Exhaust Combinations

Hey guys,
I have a 2009 135i and have been doing plenty of research on the aftermarket exhaust I want installed on it.
I have come to love down pipe-back exhausts so like catback rather than axle back. I like the Active Autowerke signature but it is only an axle back so I was thinking of putting the Berk mid pipes in as well. Would that combination be ok?
If I don't do that than I would do the Berk full street (mid pipes and all) or the Berk full race. Any thoughts on those as well?
In general I'm looking for a deep aggressive growl at low rpm but not douche bag level at WOT.
Thanks guys!

youtube "bmw 135i exhaust" and many results come up. listen and pick. good luck and take wind/camera quality into consideration.

i personally like the berk full street but there's various preferences throughout the forum here.

Do you think you could upload a video of the sound?

I love when Justin says "deep and throaty"

Seriously though, JK's exhaust sounds really really good. Great combo!

I have been very happy with the AR catless DP's and RPI quad exhaust setup on my 135i.

In comparison, here is my old 335i that was running 3" catless DP's and the TopSpeed M2 exhaust. Some people loved the sound but I HATED it... It was way to loud and in my opinion took away from the car.



Only stayed on my car for a few weeks...

Good exhaust options.
1 - RPI
2 - Berk
3 - AA
