Forgive me if I'm off my rocker here, but the words "Deep" and "Exotic" really contradict themselves unless you mean at idle. Which, in your opinion, is more high pitched?

Vids to prove my theory

Ferrari CS Tunnel - Forgive the music...



Gallardo with Tubi



Carrera GT



Zonda

Wow the Zonda and 430 sound are simply amazing!! I think the Remus Race will sound more like those than othe exhaust, but not the Sport. We'll see I suppose.

Always a tough choice, but the decision ultimately depends on the personality of the customer. If you have clients and customers in your car, or are on business calls often, perhaps it's best to go with the sport. If you're more extroverted, and not as concerned with that, the race is the way to go!


I really appreciate the compliment! Hearing things like that from our customers is what makes coming to work every day worth it.

Go with the race, no regrets for me and I'm also adding a GruppeM so think how loud that would be.

Okay here it goes...can't figure out how to do video yet but here are post install pics. I did go with the OEM flush mounted stock look with my install. The protruded pipes look okay for some...more aggressive I give you but the exhaust in itself is SO much of a change from the stock that all you need is to hit the start button and/or drive a few miles to figure out that you've got a whole different M3 now!

Car now has a deeper throaty growl to it at start up and throughout the throttle power range! At hard acceleration it sounds deeper without much drone. You can tell that the exhaust IS different when driving the car with the windows up however and can faintly hear the exhaust. With the windows down you can clearly hear the exhaust.

Overall very satisfied. Sounds great. Look excellent. Well worth the money...almost drove the car all the way home with the mute button on the radio just to hear the engine! LOL

Looks great, enjoy it. It will seem really loud at first but it will tone down as the exhaust "breaks in". You think it sounds great now, it even gets better.

Congrats on the Eisenmann Sport performance Do you notice a funny smell at the moment? That will go away and the sound will fully mature around 1200 miles.

+1 for what Nate said...

I had a funny smell and also the sound seemed a bit muffled at first.
But after about 1200-1500 miles, it sounds PERFECT! Absolutley amazing!!!

Nate-

I'm counting down the hours until I get my Sport exhaust installed this afternoon. Once the market closes....I'm out!!

I'll let you guys know how the install goes and thanks again for always providing sound and prompt information on your products.

Sweeeet! Everything worked out and the exhaust was installed perfectly, piece of cake!
First reaction I had was that the Sport is definitely louder, deeper, and much more aggressive than OEM; regardless of what the numbers say.

The sound is a deep base upon start up or take off; and literally turns heads where ever i drove, and in a "pause walking, turn your head, what car is that coming look," not a "bad WTF look" I'm not sure if this is temporary, much like the nasty smell; but my car gurggles and rumbles when decelerating now, very mean sound. Buddy of mine mentioned, " I can usually hear you coming from a block away; today, I could hear you from about 3."

I'm still getting used to the sound, but I am very satisfied so far and will post pics of exhaust and some more feedback on the install tomorrow. Also, pipes were welded on as well; and placed to the OEM look( not much option on the coupe, will explain later), in which the pipes do extend about 1 to 2" past the diffuser upon the metal warming up and are flush when cold.

Funny, I can notice what OEM lacks now IMO. OEM's rumble was absent at low rpms and engine sound is very apparent. Eisenmann Sport, is growling/rumbling off that bat and enhances the overall sound of the car in combination with the engine intake sound. At throttle the exhaust just gets better and as "I" prefer, the engine sound becomes slightly equal to the exhaust under hard throttle; I imagine Race would muffle engine sound much more.

Thanks for all the help IND!!

Awesome! We're glad that you are enjoying your Eisenmann. The E92 M3 Sport Performance is my personal favorite Eisenmann at this point. The level and tone of the sound is just about perfect IMO.

Was planning to, until my TPM kept going off yesterday, front right is flat...taking off right now to the tire shop.

By the way, I didn't use the BMW shop that called you n Friday, instead used a superb muffler guy a few shops down. The dude was a pro, did the install in under an hour (didn't rush, he just didn't pause), used levels, checked for leaks, etc etc. He was also very impressed with the quality of the exhaust.

Will try and post some pics after this tire BS is fixed.

Posted pics from a distance.

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...=1#post3100338

After a few days of driving, I really really like the sound above 3K rpm, could use a little bit more metalic note at low rpms, but the rumble is great at that range. You can't tell from the vids, but low rpms remind me of the Porsche GT3RS sound. Other than that, I'm excited to let this thing rip at the track next week!
