If you had the stock exhaust on there before, that is the norm as far as I am concerned. I finally gave up on mine after the fourth repair and crack. It was a big mistake for BMW to make that one piece. I really like the stock exhaust for looks and quiet. I've put a Remus system on since and even with the "quiet" muffler it is louder than I like.
