Difference between M performance and Eisenmann axle back exhausts

I trying to figure out what the main difference between this 2(both are made by Iconel), by just looking at them they look identical minus the tips and the price. Not sure if this has been asked before but just wondering what really the difference between the both of them.

'Inconel' is a material, not a factory (maybe you meant 'made OF Inconel'? ). Furthermore, Eisenmann makes an Inconel muffler, but it's A LOT more expensive than the regular S/S.

my bad Inconel is a material and not a factory. ok so the M perf exhaust is made of inconel material and that is why is much more expensive than Eisenmann. Though Eisenmann makes inconel material as well which my guess will cost the same as the M perf exhaust. Does this make sense?

The Eisenmann and the BMW Performance are not related. The cans are totally differently shaped. The Eisenmann cans hide pretty well, and the BMW Performance cans hang down a lot, worse than stock imho.

the Eisenmann Sport is very different sounding too. Much bassier, with less of a tonal change as RPMs rise.

The only thing they have in common is the Inconel. The Eisenmann Inconel is basically their race exhaust (inner construction)...that's what I was told when I was shopping around awhile back. It's a lot louder than the M Performance.
