Great video. Thanks for the info Tim & Marc.

But do you actually 'feel' more power due to the downpipe or what?

Cheers
Robin

Nice video,some very informative info.Beautifully made exhaust and it sounds amazing.

Isn't that the M2 that MR. drives?Looks like he got rid of the smoked tail lights which don't look good on the car.

Thanks guys!

More about the exhaust in this topic: http://f87.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1301086

Robin_NL I do not feel more power really. I need to do a new dyno run and see what the results are

The most noticeable thing is how the sound outside and inside is developed. Amazing how well it is set up and how it produces the right kind of sound track.

It looks to big for 200 cell downpipe, or the core is twice of the size of the one that Fabsport is using.

Btw, @MR. amazing video buddy, and it sounds perfect!

I'm very happy to see that you demonstrated the burble mode.

They told me it is a 200 cell downpipe.

Of course, you have to do that. Everyone that hears that is like W T F that sounds good...

Easily the best sounding exhaust option for the M2. I was impressed since that test video at the 'ring with the white M2 revving.

Amazing sound!

However is it a little bit too loud even at its quietest setting on day to day driving?

Holy cow!! Does the F80/F82 exhaust sound as good as this one? Then it'll be a strong buy!

Thank you. I was thinking the same exact thing. Not 'crap' rather 'krah' phonetically.

Ah-krah-po-vich

But great video and the best exhaust!!!!
