Thanks! no performance mods as yet as I do not want to mess up warranty...still waiting for BMW to announce an ECU upgrade like they did for 3 series..

I have done some small mods like carbon fiber spoiler, retrofit camera, led DRLs and trunk shave

Are the tips made to stick out like this or you had it installed like that?

I was all over youtube searching for F10 exhausts and was surprised as there are almost no videos of the M performance exhaust installed on F10. I have kept E60 M5 and ML63 AMG and was never fond of non M or AMG drivers having race exhausts so for my 535i I was looking for something that would sound sporty but not extremely loud.

The M performance exhaust has a perfect deep tone which increases with the rpm. The exhaust pops and burbles when you rev and shift with a deep bassy tone. You will notice some noise inside the cabin when the car is cold and when you are driving in Normal/Comfort mode. When the car is warmed up or when you are driving in Sport mode, there is no cabin noise at all.

I initially planned that if I'll find the M performance exhaust to be too quiet then I will either remove cats or replace it but so far I am extremely satisfied with it. I was told by the dealer that the exhaust needs a break-in period and will get deeper after sometime. There was a 640i getting AC Schnitzer exhaust installed at the dealer and I found it to be too loud and no bass at all.

If you want quality exhaust sound with deep bass then you cannot go wrong with the M performance exhaust.

I requested the dealer to stick out the tips like this initially but since the tips are only secured using a single screw, sticking them out created alignment issues. I took the car to the dealer again and now the tips are aligned and not sticking out too much.
