Hey Karan,

That sounds fantastic. Definitely as you mentioned the car deserves the sound and kudos to you for making a short yet informative and detailed video. The 328i is an amazing machine and now it sounds the part as well with the exhaust. Keep Revving.

Fabulous review !

Well spoken & some great camera work. Very creative, who was shooting? Loved the power slide , the classroom session and the frank opinion (i.e. it's more about the sound than any performance increase).

The 328i has such a sweet engine - it always deserved to sound better. Be warned: Once you drive a car with a sporty sounding exhaust, there's no going back. After my Civic & City Vtec, I don't think I can ever own a petrol without a free-flow exhaust.

What was the cost of this upgrade?

Thats quite inspiring. I a just curious to know whether these add ONs are approved by the RTO. I might sound silly but can you get pulled up by the local authorities for creating nuisance with these noisy exhausts.

Cheers

Awesome Karan !

Loved the sound and the camera work. Even I am eager to know about the costs. Thanks for educating on the different exhaust systems. You are giving Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May a toughie !

Good video review, mate. You have put good effort into making it . Hope the video get the views it deserves. And please add tag words like 'BMW', 'Mpower', etc to the video, if you haven't done it.

Thanks a lot GTO, appreciate your positive comments

The video was shot and edited by my younger brother.

I agree after getting used to these amazing sounding exhausts it is truly difficult to move around in silent refined petrol engined cars.

I ordered this exhaust from the US & the cost was aprox 850 U$ (51k INR) + shipping (14k INR) + Duty (16k INR), Total = 81,000 INR

I haven't messed with the catalytic converter so the emissions are in check. Regarding the sound as i mentioned in this video that no one is going to look at me and say "Hey he is driving like a maniac", so what i mean is the exhaust is pretty sporty in a subtle way.

Awesome review there!
Loved the power slide in the end. You should approach car news channels to do reviews, you were that good. Due credit to your brother too for the editing work. He's got talent !
Now waiting for a video review of the Injen intake system and may be even a OTR video of the Fortuners(I'll help you with that &#128540.

Nice way to spend 81,000INR bro. Loved the sweet cracker-like sound while downshifting.

An //M Performance body kit should complete the work.

Happy motoring!!

And since then you have been cribbing about how your Supersports are almost worn out.

Thanks Akshay

Well yes ive been cribbing about tyres majorly because i cant do the tyre rotation as im running a staggered setup hence the next switch (2-3 months from now) il opt a square setup.

Excellent review Karan Well deserved 5 stars.

The exhaust and your adrenaline rush will definitely compliment each other if you are on a expressway. Hope you have done that already.

PS: Do we get an opportunity to watch the video of burning rubber on your wedding day?
