My friend has a Eisenmann Race, but both of my friend and i think my Borla ATAK is better than his Eisenmann. I love my Borla, and you could tell when you are in front of my exhaust.
You may also ask Harold from the HP Autoweks. He installed my exhaust and my friend's exhaust.

About an hour.
Since you have first hand experience with both, can you say more about why you like the atak more compared to the eisenmann? I'd be really interested to know.

I couldn't live with the E. Race due to the drone. The Borla Atak I could've lived with, it doesn't drone. The E. Race sounds a tad more aggressive, the Atak is smoother sounding...similiar to an AA Signature.

There is a lot more volume with the ATAK over the Eisenmann Race, the sound of the ATAK is more throaty if that is your kind of thing. ATAK also drones and weighs less.

I'd rather have a bit more throaty than drone, I hate drone! Can you PM me an offer for an ATAK system for a 2012 E92 M3?

Are there any weight savings with the Borla ATAK? or does it weigh same as stock?

The Borla is substantially lighter, but we didn't weigh it. I can try to find out from Borla.
