Eisenmann Exhaust...

Trying to get opinions on exhaust options for my 2011 E90 M. Really want to know if the Eisenmann race exhaust is too loud. Anyone who's heard the sport vs Race in person let me know your thoughts.

If you're concerned about loudness and if price is a factor, then you should look into the OEM exhaust mod.

On the way back, your car travels faster than the speed of sound. Cuz I see it coming then the sound

Joking aside, damn...it sounds sooo good man!

I know sound is preference, but to me, the Eisenmann race sounds better than Akrapovic!

I have the Race. Let us know how the x pipe changes things for you. I could be tempted to go that way too.

Just took sound clips tonight of a Challenge Sport X-pipe/Eisenmann system - should have it cleaned up/uploaded by tomorrow.

Hint: It sounds awesome.

No, it's not..It's perfect, very minimal drone and loud when you want it to be..I wanted a sport version before I got the race since I got one on my e46m3 and I think it was perfect for daily driving, but when i had my race installed, i just fell in love...It is a bit loud during the cold start tho...
Talking about loud? Try Gintani Race and u will know what is loud..

Installed yesterday:



Challenge Sport X-Pipe (200cpsi cats) and Black Edition Eisenmann Race muffler/connecting pipes.







ESS E-Flash was loaded to keep the CEL from appearing due to the HFCs and round off the system.



Finished shots






Hope this helps!

Just be careful. Eisenmann Race is LOUD. VA isn't too friendly when it comes to exhaust and front plates.

That sounds ridiculous! The Black in the exhaust makes it louder! The two reasons I find not to buy this setup is the drone and loudness but until I try it I will never know.

Actually very little drone ( was surprised myself), can be way loud when hard on the hammer but still receive complements all the time.....
Force feeding it makes it all the better
