New exhaust smell

Hey there exhaust experts, I recently purchased and had installed a brand new Eisenmann exhaust and noticed that the break-in smell is pretty strong. I was wondering how long it takes for the smell to go away? I am assuming about 1 week for break-in and then smell should slowly start going away, but I am not sure.

Thanks everyone

Usually about 2-3 days depending on how much you drive it's only bad the first day really IMO

I got the BMW Performance Exhaust for my 135i and OMG, I thought the smell was going to kill me at times. Unlike the BMW M Performance Exhaust on my M3 that had little smell to it.
