Eisenmann & Meisterschaft...same company??

Someone once told me that Eisenmann and Meisterschaft are the same company. Is this true?

The person who told me has a VW GTI, and he claims that his exhaust is called the Eisenmann Meisterschaft...

No, they are not the same company. This topic has been beaten to death, search around for more info. Unfortunately I learned the hard way, as I had an "Eisenmann" Meisterschaft Titanium system on my E46 M3.

Not the same company and never have been. Eisenmann is handmade in Germany and meister is made in Korea.

Eisenmann is a top notch quality and sounding exhaust, I will refrain from making any comments about the Meisterchaft...

The people that make Meisterschaft GTHAUS
Was making fake exhausts and passing them off under the eisenmann name, so in essence a Knock off

But even to just use the name was a very high form of flattery

I'm a fanboy and I support the product because I have it and it sounds sick! Quality of the welds and materials are top notch. Have you even seen or heard one before?

Dave, we have to get together so you can hear my setup. I'm sure you won't be saying that after you hear it on my car.

Yeah actually I have. Sounds ok. Not as good as my eisenman. Probably something that goes on when producing it in Korea. Hope your exhaust doesn't break like that other guy's exhaust.

This is hilarious! The weld on the guys split exhaust tip broke (which is a cosmetic of the tip and has no function whatsoever!) and you're making it sound like the whole exhaust just fell apart. Besides, three members asked him for pictures and no picture has ever been posted. I'll believe when I see it!

BTW, how's the drone on your Eisenmann Race?? Probably more obnoxious and a lot louder than my quiet Meisterschaft at 120km/h and 3000K RPM.

Okay seriously, I'm going to stop now because I hate arguing with people behind a computer screen.

For the customer whose split tips fell off, GT Haus is actually repairing the system and shipping it back. I'm just stating the they are taking care of the issue since they do have a warranty that covers things like that and they actually do care about their customers.

Also, it's a shame that people are so quick to judge the quality and sound of a product without even hearing or seeing it. The quality of the Meisterschaft systems is truly top notch and the sound is wicked.

For those who have actually seen/heard it in person and truly don't like it, that's fine. It's your freedom to have an opinion. There just seems to be a lot of band wagoners jumping on because they are easily influenced by members who have more than 1000 posts.

I'm not a fanboy. I just decided to get it over the other products because it was the right sound for me.

Good lord. Note to self... never bring this up again...

Noted. Eisenmann and Meisterschaft are not the same company. Never heard either in person, although they both sound nice on video.

the whole eisenhaus debacle was reason enough for me to steer clear of any subsequent products, but that aside, it's very hard to ignore how incredibly sick the eisenmann race sounds.


to lighten the mood a bit, here are slammedM3's videos from a couple of months ago that really capture its sonic beauty, especially the now classic video of him showcasing the exhaust in reverse. lmao!
