has it installed, tell me what you think. I am also looking for some videos with good sound quality. Thanks a lot!

An exhaust is a waste of $, trust me I got one its just for sound unless you have headers.

Dinan is really quite not really noticeable compared to stock , I would recommend a muffler delete for a very nice sounding exhaust. No drone , and at full throttle amazing. It's only $60-$100 bucks at a muffler shop :thumpsup:

Yeah stock doesn't really sound bad. If there is no drone that would be good. Thats what I would be worried about. I don't want it to sound more like a "muscle" car. haha

Ya 330i counts. Same engine! Thats what i'm looking for. Something that sounds really nice without being obnoxious. Have any videos of the exhuast?
Only video I have is it from a cold start with the rear sticking out of a garage. Make sure you watch it with something that can reproduce the low end otherwise it'll sound like a honda. I have plans on making a proper video but I just haven't found a good place to do it yet.

Wow it really makes a difference playing it on something with good bass. Sounds really good. Probably just gonna see if there's gonna be a BMW meet soon around my area and go check out what it sounds like in person.

Mine came with it when I bought the car. It has a nice sound at idle and it's a little louder and deeper than stock without being obnoxious. I love it and wouldn't want it any louder. I'l try to post a video when I get a chance.
