Thumbs up Vorsteiner exhaust - Hello titanium, goodbye overhang

I will add clips later. The exhaust isn't fully broken in yet. It does sound great already! Higher pitched, no drone, trust me, it's good!

Clips added!!!! FYI, this P&S camera I have has a terrible microphone...


EDIT: One more video I uploaded

The piping is much straighter than the zig-zag OEM piping. Huge improvement in design. I wish I had side by side pictures to show you but I don't. Wait for the Vorsteiner official release...

The best part is, the muffler is totally hidden now. I have been so busy, these are the best pics I can take.







Sorry it's a bit of a tease. My schedule is really hectic, this is the best I can do for now...

Do want. Although a lower price would be great.

I ran with one for a few weeks. They wanted to improve on a few things like the piping design. The BMW zig-zag is very inefficient, almost ridiculous, and now the pipe is shorter than before, less curves.

No, not all the way to the front but it's bolt on near the axle. Remus and Eisenmann require you to hack off the muffler and use the OEM pipes. It's similar to the picture below, but now imagine that those pipes are a lot straighter. The hack and clamp on exhausts usually end where those brackets are...

I've logged in 70 miles so far and it's REALLY nice. There is no justice done by describing sounds in words. The pitch is similar to Eisenmann... I'll try to get something recorded soon. The weight savings is somewhere around 38 pounds so it's starting to get light in the rear after the trunk and exhaust...

badfish, can I meet up with you sometime soon to take a look at your car? I'm dying to see all the parts as I'm probably going to order them soon and I might go for the exhaust as well. I could take a video of it for you too.

Wow, looks great. By far the best aesthetics on any modified M3 I have seen out there. Blows away all that fugly Schnitzer crap. Keep up the good modding work!

Amazing car!! We need to get together since we're local. I'd really like to hear it in person.
