there are hundreds of different makes and models of resonators shops can put in. Many are not that expensive, either. One, for example, is Magnaflows magnapack resonators. straight through, perforated, lfetime warranty. not "cheaping down" or "dressing up" anything really. So is the same mindset go for cheap honda drivers who sepnt 500 on their car and spend 10k on a full race turbo kit, exhaust, and fully buit motors? lol.
Everyone has different outlook on what their cost/benefit ratio is. Not everyone cares to just waste money on something that wont do much and something no one will ever see. to each their own. we all cant follow the norm otherwise all of our cars would like and sound the same.
Point taken... a cheaper option would be N55 mids. The noise of the MD mids is just what I wanted, small performance gain, no cosmetic enhancement as they have an OEM look. My BMW SA was looking for issues when I took my car in for 2k service and they picked up non-BMW oil filter and magnetic sump plug, but failed to pick up on the MD's
