I would check the "flap-valve" on the original exhaust, and find out if it affects back pressure and how/what they do to get round it, sometimes changing the exhaust with this on it to removing it LOWERS bottom end torque, just check this first. However some people say it "Increases it".

Sorry for being technically ignorant about this but how exactly would you do this and does it dramatically decrease performance ?

The exhaust only on the 550i has one exit port closed at low RPM, I do not know why yet.

Eisenmann is working on it. 535 is already on sale. Not going to be cheap, for sure !

It should look something like this on the 550.
