The BMP PE is inside a garage, thats really bad acoustics easily makes it sound different.

Nope for 125i and 128i its just muffler
For 135i it is resonator delete.

i really dont know why we get the short end of the stick.

For the same money as either you could get a custom muffler, cat delete, twin 2" from the headers into a 3" or 2.75" (bit quieter) with a res , all stainless and mandrel bent, and mop the floor with both of them -_-
I agree, custom is best.
Especially with all the used mid-pipes from 135i on sale, easy cut up job for a good shop.

The one reason i am hesitant to follow my own advice is i don't want my car to sound even CLOSE to those videos, it's what's making me contemplate a laptorr seriously
What did u think of the n55 midpipes on 125i videos. Did u think it was raspy?
