Need your opinions on choosing an Exhaust system!

I narrowed my choices down to TWO systems.
This is for an E90 M3, and the both systems look similar..

- Meisterschaft GTS exhaust
- Gintani Sport

They are about the same price...

Which one should I go with?

if you looking to throw on a catless xpipe on in the future get the gintani sport. If not, get the meisterschaft. The meiseterschaft is a better sounding catback...I had the gt2 before my gintani sport but couldnt tolerate it when I threw on an xpipe so I swapped it out for the gintani sport.

also, gintani sounds more deep/muscle as where meisterschaft is more high pitched exotic euro.

This in my opinion, is a great way to put it. They are hard to compare without having both of them side by side, but it all depends on the 'sound' you are looking for...

^^ Like he says - if you're going to delte the primary cats or go with HFC's, get the sport exhaust. If not, get the Meister. My Eisenmann Sport with Challenge Sport pipes still isn't as loud as the Meister GT2.

As others posted, it is all preference. I had a meisterschaft GT with their SR and LX pipe. The sound was exotic and high pitched, but the muffler design was not as performance oriented (too many bends)as the gintani. I ended up making the switch to a full gintani exhaust system. It is has a deeper more solid sound and makes very good power. Just depends on what you are looking for.

Video doesn't do the Gintani justice lol. Not by a long shot. And it's funny weird how people always post other exhaust clips when they are in parking structures or somewhere where the sound is magnified.
