Is it safe to install a Remus Race Exhaust on an M3 before the breakin period is over

I'm taking delivery of my M3 on October 25th and want to install a Remus Race Exhaust, but is it safe to install it right when I take delivery of the car before the break-in period is over or is it best to wait until 1,200 miles?

Thanks

Nothing wrong with it at all, as long as normal break-in procedures are still followed.

It's not 100% safe. The reason is that the exhaust will take control of your brain and cause you to push the car harder than is safe for the break-in. I broke my car in with the Remus Sport.

Race systems are set to arrive by 2nd week of November, you will have plenty of time to break it in

I would say no, simple because it sounds soooo good that you want to rev it

Like others have said, the exhaust doesn't really have anything to do with break-in unless you want to rev it up all the time.
