eisenmann,akrapovic,meisterschaft, rpi, or supersprint?

Hi guys, i know this is an m3 forum, but since there are only a few people in the x6 forum, and you guys seem to know a lot about exhausts,i will just post my questions about exhausts here.

im an x6m owner, i'm planning to get a new exhaust system, for a better, louder more aggressive sound . But i had a hard time choosing from those brands including akra, eisenmann, meisterschaft ,rpi and supersprint.

Can you guys help me with this? right now im focusing more on eisenmann since i saw most people said that it's the loudest , akra has better quality sound but i'm just worried if it's too quiet.

Any suggestions and comments are welcome. Thanx

I have heard the Akrapovic and Eisenmann Race both in person and the Eisenmann rear muffler only is more aggressive sounding than the full EVO Akra. The Akra sounded more like an Eisenmann Sport performance. It really comes down to if you will be adding downpipes later on. The Eisenmann Race will be extremely aggressive with a catless downpipe.

So the eisenmann race on your website doesn't include a downpipe? only the muffler?

The Eisenmann is the rear muffler only. No center pipes or downpipes.

might be a little late, but if you are looking for best performance get the akra full with downpipes, that wil sound amazing and add a good amount

Those tips are an option, along with regular silver looking tips(?). Go on the x5 forum and go to the classifieds section and you will see the prices for most of these exhausts. Anyone have any videos of the meisterschaft exhaust? I only found one on YouTube and it isn't a great video
