Post Exhausts

I have noticed lately that aftermarket exhausts have been discussed ad infinitum.

I just sold my 2000 M5. The new owner did not want to pay extra for my movit Porsche Brembo brakes. However, he insisted that the car retain its Kelleners export version exhaust.

Having heard all the exhaust sound bites on this board, its my humble (and studied) belief that the Kelleners exhaust makes the nicest, deepest, "racy" sound without being too intrusive to the occupants (probably due in part to the E39's great sound deadening.

So while the rest of you wax poetically about the Remus, Supersprint/Hamann, B & B, Tubi, Borla, Dinan et al, don't forget about the (lately) seldom-mentioned Kelleners!

Where did you get the brakes from. Did you keep the set, would you sell them. Would you recommend this and did they have the red calipers and cross drilled rotors.

thanks

Where did you get the Kelleners exhaust? I'm interested in it for my 2001 Le Mans. Thanks

I bought the exhaust directly from Bohm + Kelleners in Germany. I dealt with Ralf Kelleners directly -- I forgot the name of the person in charge of the parts dept. They both speak perfect English.

+49-2064-449980
+49-2064-449940 - Fax

An added benefit of this system is that the tips look more-or-less stock (except that they are larger in diameter (90mm vs. 72mm).

The inside tip on the left and right sides are slightly longer than their "outside" counterparts so as to conform to the gentle convex curve of the rear bumper (similar to the OEM tip set-up).

HadE55NowM5 or may I call you HadE55M5NowX ?

What will the X be for kind of car?

And -just out of curiousity- why did you sell your M5? I really enjoyed your well thought posts on this board! And you sell a very complete M5 there!

Rergarding Kelleners, a Audio CD will be possible to order from Kelleners in the near future. Stay tuned for updates!

I'm still trying to figure out if you work for Tubi . Maybe a nice discount off your's for spreading the word...

Regardless, I think an M5/Tubi soundbite is going to be essential to sell the product. When you have your's installed make sure to hook us up!
