F10 M5 Downpipes Installed?

Has anyone installed aftermarket downpipes yet?

What is involved in the install? How do you gain access to them and how much work/risk is involved?

I thought I saw something from EAS at least promoting their downpipes, but not sure anyone went ahead with the install yet.
Some tuners in Europe have them installed but I am not sure anyone has posted specifics here (yet).
A local turner here is also working on exhaust/downpipes but I haven't checked with them for a while, might be time to sync up again

As for work my guess is it's not trivial / quick as you might also need some special tools for the turbos to (re)align given the location of the downpipes inside the "V" .
If I find some time this week I might have a look at the F10 shop instructions to see what they say (labor estimate, tools etc)

F10 Performance Mods

Very interested in this as well. My primary performance mod goal would be to do the ECU tune, exhaust and finally, performance downpipes. It is my understanding from what I have read on the Boards (X5M/X6M) that this is a fairly basic mod, provided that you do this on a lift.

EAS has not done it yet. They don't have a buyer yet for their Innotech downpipes.
