I went from an AA exhaust to a Tri-Flo loud and I was not prepared for the change in sound in anyway. I don't know if I got an unusually loud Tri-Flo or what, but it was so loud and so bassy and boomie with so much resonance that it was giving me chronic headaches. I've had some loud exhausts in the past but nothing prepared me for my m3 with the Tri-Flo. It was a fine line between loving it and hating it. Most of the time I was starting to hate it to be honest. I then got some baffles from B&B put in and it changed my whole opinion on it. It really cleaned up the raspiness, made it sound more throaty, and got rid of most of the resonance (that was giving me headaches). I dare say this is one of the best sounding M3's I've heard now. It's very deep, throaty, and says you mean business. I highly recommend the baffles. I just LOVE the sound it has now... before, I wasn't so sure. Now it's a perfect blend for me, where as the AA was too quiet, and the Tri-Flo without the baffles was too loud. Regardless it comes down to presonal tastes, and what you like. What might be too loud for me, might not be too loud for you. YMMV.


Hey
I bought a Triflo "loud" DTM exhaust and I had a few questions. I heard a triflo once and it wasnt as bad as I anticipated. Can someone tell me how "livable" it is? I have the approach that I DO want the car to be louder so Im not gonna bitch. Im just curious how loud it is in the cabin when cruising. It seems alot of people have this exhaust and are pleased with it thus far.

My main question is about the DTM tips. I have seen on other cars with DTM tips that it leaves a filmy carbon residue on the bumper. Is this so with the triflo on the M3? If it is, I may consider getting new tips. Any idea where I can just see what other styles there are out there?

All your help is appreciated, thanks again- Im off to go party this lovely friday night =D

Jonathan
