550i with Supersprint exhaust

Just got my car back from the exhaust shop today.
Mounted a Supersprint X-pipe and rear mufflers.

The sound is very deep and bassy, but not too loud.
Iīm very happy with looks and the fitment was perfect.

Where do you buy this? What did it run you? I was curious how the car runs if you remove the stock exhaust because of the "flaps" that open and close?

Yes, the flap is still a concern for me too, ībut I have not had time to test it so much yet.

Will get back with more info as soon as I have tested it properly.

The price was 1900 Euro. Bought it through Schmiedmann ( BMW parts delaer in Sweden and Denmark ).

May I ask you two questions? Since I am planning to do the quad exhaust and M areo kit.

1) What is the diameter of the tip for the Supersprint?

2) Do you need to cut the rear bumper diffuser the cater for the quad exhaust? I know your stock 550 came with the trapezoid tips, are the stock cut-outs big enough?

Does the new exhaust still have that "Flap" that opens an closes in the exhaust or do they eliminate it completely?

how did it open anyway, is it vacuum controlled? if so what do they do with the vacuum lines?

Not sure about Cid's exhaust, but the ACSchnitzer exhaust I am having done this month fits with the Msport rear diffuser in place. No cuts, etc needed. This was important to me as I do not like the ACSchnitzer diffuser as much as the Msport.

No cutting for me either - the Supersprint exhaust fits directly into the rear M-diffuser.

I took a short vid with my iphone, but didnīt manage to upload it......?

Cid, having ACS springs and exhaust put on my 550 next week. Was curious how your feelings on the Hartge ECU are still? Any problems? thoughts?

Thanks

Bump, please upload a vid when you get a chance! Looking to do the exact same (x-pipe and exhaust). I know SS usually has a quieter sound then the other aftermarket companies.
