Gruppe-M Titanium Exhaust

Hello guys, I am a sponsor of E90Post/M3Post and I just wanted to let you know that I am a long time dealer of Gruppe-M. They have just recently released their titanium exhaust for the E92 M3. If anyone is interested, please PM me for pricing. If its available in Japan at the time of ordering, I can have it within 1.5 weeks.



Video can be seen HERE

Thank you!!

Ed @ SP-POWER

I can't remember the proper name for it, so I'll just use the layman's terms.

Where are the Ti tips? I remember the e46 had the heat rainbow colored tips, which I had always assumed to be a staple of Ti exhaust systems.

Any particular reason that you know of for them to not do that here?

I still think they should post the price even if it was 20K. This way we will all know if to keep looking at this as something feasible or forget it and move on to the next tuner.

It's not about secrets. It's to weed out the serious vs. non-serious. People who are more serious than others will take the time to PM me, window shoppers will keep moving along.

I've already received a few calls from interested members... I have nothing to hide.

If you really want to know just pm the op. why bother posting useless replies asking people to post a price. That should save you some time there.

This doesn't make any sense whatsoever. Post the price, and the window shoppers will window shop without bothering you once they see the price. How is not posting the price keeping them at bay? Serious shoppers will PM you anyway after seeing the posted price.

Yes, this is a strange scene in here.
What are some people trying to do?

Thanks for keeping my post bumped to the top guys.

For those who KEEP INSISTING on me posting a price, apparently you are not aware of how retail pricing vs. internet pricing works. There is what is called a MAP PRICE. If you don't know what this is or how it works, please stop posting these requests for me to post these prices in PUBLIC.

Thanks.

I am also offering this intake system as well.









I just got word from Japan that these systems are in stock and ready to ship. Turn around time to your front door will be between 2-3 weeks. 1.5 weeks to get to me, 1 to 1.5 weeks to get to you.

No secrets here guys.

I know what MAP pricing is, but that is not the reason you stated earlier for not posting price, hence my earlier post. Thanks for the clarification though. I will PM you for info.

Also, do you have any drive-by video/sound clips?

Here is the page with some more specs on this:

http://www.gruppem.co.jp/en/home.html

9.1 kg is pretty damn light. It does sound good, too, but I wish there were some drive-by videos. The only video available is stationary.

I am not sure about what to make of those performance numbers. The deltas seem optimistic to me...

For stock GrouppM claims stock does 16.57s, but BMW's number is 15.8s.

GuppeM claims 15.33s for the intake PLUS the exhaust.

Regardless, I will seriously consider this.

Now you tell us, I ordered this strait from Japan last week, cost me, with shipping to SD, a little under $2,800. Could you post performance figures for both intake system and exhaust?

Hi, the only performance figures are the ones posted on the Gruppe-M Website, and even then they're just times from point a to point b, so it's not like it's on a dyno unfortunately.

If anyone local to me would like to have us install this package, I can give them a free before and after dyno.
