Listen to the first video / sound clip of the BMW M Performance exhaust for the 2012 F30 335i 3 Series. Official BMW Description:

Developed using state-of-the-art CAD and FEM technology, this stainless steel exhaust system enhances the sound quality and volume of the hallmark BMW inline six-cylinder engine.
