How can I tell which Eisenmann exhaust is on the car?

Im looking at a 09 M3 that is at a BMW dealership and it has an Eisenmann exhaust on it. How can I tell by looking at it if its the Sport or Race?

Is it the Space Grey in Winston??

There should be a small plate welded onto the cans underneath the car. Should say RACE or have an R somewhere......

Yea thats a nice looking one with a few mods already on it. I tried to get them to sell me the exhaust only but they declined. Luckily I found a Race on here soon after. It has been sitting there for a few months so you should have some leverage negotiating. Good luck.


**** Also want to add that the aftermarket wheels are cheaper than the OEM wheels as far as BMW prices go. I think the rear diffuser looks like crap too. I would use those as negatives when negotiating.

Thanks for that info man. I'll definetly use it.

I plan on selling those wheels. I think Im going with some 20" BBS LM-Rs

Since you tried to buy that exhaust from them. Do you know if its a Race or Sport?

I didnt check to be honest I was going to just go up there and turn the car on to see. I live only 20 min away from that dealership. If you cant find the plate on the exhaust or want to compare it to mine to make sure just let me know.
