New thread about exhaust systems

Consider that it could be interesting for some

First, I want to say that i have already read nearly all topics about exhaust systems, but i want you to help me choose

What i want?
For some time i want to stay with stock ECU managment, so taking into consideration this fact, how many cats i can get rid off? I consider that two last ones can be wasted, am i right? Or i can get rid off all with no problem for the engine and ECU, and there will be no checks flashing?

I do not like the look of one big mufler type stock exhaust, so I'd prefer separate muflers instead. Remus exhaust muflers seem and look quite nice, but Remus provide only the muflers, and i want full exhaust system from first two cats(or from headers).

For now, Iam not that crazy about the weight (frankly speaking - crazy, but more crazy about the amount of money they ask for such systems), so any material will suit.

So what would you recomend?

p.s. if the desired system could be purchased separetly, that would have been perfect

Thank for your comments, recomendations and answers in advance.

I have the Remus Race and the drone is fine with me, I have no problems with it. I also drive on the freeway a lot. Im actually looking into making it a little bit louder.

Louder??? Hahaha!! Great!! Donīt get me wrong, I absolutely love the sound, but yes, the drone does bother me especially on tripos over 1 hours. I certainly like it better than stock despite the drone and really have no way to compare to other aftermarket exhausts as I have not listed to any in person.

I think the Race is still on there, but in the next couple of weeks it will be the RD Sport exhaust.

Interesting, I was about to post the same question in a few weeks because I'm also interested in a new exhaust system. Keep the info flow going, I'm interested in what everyone has to say and their experiances with different exhaust systems.

Isn't it illegal to remove your cats? I remember there was a very large fine if you were caught. Also does ur exhaust sound very raspy if you remove your cats?

The AA system would definitely fit the bill.



For those who are crazy about weight, the Vorsteiner is one of the lightest systems on the market (17 pounds vs. 55 pounds).

Feel free to contact us for a quote.

RD is great choice it sounds mean.

Have you been in an Eisenmann? I've been in both - and the drone is louder with the Eisenmann acutally it was pretty annoying on the freeway. The remus drones a bit but no where near as much. Eisenmann builds a great product and I like their stuff, on the E46 M3 it made me many times.

The AA system is very agressive well made. They really hit the right tone there.

What do you think about Supersprint system? As far as i saw some youtube short vids, i should say i kind of like it. Its quite, looks nice, and i can get the full, header back system... The price tag also fit my budget. But there are some options, please help me find the best for me:

- mufflers sport or race (considering that i dont want it to be loud, think that i should go with sport ones)?
- x-pipe with or without resonators (again, considering the loudness, better stay with the resonators)?
- if i will purchase the system separately, not all at one time, i wiil probably face sawing?
- after instalation of the whole system, will i have to alter the stock ecu managing program(dont want to do that)?

No never heard any other exhaust but the Remus Sport and Race. Good to hear that they donīt drone as much as some other exhaust systems.

Perhaps, but it is bolt on, full 304 stainless, good looking, lightweight-34lbs, AND the least expensive of any other exhaust for the E92 M3. Very hard to top.
