Question Rpi gtc exhaust vs eisenmann race exhaust

I currently have the eisenmann race exhaust installed on my e92. I have had it for about 3 years, but have grown really tired of the drone. its pretty loud, and the sound is a very low pitch. I was thinking of swapping it out with the rpi gtc.

anyone have any opinions? anyone listen to both?

If the drone is the issue, I've heard RPi's exhaust drones like crazy. I love my Active Autowerke exhaust. Very unique low growl/high pitch exotic sound and barely any drone!

If drone is the problem, you might want to consider the OEM exhaust mod. It doesn't drone, but it might not be as loud as your current one. I just got the mod and I absolutely love it.

The rpi gtm which is full catless I heard drones too. Op is talking about gtc which is a quieter muffler with the same xpipe as the gtm. I think rpi claims less drone or none at all with the gtc. The whole point was to tone the gtm down with the gtc muffler

I've heard the Eisenmann and Meisterschaft GT/GT2 both in person but haven't heard an RPI GTC yet. Even though we carry both I honestly prefer the sound of the Meisterschaft in person since it makes the car sound more exotic than the Eisenmann.

the GTC has much less drone compared to the GTM. in general the GTC is about 30% quieter than the GTM.

I checked out the youtube clips, the meisterschaft sounded the best IMO. Is there a bad interior drone like the eisenmann?
