Default M2 Exhaust mod & Resonator delete

Been thinking about getting the PCW exhaust mod and resonator delete, just wondered if anybody has had it done and would they recommend it.

Canít justify 2.5k on MPE and the only videos on YouTube are American. The ones i have seen on pcw Facebook page are difficult to tell how much improvement it makes.

What is the nature of the improvement you’re looking for?

Just a bit louder I guess, it has a nice tone as standard but I think it could do with some more decibels.

How much is the PWC mod?

The MPE is a rip off although it does look fantastic.

PCW also do the Carbon tips which look like the MPE ones. Just want to know if anyone on here has had it done to their M2, I know all the m3/4 guys on here would give the thumbs up !

I've done the MPE exhaust swap on my pre LCI M2 and can say it's very different.

The standard exhaust has valves like the MPE but has a much sweeter note at high revs when open (sport+).

The MPE is just monstrously loud and has much more base at low revs. Would you like a vid?

It might be approaching "expensive territory" now days but i got mine early in 2017 fitted with carbon tips for under £2K, and I consider that an absolute bargain!

Great, get the vids up when it's done.

I'm seriously thinking about finding a used stock exhaust...

I think dealers just chuck them away - they chucked out M140i exhaust away.

Yes please if you have a YouTube video, no bother if you donít, would be good to compare standard exhaust, MPE and PCW mod exhaust !

Cool look forward to that, i guess no one on here has the PCW mod so I might be the guinea pig !! I will do a before and after video and if you put yours on, it will be good to compare all three !!
