Thumbs up x5 3.0 sounding good

One pulled up where i work. thing sounded like a beast with the 6 cylinder engine. i have been in the v8, but it didnt sound this good. Maybe it was aftermarket exhaust or possibly headers? but whatever had been done, if anything, sounded sweet. anyone else notice this?

aftermarket exhaust and headers can either make a car or ruin it...

BMW's have an awsome sound with the OEM exaust. The 4.8 x5's sound ridicilous compaired to any of the other engines.
