In Reply to: SuperSprint Installed!!! posted by Baer on January 27, 2000 at 10:06:15:
glad to hear you finally got your exhaust from Italy and installed it. I can could tell you could not wait to put it on (with all of snow and cold weather we been having) I went with the b&b modified. I was like you i ran out as soon as i go it to install it but the cold weather was kicking my but on top of all of the rusty nuts. I chicken out and took it to the shop, not to bad $150.00 installed plus they were able to save me my old exhaust in one piece. It's a little loud but the sound is cool and bearable.

i>: 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.
: 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.
