Meisterschaft GT2 + SR pipe + Encore Innovation X-pipe with Metallic HFC

I just got my E93 M3 a few days ago. I have the Meisterschaft GT2 + SR pipe + Encore Innovation X-pipe with Metallic HFC set up.

It's crazy loud especially at highway speeds, I am thinking to put the stock X-pipe and cats back on!

hmm? I have an Encore X-pipe with the HFC in the garage waiting to be installed along with the stock muffler for now. Later I'll be going with either the Remus sport or race. I can't view youtube on this network but can you explain a bit more how loud it is? Is it at WOT or just cruising? I've not heard of this set up being way too loud but louder than stock is expected. Thanks,

How lond is it? I would say everybody will stare at you on the street. It's louder than Ferrari with tubi exhaust + test pipe. Now you can imagine how loud it is. I don't want to get a ticket so I decide to put the cat back on.

i can imagine it is loud. I had the AA exhaust with the Encore xpipe and thought it was just a tad bit loud. I kept the Xpipe and put the stock muffler back on and it sounds nice and loud at WOT but civil otherwise.

That would be WAY too loud. The GT2 is supposed to be insane by itself!

I wouldn't mind the loudness. I think I would be perfectly happy with something that loud. I've had it before, and I'll have it again.

BBS LM-R 20x9 + 8 front 20x10 + 18 rear, My car is lower with H&R sport springs.

Actually it sounds pretty good on the street but it is annoying me all the time.

Hi there - thanks for the post and the video.

This is how I want my car to sound, give or take ;-)... I am in the UK and relatively Noobish interms of understanding all the acronyms for the parts of the exhaust. I need to know where to order all those parts from. The Meiterschaft Gt2 was on my shopping list for noise, and then I want to get rid of the cats because they are just a blockage in the exhaust. I see on the gthaus website that the Gt2 comes in titanium and stainless, which do you have?

Can you pls quickly explain from the front of the car to the back, which parts are stock on your car and which parts are not. Right from the cylinder heads back pls :-). I don't want to end up ordering the wrong stuff. Cheers
