Cat back exhaust options

Hi everyone looking to get a cat back for my 540i, haven't had opportunity to hear any in person but watched few online videos but its really not that representative since all of them sound the same to me.
Anyway if i could get some info whats loud and whats tame (from reading online armytrix is loud while m performance is very tame and dinan in between).

Opened to recommendations.
Thanks.

Check out the REMUS exhaust, it got a perfect balance in my opinion and zero drone

Can vouch for Remus too. I've had it for over 10k miles and 6 months with zero issues on my 540i xDrive. I deleted the center resonator too. Zero drone in comfort at highway speeds. Flip it into sport mode and all hell breaks loose! B58 sounds amazing

Seems like its the best option i just have to find a local shop that can install it (hopefully the same place that sells it) since i read that it requires cutting the original exhaust.

Any mechanic can install it, no need to get it from the same place its installed at. Local shops prices are going to be more expensive than getting the exhaust from a distributor like us
