Who is building the system for you? Is it coming from Japan? China? Or you actually building these in house. Just curious...

Any chance of making a stainless steel version? If yes, what's the weight & ETA? I had a bad experience w/a titanium exhaust so I'm trying to avoid it. Also, what are the tip sizes? Thx!

Curious. What was the bad experience? Did it have to do with the manufacturer or the material?

The issue is w/the material & it had nothing to do w/the manufacturer since I've heard of others having this issue w/other titanium exhaust manufacturers as well. Titanium has a much higher chance of cracking due to the brittle nature of the material. In otherwords, titanium can't withstand heat as much as stainless steel. As much as I loved the Amuse titanium exhaust on my old Honda S2000, there was one problem...it cracked once at a weld area so I had a local welder re-weld it w/a piece of titanium then sold it. A few months later, the buyer asked me where I recommend getting it welded since he had a crack in another area. From what I remember, he never had another crack/issue w/it afterwards but then again, this was 4-5 yrs ago.

Hence, I'll never ever buy another titantium exhaust again as much as I love the sound of titanium & weight savings. There's a reason why (German) TUV/EC doesn't give it a stamp of approval (full titanium exhaust for consumer/street use in Germany). Not trying to knock on the Vorsteiner, just explaining what I personally went through.

Yup, for the reasons I just said.

Should have clips soon, it was unfortunately not ready for Bimmerfest.

This exhaust will be released at first in Titanium exclusively.

Now taking pre-orders at www.jlevisw.com

"Pre-Order?" you say? Highly recommended. Many customers pre-ordered the diffuser, front lip, and the new V-35 hood.... and they are glad - because now there is a 4 week backlog before the product even starts shipping!

This exhaust will be in extremely high demand, and we want to make sure our customers have it as quickly as possible!

50% deposits are available also!
