Do you mean header back when you say whole exhaust system? If so, then RPI has the x pipe as well as the cat/resonator back section.

For a few hundred more you get a full system with the RPI. Something to think about.

The RPI full exhaust makes nice power and has a very nice note to it. We carry both Eisenmann and RPI exhausts, but I really do like the RPI exhaust for these cars as long as you are ok with its decibel level.

ooh tough choice. I heard the RPI on my friend Jimmy's car and it was pretty loud (if that's what you like). I still like it.

Although I was shocked that the Eisenmann wasn't as loud or nasal as I thought it would be compared to it on the M5, it was real nice sounding.

since you are in So cal, it wouldn't be hard to find cars with both at a meet. Save your money and go to a meet and hear it in person, in and out of the car. Nothing beats reality over web video especially when you drop that kind of dough.

Get RPI full exhaust if you like loud and mean sound with hp gains. I can't stop driving because of it. You'll enjoy it.

EISENMANN....there isnt a day that goes by that someone doesn't pull up to me at a light and says something along the lines of, "Wow, your car sounds incredible" or "your car sounds like an F1 car" or "your car sounds like an expensive exotic".

The above actually happens at least once, if not twice per day...everyday!

If you have the budget for it, I would do Eisenmann.

because he sells the eisenmann but not the RPI. Everyone is just gonna recommend what they have or what they sell. What it comes down to is the RPI is better bang for the buck. The eisenmann is sweet but more expensive.
