haha i remember that video, imo i think bmw performance is more worth it since it comes with the piping that deletes the res, where as the eisenmann is going to cost you another 1k+ for the mid pipes if you want them on top of the 1k for the muffler.

depending on the system from BMW , there are no extra items apart from the rear section,

But i have a chance to have either, what should i take ?

hmm imo i would go for the bmw performance unless you don't like the gurgling popping sound then go for the eisenmann( i am pretty sure the eisenmann doesn't pop not 100% though).

the didnt mention in that video if the eisenmann was running with the res still on the car. to me it sounded like it was still on the car.

BMW performance is prob a better value since you get more for your money

is it normal or is there sth wrong with my bmwp exhaust? i've had the exhaust for almost 8000 kms now, and i noticed today the gurgling popping sound is gone now.

btw performance exhaust gets my vote!

carbon build up inside the canister and what not.
you'll slowly notice less and less of the gurgle and pop, is because there is carbon build up in the exhaust now.

With so many recent members having issues with warranty and aftermarket performance add-ons, I'd go BMW PE all the way. Sounds great and keeps warranty intact.

from what i remember when i was looking at exhausts back then the eisenmann was like $1200 for the muffler and another $1200 for the mid pipes, whereas the full bmw PE costs what ~$1100?

there is a 3 week back order from BMW on the unit fcuk.

Pricewise, i get them at cost through my workplace, so the price was a lot less than regular retail

The main reason i want the BMWP system is , we sell so many Eisenmanns i wanted to be different.

lets hope :?
