Considering New Exhaust, Any Suggestions?

So I'll be changing out my clutch in the next week or two, I know I need to remove the exhaust to do so, was considering upgrading my stock exhaust while I'm at it.

Wondering if anyone has any suggestions for an exhaust they've really liked. I'd like to get a little more growl out of it, but I don't want to be getting pulled over for noise violations either

Suggestions?

I love my exhaust. Not over excessively loud, but just right.

A lot of people I know call the muffler the exhaust. So are you talking just the muffler or the actual exhaust?

IF you are looking for all new piping I would go custom, it will be much cheaper than buying a brand name kit. Just pick your own muffler and cat.

Was looking into the various cat-back systems, but I may look into this as well.
Primary benefit of the cat-back being I can install it myself after I get the clutch in, no need to bring it in somewhere.

btw you are likely looking at new exhaust studs and nuts at the headers. You will not enjoy the sticker shock

I've had two different aftermarket exhausts and have now settled with the OEM M3 muffler.

Aftermarket mufflers just sound silly to me now.
