Whenever I see your guys work I am always thoroughly impressed. One of my good friends is the welder / fabricator at BBI Autosport in Huntington Beach I always marvel at his work now I see your guys stuff and it looks as nice as his. Keep up the good work!

Yup place is legit, every DP, exhaust, turbo manifold or bracket, you see come out of that place is my boy Louie. He is one talented individual. He was willing to fly up to the bay and fab my stage 3 stuff on a weekend but he is so busy I just had a local fabricator do it. As I said AR's stuff reminds me of his

Sorry to be clear.... the exhaust we made was for an E9X M3, not for the 335i.

E92 M3 X Pipe


Pass side manifold getting started on a 964 Porsche.


Some serious tire on this Porsche!


Materials ready for welding!


Driver side manifold, first pass welding done. Next stop: tumbler, then back on the bench for a final pass!

so will there ever be a AR E92 335i full 'race' exhaust?

Can you also try and retain the crackling & popping that the BMW PE does so well, yet other systems dont seem to have (ETS etc) if you guys do design one?

Not likely. With the market getting flooded with Chinese made, low quality/cost products, I don't forsee us getting into that game.

So you guys couldn't see a profit in developing a full system around the $2k range?

There appears to be a market for eisenmann systems and they are almost $2K just for a rear section alone?

I could make a system for around $2k - and instantly have 95% of the people on this forum crying about the price Everyone seems to be buying the garbage knockoffs that are all the rage

I would laugh at them then, look how many AR Dps there is? You guys can charge a bit more I believe because of how awesome your product is. Your Dps alone are 700.00+ and I wouldn't even hesitate to get a exhaust for $2,000 from you....it would be bad ass to have a full AR exhaust (Dps back). I think it would sell a hell of a lot of theses to be honest....exspeacially from the FBO crowd. You could even throw a Dp + exhaust kit together or something.

I have had a lot of exhaust work done (muffler delete, resonators put in ect) and EVERYTIME not exaggerating I get a "Wow look at those pipes, they are unreal, who makes those?" comment on my AR Dps lol!!

If I organised a GB with 10 buyers could we get something happening from the AR skunkworks? (10 x $2K systems = $20K)

How about a single turbo exhaust manifold? You guys are awesome at that and as far as I know one of the first companies with the first running single turbo for this engine
