Congrats on this lovely piece of art!

If it performed and sounds half as good as it looks you have hit a home-run.

Can't wait to see/hear the vids!

Thx fo letting me check it out in person Nawaaz! You have a beautiful home & family!

I never had issues with 9 - 10 exhausts in the past w/crushed gaskets. It's usually the slip-on I've had issues with.

Some initial thoughts now that I've seen it in person...

- Welds look pretty good
- Very smooth bends w/no hard angles
- Black ceramic coating looks very nice!
- 90mm tips looks huge & crazy phat in person!
- Kinda baffled why Gintani slapped their logo on top of left muffler (can't see it after installed) & on bottom of right muffler but no big deal
- This bad boy's gonna be LOUD! I can't wait to hear it after install!!!

Loud it will be, but the gains will be INSANE even without a tune. It's by far the most beautiful exhaust I've ever heard for the E9X M3.

I was extremely worried, despite all my research to back my confidence up. Overall, the Gintani is a good system. No regrets on my part as of now.

Most importantly, I'm extremely happy you liked my home & family.

Thank you for coming on over. You're a true friend Jimmy.

Hopefully, I will concur after hearing it in person. I really hope I'll be impressed by the sound as you are.

Wow, that's a very nice looking setup you got there. Time to drive to Houston and get into my exhaust comparison video. Not sure we can shoot as same location though, because the neighbors have been complaining. Need to find one that is completely remote.

How much di you pay for that setup? The X-pipe looks heavy and so does the mufflers. do you know how much this setup weighs?

I'm in Frank!

It'll take more time, so you may have to wait up for a while if you may...

It's definitely gonna be loud. Go ahead and mark a permanent CHECK next to the Gintani, so that you may have your xmas list all ready to go!

I'll definitely have plenty, but it's gonna take a while since I'm still sorting all my mods and dyno schedule out.

Hope you can understand.

Sorry partner. I bet you can imagine how excited I am then. I hate to say it, but it'll take time for me to finish up everything.

Don't worry, I got you covered on several vids for the future.

Thanks for your understanding.

Gintani took care of me when they were running their special before. I'm sure they'll take care of you as well when you're ready to pull the trigger.

I'm very confident that this x-pipe is one of the lightest out there. The 2 resonators add some weight, yet the system is still not too heavy. Only thing I can think of is that a titanium x-pipe would be lighter of course.

Other than that, this system does save a lot of weight compared to stock I'm very sure.

Sorry, I have no exact calculations of the weight.

It'll most likely be the weekend before the Powerchip 'group buy' dyno tune. I'm expecting the tuning to take place sometime hopefully in early November.....Hopefully.

Its about time you finally got that exhaust in because the wait was starting to kill me your exhaust system is sick I know its going to sound awesome

All you have now is the Powerchip tune to go then you and QTRM3 can settle a few scores out at Autoscope on the dyno: Powerchip vs AA and then there is my favorite part the drag race on the dyno where we will also find out who's exhaust sounds louder Gintani full exhaust catless or Remus Race exhaust with AA X-pipe catless

Who will win this exhaust song and engine performance dance contest....??? Nawaaz or QTRM3 stay tuned
