idk from what I have researched (and heard in person) neither of which will give you any serious gains (considering the factory bmw exhaust is pretty beastly to say the least). It will all boil down to the ton you want, the BMWPE is significantly more aggressive than stock however its still not too loud or intrusive and NO DRONE

Disagree, there's slight drone but it's not cabin rattling drone and it always hits at the right spot on the rpm range. Other exhausts that drone will come on during idle/cruise, but get quiet when you get on the gas, that's the worst type. There's drone, but it's it's the type you want!

Well, just ordered a PE, so that gets my vote! Bought it for the sound, I know HP gains will be non existent.

Would get the BMW PE. Factory fitment, top quality, and sounds awesome.

I have a feeling this is going to be more of a coin flip type of decision based on the crowds preferences lol

I gotchya, I was comparing it to the "folgers" styled exhausts you see on well...you get my drift LOL. But hey to the OP either of which is a pretty decent choice from what I have read Id lean towards tone if anything
