Absolutely torn between eisenmann race and revinora.

I can't decide which system I want. The Eisenmann Race is so exotic sounding and I love it. However, I love loud exhausts and the Revinora is significantly louder than the Eisenmann Race, and it is about $1000 dollars cheaper. I need some input and suggestions.

its cheaper and its louder, both are pluses if thats what you want.

i would take the race though, sound is more important than volume to me.

Ya that is one thing that is keeping me from making the decision to go with the revinora. The tone of Eisenmann Race is one of a kind. However, the the tone of the Revinora is beastly as well.

Any performance gain from one to the other?

Edit: I recall reading, but cannot locate the link, a report of an exhaust system which showed the system, and that it use a "dummy" exhaust tip where on each side, one of the two pipes was only for cosmetic purposes. Wish I had made a note of it. I thought they made a pretty good performance argument.

If you want loud like me, check out the Gintani exhaust.

Here's a video link to how the full exhaust sounds inside and outside the M3:

if you like its tone and its volume, then its price is just icing on the cake. Take it. if you didnt love its tone, then i would say go race, but since you like both tones, i dont see the problem. With the saved money you can do other things.

Same here. I was torn between Gintani, Eisenmann and Revinora.

I've heard all 3 in person and they all sounded great, I especially like Revi and Eisenmann but I got a chance to drive an M3 with Revinora on it and I fell in love. It sounds so perfect in the car, no drone, loud but not obnoxious, and it sounds like a freakin monster from outside! And my butt dyno saw some gains lol

So i decided for sure I'm going with Revinora Ill post up some vids when I get it on

I dont have too much info on it but I believe its going to run for about $1900 and Need 4 Speed ( http://www.need4speedmotors.com/ ) in LA is the official vendor.

I'll post dyno charts soon as its on my car.


Still no vids or pics of the finished product but heres some vids of the prototype on a DCT E92. This is just the end section with stock mid-pipes...

Holy crap...Revinora sounds like a crazed/wild monster raging the streets! lol Love it.

E-Race sounds more refined and exotic...very intoxicating kind of sound. To me, E-Race + M3 = a perfect match...they just go well together.

I don't think you can go wrong either way.

I'm sold to say the least on the Revinora.

If it ever gets too quiet for your tastes just slap a fabspeed x pipe on. LOL.
