Aftermarket catback exhaust near Boston?

I'm thinking of swapping out the OEM muffler for something with a little more volume but want to make sure it's not too loud that it attracts law enforcement officials and that any drone is bearable.

I had been considering RPi, but that may be too loud for my taste. Right now leaning towards an Eisenmann Race, but want to hear some of them in person before making a decision.

Does anyone in the area have an M Roadster or M Coupe with an aftermarket exhaust that I can hear in person to calibrate my expectations? I can drive out to meet you.

Thanks!

I have the RPI setup, I like the sound, it is not really unbearable at cruising speeds, it is most noticeable (loudest) with a load such as going up a hill.

I'd love to hear your setup in person sometime. I really want to get RPI but am just nervous that it's too loud. Where in MA are you?

I am from Hartford, CT area and have Supersprint Race with X-pipe. However, the Z4MC is shibernating in the garage until spring time. Maybe we could meet up sometime then

I live in Fitchburg, at the moment I have the car up on jack stands in my garage, detailing and doing some minor repairs getting it ready for spring.
Are you in a rush? I still want to paint the calipers and put my new rims and tires on.

I probably won't pull the trigger until the summer, so Shota and Pheonix, whenever you guys take your cars out, I'd love to have a listen at those exhausts. No rush tho. Thanks in advance!
