A exhaust expert over here in Germany claimed that he can change the sound to the typical V8 deep growl but the headers need to be exchanged. As a result, this would mean loosing at least 30 HP of power and some torque. This would be unacceptable for me.

BMW M GmbH didn't think this through in my opinion. They actually gave a truck a race car sound, which is ridiculous. My X5 M sounds like a tuned 4-cyl. turbo hatchback, the exhaust sound just doesn't fit the car.

Agreed. I wish it sounded like the old E53 4.6is or 4.8is.
