E90 Eisenmann Race on the way!

I finally pulled the trigger! Only question I have for the masses is anything unusual about the install? I plan on doing it myself and since I also got the connecting pipes, I wont need to hack anything apart. Inputs?

Enjoy your exhaust! I had nothing unusual about my install experience. Just go to a reputable experienced installer to avoid any problems.

Congrats,


Install is pretty straight forwards, no cutting or anything... But I would recommend getting a muffler do it for $60 or less since it only takes 30 mins to install a bolt on system. They have the right equipments and most importantly, a lift.

I have access to a shop with all the tools and more importantly the lift...so other than a lack of experience with installing an exhaust, what advantage is there to taking it to a shop?

Catch I take it you have the E90 version of the Eisenmann? Anyone else have luck getting the tips to match up better and not stick out so far? If not, time to get a diffuser...

Actually my Eisenmann Race exhaust was the first version that came out which fit both the E90 and E92. My tips stick out a little more than the ones made specifically for the E90.
My VRS Type II Diffuser is on the way as we speak so this will remedy that problem.

Very easy to do yourself. I did mine lying on my back with car on jack stands.

The exhaust can actually be moved front to back, when it's mounted on the car with all of the bolts loose, so it's easy to adjust the tips to stick out to your liking. We can get the tips to be flush with an OEM rear bumper, or any number of aftermarket diffusers, when we perform the install here at our shop.

Hey Ilia,

Are you talking about the bolts that connect the mid pipes to the connecting pipes and then the bolts from the connecting pipes to the muffler? Since I obviously cant get this done at your shop, just some friendly advice or even some pics would be greatly appreciated!

There is a small amount of adjustment possible if you loosen the clamps that mate the canisters to the connecting pipes. The exhaust can move forward or back about an inch.
