Challenge Exhaust

anyone have any word when their rear section will be available? i think the full exhaust or even the rear section alone has a perfect sound. will sound even better in person

The rear section is already available. I heard it last weekend. It's a bit lower then running my Eisenmann Sport with No 2nd Cats/Resonators.

On May 9, I ordered this:
1 x Challenge - Rear Section Exhaust - E92 M3 - $1,795.00
SKU: 3980
1 x Challenge - Stainless Steel X-Pipe Sports (High Flow Catalysts) - E92 M3 - $1,995.00
SKU: 3604
On May 15, I get this from the vendor:
"...I checked today with Challenge and it looks like the X-pipe and Rear Section should be available within the next 7 days."
Seven days later I get this:
"...I spoke with our rep at Challenge today and he has informed me that the Rear section should be finishing production and available by tomorrow."
So that should be May 22, right? Wrong!
On June 1, after yet another inquiry on the PAID IN FULL exhaust, I get this:
"...I just spoke with Greg at Chellenge and he has informed me that these parts are another 1.5 weeks out."
Long and short, I'm still waiting on Challenge to deliver anything! I'm pissed but my hands are tied bc this is the set up I planed from the beginning and researched AND PAID FOR! At this point, who knows when they'll deliver. But I gotta believe it will be sooner than later. Someone at Challenge has either dropped the ball, or their heads in their ass!
Oh, and, btw, try calling the main number on Challenges' website, and it's disconnected!
What a joke....

I'm waiting too for the x-pipe. Like everything else, the wait will be worth it. When I bought the RDSport sway bars, I waited like 4 weeks for them.

I installed the Challenge axle back about a week ago. It sounds incredible in my opinion. I am coming from an Eisenmann Sport paired with the Challenge Street x-pipe. I am running the stock x-pipe pipe with the new Challenge exhaust and I think it would be too loud for my taste with an aftermarket x-pipe. I will post a full review soon. Very happy so far.

I just called Challenge last Friday and got through no problem. Google GT Motoring instead of Challenge and you will reach Greg or Tim.

Am I reading this clearly, you installed the challenge axle back and replaced the challenge street x-pipe with stock x-pipe bc you thought it might be too loud? Did you run the full challenge set up?
Either way, stoked about your initial thoughts on exhaust note. Pics?

Great news, I'm getting wood thinking about it again. It's over a month and I know I'm gonna come home soon and see those big boxes sitting on my porch. My MS pulleys and stage 2 intake are collecting dust downstairs. Gonna do all mods in one shot. Do you notice any power gains?

Can't wait for the review! Hopefully you can describe how it sounds from inside the car too!
