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.

And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them bleed deeper in something that's larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by the storytellers -- by the loyalty, by the memory of those who honor him, and make the running the man did live forever" (J.Hellwig)
