Quick review switched from AA to Eisenmann Race

Well i had a AA exhaust on my car for a few hundred miles and really liked it. Before that i had the magnaflows which sounded ok and def. are a great bang for your buck but droned quite a bit and werent really that loud. The AA had a great sound, IMHO no drone, very quiet while cruising, and was bolt-on. I just wanted something a little louder.

So a lot of people talked about how loud Eisenmann race was. So i thought i would try it. I think it still isnt loud enough lol. Different sound though. It is barely louder than the AA or about the same volume. It is ever so slightly louder inside then the AA. But hardly noticeable. I think the "drone" is very tolerable and my M3 is my only car. All in all both are great exhaust. They both have there benefits and down sides. I like the fact that the Eisenmann is one piece and fits perfect. Since the AA is two pieces that bolt together it takes a lot of tweeking to look good and i never got the fitment perfect on my car. But i did like the adjustable tips. Im not going to post any pictures or videos because thee are a ton already lol but just wanted to give a comparison to those who have a different sound or think the Race is to loud. I think its a great exhaust and very tolerable.

I think im going to get an AA x pipe with front cats or just do a secondary cat delete on the car then see how it sounds

x-pipe and hfc's will be loud and awesome sounding. I just switched from Eis Sport to AA with my Fabspeed x-pipe and HFC's it sounds awesome. Deeper at idle than the Eis, but soon as you step on the gas it changes to way more high pitch than the Eis.

Thanks for the comparison!

Im getting Eisenmann Race put on mine and its a daily driver as well.

Cant go wrong with either system of course. X-pipe will finish it off nicely if you want it louder. Sounds awesome in person.

You'll love the sound with the HFC and x-pipe. You have heard how my sounds on my car a few times however I don't think you heard it on top end. It sounds amazing! Simply amazing.

I was in the same boat as you cam, I wanted to go louder than Race but not to much more. The X-Pipe+ Cats was perfect. Heres an ok clip of my fabspeed setup. Drone is still tolerable but itll make your car scream.

So the AA is almost as loud as the Eis race?!
I am about to pull the triger on an exhaust. The M3 is my daily driver but I take it to the track often. So ideally would love to have something loud at high rpm but quiet at low rpm. I thought the AA is not that loud, but again it's hard to pick up the loudness on videos.
How about the Eis. Sport??
What's the HP gain with the Eis Sport, anyone?
