Great detailed review and writeup from a F30 335i owner on his M Performance Power Kit and Exhaust fitted 335i:
I wanted to create an M Performance thread focused on the 8AT, since the existing reviews seem mostly 6MT centric.

Check out Road & Track’s recent review of five V8 supercars in disguise. Each features supercar perfromance, raucous V8 engines and four doors.
Highlights regarding the F10 M5:
The Audi’s V8 sounds more cumulonimbus than Days of Thunder, and once up to banked-oval speeds, we’re surprised to see the M5 scream past it. The BMW’s twin-turbo V8 sounds nothing like any of the others; the Bavarians’ ingenious, patented crossover exhaust manifold gives each exhaust pipe an evenly spaced pulse of air, so the wail coming from … CONTINUED

The lucky folks over at Motor Trend get a chance to drive the upcoming X5 eDrive plug in, follow the link to their full article, but here are some select quotes:
