M5 exhaust to 535i

Very interested in adding a stock M5 exhaust to my 535i M Sport. My main concern is adding an exhaust thats has been tuned to a M5 engine to my 535 motor. I'm not happy with the cars rear end look and that is the reasoning to the switch, but I do not want to loose any performance to my car. Over the weekend I meet with Lacster to check out his exhaust since he is running the M5 exhaust with basically the same car other then the M Sport and Sport transmission package. His exhaust sounded good, but seemed like mine sounded just as good if not better and mine is stock. So with that being said:
Are these exhaust tuned for each individual motor and would installing a M5 exhaust on a 535 actually hurt what has already been designed to work from BMW?
Any information on this would greatly be appreciated. Thank you

No exhaust are not tuned. If you're only going axle back not much will matter. When you start going cat back that's when things start getting a little more engine specific. And if you're going to get an exhaust... Get an actual cayback exhaust instead of just a muffler replacement you get with an axle back..
If you're going to get an exhaust I'd suggest the vorstiener set up.. That thing sounds nice.
