talking Rogue Engineering e60 M5 Exhaust

The Gents over at Rogue Engineering did the Diablo exhaust install on my e60 M5 today; it's siiiiiiiiiiick!!!!! I'll keep all informed of the gains (Yes, there are gains) from the new can setup over the next couple of days. Ripped some back roads up an hour back and had a smile from ear to ear!

It's lighter hearted in the lower revs but screams in the 4000+. It's a subtler scream, not a meister/e-race type of "growl." Honestly, everyone has the Eisen setups; I had the e-sport setup, sold it, and now have the e-race setup sitting in my closet. Don't get me wrong; it has a great note but I wanted something different. I wanted an exhaust that wasn't as flamboyant when I go to the grocery store but shouts when I hit the pedal. I saw the prototype video from a year back for the Rogue setup on youtube and decided to go that route; I've only had the setup for less than a day but am happier with the RE choice. To each his own on how they want their exhaust note to sound. Besides, I'm more of a performance guy; the weight reduction and increased throttle response in the higher rev's is exactly what I wanted. The e-race ovals are nice looking but the larger RE tips fill that dreaded gap in the rear just as well imho. Not to phuck anyone up with a visual but I get a chubby with my setup This setup may not be for everyone but it's definitely for me.

Intro Buy Opportunity

I just got off the phone with Ben over at Rogue Engineering; he's offerring the exhaust at a killer price: $1,299.00 plus shipping (shipping shouldn't be to bad as the cans weigh a combined 40lbs and packaging would probably be another 10-15lbs). At that price the exhausts are going to fly!!!!!!! He and Mark are updating the site with install pics and I will be taking some more videos of my car with the exhaust. I'm not a sales person for RE nor do I get kick back from said sales; I'm blasting them out because they've got a killer product. I'm going to get my m5 dyno'd either this weekend or the next. I have my baseline, I want to see where the RE puts me.

I just heard the exhuast from this computer and it sounded alot better than from last time which was from a another computer. Go figure!

I had my eyes on the active autowerke exhaust but this sounds as good.

Congrats and enjoy!
