Eisenmann Race on x5 M
 
Amazing exhaust here guys. Aggressive, but not obnoxious. Talking on BT at cruising is no problem. Blips on upshifting are just awesome. This is what the car should have come with. The truck definitely feels more "alive" now. LeMans tips are damn cool as well.

Enjoy. Professional pics and vids from the guys at IND to come soon.

Sounds good! I still wish the turbo V8's could sound as deep and throaty as the naturally aspirated ones... but the couple hundred extra horsepower makes up for that and some, besides, the full on modern high rpm race sound is pretty badass anyways.

Forgot M had told me you guys are getting together today at IND. I could have stopped by.

Exhaust sounds great. :thumbup:

what's the point of a gopro camera at the bottom of the car under the rear bumper? :D

sounds good, but plz more videos :) is it just the backbox or some piping is also included?

I wonder how a full de-cat system will sound.

Love it...sounds awesome :thumbup:

Sounds better than Pepper Turbo S. Hopefully, beefier, throatier exhausts will be a future option.

What does it sound like on highway speeds (65-85)? My only concern is drone in the cabin that would get annoying on long trips.

Cheers,

I heard an Eisenmann proto over here in Germany and while it sounds louder than the OEM exhaust, it is actually the same high pitch sound I actually don't like too much on my X5 M. No offense meant but this is just the wrong sound for a 8-cyl. SUV/SAV/SAC/whatever. Same with the exhaust in the video. Loud, nice but way wrong for a truck.

A exhaust expert over here in Germany claimed that he can change the sound to the typical V8 deep growl but the headers need to be exchanged. As a result, this would mean loosing at least 30 HP of power and some torque. :rolleyes: This would be unacceptable for me.

BMW M GmbH didn't think this through in my opinion. They actually gave a truck a race car sound, which is ridiculous. My X5 M sounds like a tuned 4-cyl. turbo hatchback, the exhaust sound just doesn't fit the car. :banghead:
