I was stopped at a traffic light where I saw a 330i (that someone was test driving) take off down the road. It sounded very nice and nothing at all like the 328 (which was disappointing). Do those changes only have to do with the exhaust system? Also how do you compare the exhaust note of the IS300 to that of the BMW 330i?

Yes, remember me mentioning the test drive I took in the 330i?
I too noticed the "Heavy Rumble" from the Exaust. (Its also VERY noticible Inside the car. (Z28..5.0...Trans Am...)
I personally like the Turbine Smooth Sound of the IS300.

Yeah I have yet to hear a 330i running hard while sitting inside. If it does sound that loud (Z28 like) then I think that's too much for such a polished car. Personally I prefer the engine/exhaust note of my friend's stock Audi S4. It sounds very nice inside and out.
