RPi F10 M5 GT Exhaust Install and Sound Clips

When I had my E60 M5, I went through several different exhaust systems before getting the RPi Exhaust. Naturally, it was a no brainer for me when it came to the F10 M5. Just last week I decided to visit Eloy at Race Precision to get the RPi F10 M5 GT Exhaust installed. I must say after driving it for the past few days, the exhaust is absolutely amazing! to the boys at RPi for yet another awesome exhaust.

Although I have not been able to do to dynos after the install I can definitely feel the increase in power. I did do a baseline dyno at RPi so as soon as I have time I will update this thread with the post RPi exhaust dyno. The exhaust note is awesome especially during startup and down shifts!!!! I live in Orange County so if anybody wants to hear it in person feel free to message me and I would be more than happy to meet up with you.

Below I have some images and various videos. What do you guys think?

Agreed with the break in, once the exhaust gets some carbon build up she will sound much better. as for the stock exhaust, I'll have to get a friend with a truck to help out lol

Pix

dbae1978 - did you happen to take any pix with the complete exhaust installed (or did you leave the pipes open behind that axle - just kidding!). Looks sharp and I can't wait to hear an M with a better exhaust sound.

RPI makes a solid performing exhaust but they are a bit too loud IMO. Have not heard this one yet in person.
