M Performance Exhaust vs Eisenmann Race

I recently had M Performance Exhaust installed, and kind of think it might be a bit quiet but I am not sure since I never heard it from the outside. My next choice will be Eisenmann Race since it was the exhaust I wanted before the M Performance came out. Anyone had experience and/or heard both of them? Let me know what you guys think about both of them!

I was on the fence between the Eisenmann Race and M Performance. I went with the M Performance and really like it. It's such a classy exhaust, looks great, louder than stock and with a great tone. It really suits the M3 but... I just wish it had a little more volume also. So, I've got an Eisenmann Race sitting in my garage waiting. In a week I'll be able to tell you what I think.

At first I thought the volume of my Eisenmann Race was perfect, but then I noticed that at higher RPM's, the engine noise overpowered the exhaust and I couldn't hear it from the inside. Now I added the turner test pipes and the sound is perfect from the inside, but has more drone. If you are not sensitive to drone, go with the Eisenmann race...The drone never bothered me.

The M Performance Exhaust sound amazing, not too loud. I'd go with that

If you want to sell your M performance for half the cost, let me know . Let us know your impressions. Are you talking about the Eisenmann inconel or the regular one? Should sound the same though. And if I were you, I'd paint the cans black on either one before installation . Good luck.

I did paint the cans on my M Performance, made a huge difference visually. The Eisenmann cans won't bother me. I've got the SS exhaust, the Inconel goes for $7-8K! Nein danke!

I have Eisenmann race and I've also heard the M performance in person. The sound to me is night and day difference, Eisenmann is much louder. It does drone at 2k, and a bit at 3k, but I got use to it.
