Best Sounding Exhaust

a friend of mine is currently searching an exhaust system for his 12' F10 M5

he seeks for:
-as loud as the exhaust can be
-lots of HP gain

currently he ordered akrapovic, but he can still cancel it, since we heard from many people that it doesnt sound that "loud".

thanks,

Dude, this is so subjective...LOL!

Seriously though, if your buddy wants to have something that sings above 4.5K, my vote is still Akra. If he wants something really ballsy below that which is loud, I'd say Meisterschaft or Eisenmann Race.

Forget lots of HP...just not there with the restrictive cats in the downpipes.

I just pulled my Eisenmann Sport system off and switched to GtHaus Super Light GT with LXR center section, and I definitely wouldn't want to go any louder. It screams to the point that my wife doesn't want to ride in the car any more.

OP, this:

http://f10.m5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=814414


As an aside, last weekend I was at a 4-way intersection in a small village where there were some people walking around and I revved my RPi GTM to 4,000rpm where a huge crack was suddenly produced. I had my front and rear windows completely down, and it was the very first time I have ever heard a woman scream from being startled by my exhaust! LOLOLOLOLOLLLLLLLL!!!!!

She made a big "AHHHHHH!!!!!" sound from her mouth. I was dying of laughter after I took off from the intersection. You want a level 7 exhaust with cracks as loud as level 10, then call RPi.

The Eisenmann Race is my second favorite though is sounds AMAZING for what it is!

Good luck bro!

The akra is refined. Not loud.

Go E race or Meister for loud. Or RPI GTM if you're nuts

If you want the loudest/meanest exhaust I would say go with the full meistershaft and then straight pipe it and add downpipes.

I have now heard pretty much all options in person.

My favorite-
1. Eisenmann Race rear section only
2. Eisenmann Sport + center pipes
3. Akrapovic EVO

I park my car right next to another M5 that's running the Akra system. The Gthaus is way louder.
