Exhaust

I wanted to get some opinions on which exhaust to get for my 550i so far I'm looking at:
dinan
Eisenmann

The dinan exhaust is about $1k more than Eisenman.

I know Acs makes one but I don't like the tips. Master..... Is too loud.

What do u guys think?

I have a F10 550i (M-sport) and am about to receive my Eisenmann Race exhaust within a week. I'll post my opinions when I get it.

Okay, I was thinking about the sport version because I didn't want it to be really loud. What made you decide to go with the race?

Also,

I talked to Dinan today and they quoted me $3700 plus install for their exhaust. I can't justify spending $4k for a muffler.

I elected to go with the race version, because the sound clips I have heard really do not sound that loud. The car has a whole lot of sound dampening in it. Since my car is a lease, I didn't want to install a complete system. So, I decided to go with the best sounding, axle-back exhaust.

You're in NOVA go see Joe at Benchmade Proper and get yourself a custom exhaust. The nice thing about having a local fabricator do it, if you have issues or want to change the sound Joe will take of it for you.

He's fabricated exhaust and downpipes for other F10's as well as many e9x's. You should see the x pipe he's fabricated for GTR's, simply awesome!
