BMW Performance Exhaust 24b/96khz Sound Clips

Hey guys,

I'm working on a game trailer for project Cars (video game) and have been doing a bit of recording to get some sound effects. I hooked up a Zoom H1 mic that records 24bit/96khz wav to a suction cup mount and put it on the rear bumper and recorded some clips.




Nevermind the slideshow, if anyone was on the fence of getting the performance exhaust maybe this helps.

Cheers

sounds amazing! Whats the sound inside the car like? How about cruising at 75-80 mph? I don't want to cook my ears on a long trip...

While I think about it... I have quite a lot of recordings of the performance exhaust in high quality too! Here's one that I published online as part of my road trip journal. Disregard the background music and go directly to 2m51s!

That sounds pretty darn good! However, I prefer my N54 with performance exhaust. I do like the "raw" sounds of the N55 but the N54 has a more "exotic" note IMO.

the performance exhaust is AMAZING. sounds so raw and snorty all the time.

here's a low-budget video i made of a cold start and a bit of revving.....just to capture the 'popping'. The best way to wake up!!!!!

i still can't believe BMW sold a car with such a raucous exhaust out of the showroom....pretty great!

great videos guys!

IEDEI thats awesome, it sounds great. I'm not getting as much popping/crackling as you. Am I doing it wrong!? Is it down to different engine management software since you have the ppk etc? Can't think of too many other differences.

Might be due to the PPK2 that IEDEI has, not sure if you have it or not, but supposedly it adds more "burbles," pops, and cracks.

I think you're right. According to the BMW: "The Version 2 Power Kit also adds a very sporty exhaust burbling noise during engine overrun conditions". I love it!

It sounds great!

PPK1+PE is great. The burble sets off car alarms in my parking structure.

Doesn't the exhaust tips stick out too far on the stock rear diffuser?
I have the sport package but, I think I read that the tips still stick out too far.

I was lucky enough the try my car stock, then with the PE, then a week later added the PPK2.

Almost all the popping noise when letting off the accelerator came from adding the PPK2. If you look in the brochure for it, they mention "added burble". Adding the exhaust made no difference in the amount of burble, just made it a little louder.

I get to try it every day on the ramps down to my parking spot in my parking garage. Before the PPK2, I would get one "burble" each time I left off the gas. After adding the PPK2, I now get "burble burble burble burble burble burble" Love it! When cruising along at low speeds, I find myself getting off and on the gas constantly just to hear it.

You guys are making me want to get the PPK2!!!

Now it makes sense why I don't get much burbles when letting off the throttle...

Very Cool, makes me want to get the ppk2, but im scared at the price... I don't even want to imagine what they will charge for parts and install. I remenmber the dealer quoting the ppk1 for me at over $1500
