So basically save your money And not bother with sports exhaust for the 40i specifically!

X4 - have just replied to you on another thread. Unfortunately, the is exactly right. I wonder if there is a way of tweaking the "M Sport Exhaust" so that it actually sounds decent, without making it loud on the motorway?

The 40i M-Sport exhaust is unusually quiet compared to what BMW did with the 50i. I know a V8TT has a lot more sound to work with but considering what BMW did with X3 M40, they could have gotten more raspy from the 40i MSport. I really am disappointed with the new full blown X3M exhaust. It sounds thin lacking any bass or low end.

My M40i sounded way better than the X3M per that video. I hope it sounds better in person
