Me too. People said it drones but for my vehicle it doesnt. Its very nice and quiet. Cold starts can be a little "drony" and loud but after 20 sec it calms down. If you really have your foot down then yes i admit it will drone a little but on regular comfort driving you wont even realize its there. Best choice ive ever made. Even tho it's expensive its the way i wanted to go since its OEM. People say hey you couldve bought this that but i prefer clean and nice sound

I have no idea about aftermarket exhausts etc but simply wanted an exhaust that vented from both sides. I didn't realize when I bought the car that the stock exhaust didn't and Only noticed when the wife drove off and fumes from left side only! Also it is clearly dirty one side and not the other which drives me mad.
I Asked the dealers service manager and he told me the mppsk would provide the mpe which vented both sides so I went for the oem option like you ... thanks for the info..

No drone at allll. Sounds exactly the same as before. I removed the spring opened the valve and put thr spring back so it holds the flap. The motor still works at high rpm so it doesnt throw me any codes

Have never been a fan of odd shaped exhaust tips (got rid of mine as soon as I got my car home) but I like that they put the little center bits to break up the big opening.

Is the diffuser required for the mpe on the SportLine level? I do not see how it would fit with existing bumper, since current bumper and diffuser seem to be molded together. May use my welcome coupon of 20% off up to $150 for this accessory.

I'm wondering the same thing. I have a 540xi Msport package and wonder if I need a new diffuser if I get the MPE?

Yes. You will need the lower bumper trim. Which is standard on "m550" since it has the almost same exhaust as m performance one. (Square exhaust tips" it cost me $89 from dealer just pooped mine out and installed the m550 bottom piece.

My level is the SportLine - do not see the lower bumper trim you speak of.
