EXHAUST! Help Needed!

Ok guys I need your expert advice on this

I want to go for the eisenmann race section 3 and leave the rest of the exhaust stock. I was wondering, how loud is it inside the cabin? Is there any drone? At cruising speeds (60mph, 90mph-130mph) is it even noticeable?

If it is very noticeable, then what alternatives have a great sound like the eisenmann race but are quiet in the cabin when cruising (only section 3). I do a trip to spain from the UK which is a 22 hour journey. I go the whole way with a few others and we cruise at about 90-130. Would it be fine?

Your Suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Eisenmann race just sec 3 with stock sec 1 & 2 is loud from the outside. The E60 cabin is well insulated and hence why some open the windows to listen to exhaust. You should be ok if you stay in the high gears during your travel.

There is a price to pay for such great sound and there is unfortunately some drone but in the low rpms in lower gears. Crusing 60 mph, 90-130 mph in high gears (5th, 6th or even 7th gear) the exhaust is still there and but not as much and you are able to make a call and have conversation.

Thanks for the response java I also looked at the Agency power valvetronic exhaust, but I think I will go for the E-Race.

Eisenmann, Tubi Exhausts, Borla, Supersprint, Ericsson, Rogue Engineering, Active Autowerks, Kreis-sig are exhausts that cater to the M5

goole search them, and you can go to youtube to listen to sound clips of them.

If you don't want drone, then I would recommend a Dinan exhaust - not sure if they ship internationally. You may need to buy one of a member here that is selling.

You may want to check the For Sale section of this forum.

But which gives the least drone but sounds great? I want it to be loud outside but quieter inside at cruising. However I may just go for an E-Race

The E-race is LOUD. The corsa will give you the least amount of drone but sound good from the outsite. There are plenty of different systems out there and honestly, I have never heard a bad sounding M5 exhaust. It all comes down to your personal preference and what type of performance you are looking for.
