E28 M5 custom exhaust project update (archive)

The M5 exhaust project will definitely be a go! The prototype may be built as early as the beginning of next week. I had a meeting with the fabricator last week and we discussed a few different options:

1) Dual 2.25" or 2.5" stainless steel pipes will be the better way to go than one 3" pipe, and will also be quieter. Design will follow the original system, one resonator and one muffler. Eliminating the resonator will cause a drone at certain rpm that I'm sure none of us want (BTDT).

2) Low sound level with good flow will be the target. From my past experience with him, we should not be disappointed.

3) Tip design - staying with two simple angle-cut pipes, polish-look.

4) Since we're making such a small quantity, pricing will probably be as anticipated, around $650 plus roughly $50 shipping. It may be more or less, I won't know until the prototype is built.

If you know anyone else with an M5 who would want one, please contact them - the more we have built, the lower our "per unit" cost will be. Onesies and twosies can be made later but they'll cost more.

So, at this point, the important question: who is interested? I already have about 8 people in on the deal. If you want one of these systems, please contact me immediately so I can put you on the list. Include your tel. no. in e-mail.
