640d Exhaust Upgrade options?

Hi there fellow 6 owners

I'm getting my hands on a brand new 640d in December (Alpine white w/cinnamon leather) and wanted some advice regarding exhaust upgrade options.

Now i know the exhaust doesn't sound bad considering it's a diesel, but I can't help thinking i would prefer it to have a note similar to that of the SQ5 - i see a few round my way and they sound very nice when going past.

Apart from the 2k+ options (e.g. AC Schnitzer, Supersprint), are there any more affordable alternatives?

Any advice is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Interested to see what other options we have. I have seen active sound upgrades, literally a speaker behind the exhaust i think? Sounds awesome but definitely a no go for me.

Take a look at this thread from last year. The guy uploaded a video of his setup so you can listen for yourself

He used one of these kits

It's called active sound but with that sound box welded to the exhaust, it will be giving off some throaty outside noise, not just piping some nice engine noise through your speakers
