Ah yes, I've seen this one. It's always nice to hear it from different recordings though. I love how it's a little throatier than the on the N54. It'll definitely be one of my first purchases when I finally get my car.

Thank you for posting that. I think it sounds absolutely epic, especially on the overrun.

But the question is, was that the Perf. Exhaust meant for the N54, or a new one meant for the N55? (I'll send that person a message when I get home, just wondering if you knew)

It's a carry-over. The N55 335i sedans do not need a mid-pipe, but they'll come with one regardless.

135i stays the same.

i agree, i'm not feeling that video, but it could just be the way the n55 video was taken. we need a video like this to compare

Well... you could always just install the PE rear muffler (only the damper/can) first and then see/hear how it sounds.

You don't HAVE to install the center section. I have been thinking of doing just that on my N54 135i. I want a louder exhaist than stock but not as loud and grumbling as the full PE is. I think it would also be a real simple install for the DIY-er in my garage.

Is it just me or for whatever reason, the 135i just never sounds as good as 335i. Like more muted or something.

Different strokes for different folks...My 335 N54 sounds nice but I greatly prefer the 135 N55 sound by a wide margin. In these videos I like the throatier, more gurgling growl while the N54 sounds great, as well, with it's cleaner more metallic sound. It's just one of those things...subjective to the core.
