Garage List
2004 BMW M3  [4.50]
2011 BMW E90 M3  [5.00]
2013 BMW 328i  [5.00]
I like the metallic/higher pitched sound vrs the deep, bassy sound of most aftermarket exhausts.

Great work!

really interested in this mod, the only problem would be the actual shipping of my exhaust to you guys. Will you be having original mufflers with the mod done for sale so i could retain my stock one? Thanks

Yes, we offer a core deposit so you can keep your OEM instead of sending back

First off this sounds GREAT! I love the sound and it is definitely what I'm looking for!

...this might be a stupid question but why not just cut the exhaust before the muffler, have some straight pipe welded on and have some tips to cap it? essentially remove the whole muffler to save weight, get the same sound, etc.

I assume to keep the "stock" look and retain the hangers?

It is essentially the same thing. The only benefit I see is the ability to retain the OEM look; however, the OE muffler is heavy so I would def want to ditch it altogether. I actually just cut the muffler right before the can and welded on two straight sections of pipe with new tips and I can't believe how good it sounds. Def a little loud, but manageable considering there is 4 cats and 2 resonators. I have to get some pics/sound clips up.

My understanding is that doing this would get rid of the helmholtz chamber and lead to a lot of drone. I'm not an expert and just restating what I've read elsewhere. Btw, I also did the ACM exhaust mod and it sounds unbelievable. Definitely gives more of that angry V8 growl and sounds great when you open up the throttle on the highway. I didn't want something obnoxious and this is a good balance. Sounds even better in person than in the videos.

I can't believe how good it sounds in person! Still being oem and cheaper than any exhaust out there are huge pluses too. I wish playing doctor with an E46 exhaust would have worked If I had an E9x this would be my first mod no doubt.

Picked up my car from the dealer on Friday, had this exhaust installed an hour later (had one built before I took delivery). I will say, the exhaust makes this car sounds so much better. IMHO, the car should have come with this exhaust. Great work guys!!!!

I'm new to the forum (been trolling for a few months) but I recently got this MOD done up at ACM, along with RD springs. My car sounds and looks great! Next on the list...TEST PIPES.

Can you guys PM me a price to Flash the ECU so there's no check engine light after my test pipe install? Also...a price for the test pipe install. Thanks guys

Just get a challenge Xpipe,they make different setups from straight pipe mid section to a street setup that allows you to use you stock primary cats.

Good Luck !

question: Would the reduction in back pressure cause a loss of power?

I've read over and over again about how straight pipes are stupid due to the loss of power, etc. and was curious if this mod would fall under a similar category, or if keeping the cats, etc, will not cause a large reduction in backpressure.
