Wow glad I ran into this thread. Thinking of doing quad resonated (2 aftermarket, 2 stock), fully catless Eisenmann Race. Please let us know how it goes.

They are extremely high quality. I have two sets on my catless M3 and it really makes everything incredibly smooth. I've had vibrant before but it doesn't come close to Aero IMO.

When I had the vibrants on my Nismo 350z (also catless) there was this faint pitter patter that seemed to be isolated to where the resonators were. Apparently the heat and pressure of the exhaust gasses caused the "honeycomb" inside to come in contact with some of the surrounding walls of the resonator causing it to make a weird noise. To make matters even more strange, this happened to BOTH resonators on the car. I took them off, tossed them and put aeros on and they have been nothing but perfect and they appeared to make the exhaust sound much smoother and deeper. I was sold. Put them on my E92 M3 when I went catless and did exhaust work and never looked back.

How on earth can you substantiate this. The vibrant resonators are awesome and are actually packaged a little better to fit underneath.


You're post sounds silly


Edit: I have ran both and the vibrants are a great choice but its op decision.
