couple more questions....

Do the exhaust tips stay stock?  Who would do the fitting?  Warranty - do we care?

no it'll be evosport exhaust tips with 'evosport' discreetly etched on the top section. I'd use one of the guys who do a bit of work for YSS to install.

warranty of the exhaust? sure... :rolleyes: :p

I'm still in discussions with evosport in the US for their muffler unit which is listed at US$1945. Waiting for some air and sea freight prices and hoping evosport will give additional discount for extra set purchase. Would you consider doing it this late in the life of yer M5, MHH? If M500 does it then we'll have 3 sets.

From my reaserch, just the muffler unit sounds a little dronning. To get the sound I think we are all after, we need to get the whole system or at least from the cat converter back.

I am also in discussions with Evosport re the various options/ costs.

Will keep all posted.

How much of the sound in the vid is coming from the headers and the highflow cat I wonder... 

It sounds damn good but maybe TOO loud?   :D

From my understanding, the loudness can be varied according to the type/ deletion of the resonators. According to Evosport the exhaust on the vid is without the resonators.

Justin-


Thank you for your interest in evosport!

The items are priced as follows. Shipping via UPS International Expedited is $1,946.10.
 

evosport headers : $4,499

evosport hi-flow cats : $2,495

evosport x-pipe with hi-flow resonators : $595

evosport race muffler : $1,945


 I would like to think we can secure a better deal if we order several at the same time

So what bits are essential and what bits don't matter.  Taking the lot is looking pretty expensive.

I agree. I might ask at the M5board on what they think is essential to achieve the desired sound effect. If it's just the muffler, the guy from Evosport gave me the packaging size as around 0.18 cubic meter, and 20kgs. I've asked him to get some air freight rates for that.

From my understanding, the total package gives that amazing sound on throttle.

From looking at and hearing (on You Tube) various combinations, the only part I cant see making much difference is the Cat Converters.

I agree the whole system is expensive, in particular the headers... geez I can remember getting "extractors" for my V8 Commodore about 12 years ago for about $400... how times have changed.

After listening to the videos again, I think i'll only be happy with the Hi-flow Cats, X-pipe with Hi-flow Resonators and Race Muffler....that's US$5035 excl freight.... :waah:

Maybe get the muffler first and see if that is enough  :confused: :scratchchin:
