Another Eisenmann Race Exhaust Review

EDIT: More Sound Clips on the Bottom of this page/Next Page.

So I'll probably edit this later, but here's a quick review

I LOVE it. It sounds so menacing it's insane. I'll have videos I'll try to embed in a bit. Ask if you want any certain clips or if you have questions post in this thread. I'll be glad to answer/make videos of anything you want!

Sound Wise this exhaust is insane. It sounds SO loud even under 4K RPMs. I'm still impressed about how much different the car seems [to me] after install my exhaust. It took about 45 minutes for the whole thing to cool down, then about 1.5 hrs to install since they accidently cut my stock exhaust off GRR.. But they had another full exhaust from an E92 M3, so they gave it to me

The car sounds much more exotic than stock, I think BMW should have put this exhaust on from the factory. If youre wondering what to compare it to, it kind of sounds like a [c63] AMG car. Eisenmann did a wonderful job with this exhaust..

The fitment and install was perfect, everything fitted perfectly.

I'm in a rush to write this review, so sorry for any grammatical errors.

I'll go ahead and upload the videos now! I'll make betters ones later on tonight.

That sounds amazing!! I can't wait to order mine. How is it when cruising at normal speeds? Is it loud inside the cabin?

It's loud as shit when you want to be but very refined and toned down when you're not around 2500rpm. I love it but my neighbors hate it.

Not really, maybe just rowing through the gears and at cruise on the highway.

Keep listening to the ones you already have posted...

Eisenmann Race sounds truly magnificent, and because no one responded to a thread I produced a few weeks ago pertaining to what cameras have good sound quality, the videos aren't going to be the best lol.

I'll upload a few more!

Remember, It's hard for me to drive/shift/film with a camera at a time so my driving isn't exactly perfect

Short acceleration video up a hill before I reached a speed bump lol

Short video of me shifting around 8000rpms and getting on the highway. I'm playing with the gears to find a little "drone" which some members are worried about

wow the eisenmann for the m3 sound a lot better than on the m5. I have them on my m5 and it is very loud and nasal compared to my rdsport exhaust on my m3 which was a deep growl to it.

Remember my equipment for filming sucks, but imo, the M5 sounds way better than the M3 in any case lol

I'm tired though, I'll upload the rest later. If there is anything anyone would like to hear let me know

I installed a set of Eisenmann Race on the car this week as well. None of the interior video the OP posted is can accurately describe the sound of it.

Especially the interior vids, it's much louder and drones a lil at 2k and 3k rpm range. It hurts my ears a lil at 1st but now Im lovin it!

Thanks for making the vid DevJ.

Seems that people on another thread are saying it drones at those rpm ranges you mentionned which sucks because highway cruising is at exactly those rpm ranges. 100 to 120 kmph is all under 3k.

I wonder, how is the sport eisenmann? I know a local who is looking for an Eisenmann but doesnt want any highway drone.

I ordered the Eisenmann Sport for that very reason, as I have heard from several people that the drone is almost non existant. Many poeple say the OEM drones a bit, and the Eisenmann is no worse than OEM.

cool... where are you at in VA? I would like to hear this exhaust to narrow my choices of exhausts!

The Eisenmann Race unleashes the roar from a purr of that sweet V8 engine. Great choice Dev, glad you like it!
