They'll make more. According to the bulletin full production doesn't ramp up until March.

The only reason I haven't pulled the trigger on this yet is that I want to know more about the next M3 special edition coming to the U.S. this Spring.

If this is a waste of money then I am proud to waste it.

Can't beat factory quality I guess! Would love to see pics of it mounted along with your impressions.

I hope you got a 50% discount on this..... which is what I would consider "significant"

I am not about to dump $4K or even $2K on a system so that my car would just sound better without any performance gains.....

Overall thumbs up to BMW for releasing a OEM system but there are much better alternatives out there.

Yeah...I shied away when my dealer quoted me $4700 last Mon. I didn't inquire further, maybe I could of gotten it cheaper, but was more than I wanted to drop.

I agree, this would have to be discounted at least by 50% before its worth buying. Looks good and I am sure sounds good, but for the price BMW wants they must have been smoking some fumes when deciding on that price.

Purely for aesthetics. The prototype version of this exhaust was black, and that color masked its bulky canisters better than the light color of the exposed metal. I've asked BMW AG if they encountered any problems with the coating -- we'll see what they say. Do you know of any problems with doing this?

Hi Ian. Nope, BMW is being very tight-lipped about it. I asked them directly if it was Eisenmann about 6 months ago, and the answer was "no", but that was before the production delay pushed the release of this exhaust back from summer '10 to February '11. BMW could very well have switched manufacturers in that time.

I don't know, as I haven't installed it. Based on the product manager's description and the clip of the exhaust that BMW released last week, I'm guessing that it's going to be less bassy and more raspy than the ES in the low RPMs, less droney during cruising speeds, and louder during WOT. But that's speculation -- I'll let you know in about a week.

Thanks, Scott. Some friends and I may be doing Cars & Coffee either on 3/5 or 3/12. You should come out to that -- give me a call for the details.

I didn't measure them yesterday, but I will next week. They looked bigger than the stock tips when I was taking these pictures yesterday, fwiw...

I'll have EAS weigh the unit. It was definitely much lighter than stock, though. I was able to pick up the exhaust with one hand yesterday -- not something I could have done with the stock one.

And for those of you inquiring about the price, you can send a PM to Jimmy (GOLFFRR) for a quote. I got it within +/- $100 of what he's been quoting.

So you're saying you wouldn't buy any aftermarket exhaust because 80% of the exhausts available for this car are over $2k and none of them have any significant performance gains without replacing the mid pipes and cats. Axle back system are primarily sound upgrades.
