Anyone in the area with Dinan (or similar db) exhaust on E60 M5?

Posted on M5board as well but the activity level on their regional board is minimal.

Had an E90 M3 and recently acquired a E60 M5. I see a few random M5 and M6 owners on these M3 boards from time to time so I thought I'd ask.

Open to similar exhaust setups....perhaps RPI GTS??


Thanks Gents.

Thanks. Yeah I think he replied to my post on M5board but his setup is definitely more than I'm looking to do. (at least at this point! )

I think I'm going to have to just check them all out at a meet soon. I'll definitely join up.

Yes, I live in McLean and fill up at the Shell at that intersection so that was likely me seeing as how often I have to fill up!

I used to have an e60 m5 with an RPI exhaust and switched to the dinan because the rpi had too much drone.

This is my main concern.

People seem to say the RPI can be loud but that they couldn't hear any difference with the Dinan from inside the car. Apparently there is a "quieter" RPI GTS option now

Could you hear the Dinan in the car with the windows rolled up? It's a shame to have such a nice exhaust note that only others can hear.

Thanks for the input.

Quieter than what? What are you switching from?

Anyone here know who drives another AW M5 I came across in the area with an exhaust? I heard his exhaust and he was two cars BEHIND me! Upgraded halos and MD plates. Looked quite sinister from the front. Cool driver. A little while ago on 267 toll road....just curious.

I think I know who this is. It might be Imraan who used to have a sweet e46 M3 convert.

He is on M5board, lives in MD. He has a custom exhaust setup.

His SN is MRM5MAN

Look him up

Yeah, just curious. Thanks for the info.

I see so many Ms in the Tysons area it seems it needs it's own little mini meet. Behind a wonderful sounding black E92 today.

I'd like to get out to C

Thanks again mdyaman....

Yeah, I think my last post got cut off as I was saying that I'd like to get out to C&C in Great Falls but my schedule doesn't permit me to wake up quite that early. I'll make it to something soon, probably MPact...I'll also be heading up to the Baltimore Grand Prix. Not sure if you guys planning anything for that....

That sounds like him.

Since I was around Dulles and Ferrari of Washington is in the area I assumed a 430 Scud snuck up behind me.

where you at Tysons corner today around 7 pm, and stopped your car by Chipotle?

I was waiting for a forum member to do a photo shoot and saw a gorgeous LCI AW M5 with tinted windows.

Yep. Simply wanted a burrito but the tweens filled the line out the door so I just left. Didn't want one that bad.

Was the photo shoot with a AW E92 that possibly lowered on black wheels? Saw him stalking around the mall parking garages. I always see at least 3-4 Ms at a time parked in the garage by Coastal Flats getting a car wash. I find it humorous.

South Florida has a ton of Ms but I'm starting to suspect that little ol' Tysons may have more per capita. I've seen a X6m cut off a E93 M vert on international drive.

Yeah there were a lot of teens out that night. Tysons was a zoo, as usual on a Friday evening.

No, I was waiting on a red 335i who is a guy on the forums who was going to shoot my M5. We left and headed out elsewhere for pics.

Saw a AW e92 M3, probably the same one as you on Int'l Drive. Saw a very aggressive AW X6 with a body kit eastbound on 123. Not sure if it was a M, but looked mean.

We should meet up sometime!

Shoot me a PM anytime you are in the McLean/Tysons. I am far from a photographer but have a decent Nikon and could snap some pics of the two Ms. (my car is dirty but I personally kind of like dirty white cars)

Oh, okay. Let me know when you get it back....I'd be interested in hearing it. Briefly met up with mdyaman today in Tysons and his super nice IB E60 M5 so maybe next time a few other M5s can meet.

Sorry again M3ers for using your board but you guys are more active.
