SuperSprint Installed!!! (archive)

After a long delay, waiting for the exhaust to come in from Italy it finally arived. I was able to put it on last night.

The fit and finish of the echaust is very good. I only had minor complications replacing the exhaust. After 130,000 miles of New England salt I had to cut off many of the bolts. Then installing the exhaust I found that in my case taking the bumper off made it easier to get the exhaust on. Had I used a lift taking the bumper off would not have been necessary.

I do recommend replacing all of the metal hangers, bolts, and rubber that holds the exhaust in place. This only adds about $50 dollars or so to the cost of the exhaust but it is worth it.

Impressions;

The SuperSprint is very quiet, it is just a little louder than the stock exhaust. I thought the sound would be more like the B&B modified, but my friends 98 M3 with the B&B proved that the SuperSprint wispered. Driving the exhaust sounds really nice and the tips are beautifully polished and stick right out so all can see.

My only other concern is that the exhaust came in two pieces where as a B&B is only one. It way be a place for a possible leak???

Well, hope all of this was helpful.
