Question Eisenman Exhaust on M3 DCT Sedan AND Warranty

I eagerly await my M3 DCT (enroute) in Silverstone Metallic. I've read the manual through and cannot wait to get my hands on the beauty.

I'm going to change out the steering wheel for the performance steering wheel as I think it looks a lot cooler/performance.

I heard the sound of the Eisenman exhaust system and am very interested
in putting it on the car. I'm wondering whether this will change any of the
warranty practices on the car as offered by BMW. Could someone please
throw more light on this warranty issue and also please educate me as to
what the Eisenman system will do to the sedan?

I'm a newcomer to the M3 world, so please be kind.

Thank You.

BMW does not void your warranty as long as it's a catback system.

ihyln is correct. Our system will not affect the warranty at all. Eisenmann's E90/92 system does not bypass any primary, secondary cats or resonators. We have a local BMW dealership that has installed this system in house many times.

Good luck with the new ///M DCT!

Is this true for Europe too?
I have askd at me dealer and they told me about voiding ALL warranty by changing exhaust system... I don't think so, I'll try to ask another dealer.

Greetings aLV,

We have a vast dealer network. Shot me a pm or give us a call and I can point you in the right direction We have a few Race performances in stock the Sport performance was sold out the second it hit US soil. This might be one of the best sounding systems Eisenmann has ever released.

This is absolutely for sure guys? It will not void my warranty? I am waiting for my local BMW to confirm this. Any more info I can get and pass them would be great.

Make sure that your dealership knows that the Eisenmann system does not bypass any catalytic converters or resonators. It simply bypasses the rear muffler. Also if you check our Eisenmann dealer list you will find that we have two OEM dealers listed both have installed Eisenmann systems many times.

Thanks for the info Nate. I made sure I mentioned to them, the exhaust does not bypass any primary, secondary cats or resonators. The two BMW dealers will definitely help. Those guys are mess up if they say it will void my warranty.

Vaya, era una broma, ya que pedir un Eisenmann de USA a Espaņa es un rollo, mejor coger uno de Alemania.

Классно. Осталось втюхать Испанцам что эти выхлопухи не приводят к потере гарантии.
