Tell me what loudness and what kind of sound your looking for and I'll tell you which set up to run. Ive heard just about everything for the M5.

I would say Eisenmann Race mufflers would do the trick. If you add the x-pipe it would sound a bit more aggressive. Neverless, your not going to have the same sound cuz its a V10 compared to a V6 engine... With the eisenmann set up, its should sound very clean and exotic.

Now if you want to step it up to the next level, get the Meisterschaft with x-pipe. It would sound much more aggressive and exotic!

How about for someone looking for a no drone during normal cruising, but louder at higher rpms. Dont want to not be able to use my handsfree BT phone feature of the car either.
Thanks

I would have to say Dixis on this one! very quite in low RPM's but becomes alive at WOT. dinan would be good as well.

Thanks.
I think I want something less "exclusive" than the Dixis. I've been waiting for the Corsa, but who knows when thats coming out.
Maybe the Evosport Sport muffler.
