Cool Gintani - The Arrival

It's here. My full catless exhaust system from Gintani is finally here.

I'm a very picky person, yet I'd have to say that the overall quality of the entire system is very good. It is completely what I expected it to be like, after all of my hard research here on the forum. Many may wonder why I chose this particular system. While choosing an exhaust for my M3, the following were my priorities, listed from most important to least:

1.) Sound / Volume
2.) Quality / Fitment
3.) Looks / Simplicity / Flow of design
4.) Power
5.) Drone


I know, I've taken so many pics....But I wanted to provide them since there aren't too many threads that show the full system up close and in detail. So therefore, I really and truly hope that these pics give a very good idea to all members here.

I understand that many will want installed pics, but unfortunately it may take a little while before I may provide those. Yet the good part is that I will make several vids when all my mods are finally on my M3. And yes, I will provide a BEFORE/AFTER dyno when I post those vids/pics in the future.

Meanwhile, please enjoy.

Quality looks top notch, and I love the black tips.

Folks will definitely hear you coming long before they see you.

Thank you Tom. I'm hoping everyone will hear me.......Except the cops.

I'm sure the sound will be very, very impressive.

She listens to ROCK & ROLL all the time. I'm sure she'll have absolutely no problem with it.

No seriously, I have 3 other daily drivers, so I should be ok in taking her in the other cars.

I know that quite a few people sell the rear portion since it's too loud, but I know what I'm getting myself into....And I'm pretty confident that I'll keep my full system on for as long as I have my M3. (keeping my fingers crossed)

It is. I've always read that the Gintani x-pipe is one of the best designed out there for our e9x m3.

Go for it!
