Sure! Sounds good. My car is at my work (dealer) getting some fluid leaks fixed, should be done either tomorrow or Tuesday. P.M. me and we can meet up this weekend or something. Can plan a get together with the other local M5 Board members.
If you get evolve tubular headers, it maintains the equal length 'primarys' header design.. The sound will remain V10 S85, that everyone loves.
Its when you go evosport style header, non equal length primarys, you begin to lose the V10 sound for a V8ish sound..
At this point in the S85 tuning game, The evolve tubular header and Supersprint headers are the best in the game. Evolve more so, as for the price and they are made by Supersprint so its a win win.
Another option would be the oem header with no cats, RPI and Evolve offers them.
Even with Evolve's tubular headers the sounds changes from factory, just a tad bit. If you want to preserve the note as close as possible a de-cat of the factory stock pipes will give you just that. That's what I ended up doing just buying a set of stock headers already de-catted. I love how it turned out. Install was a pain in the rear, no doubt about that! Took my tech and I a good portion of the day but that was with a lot of distractions along the way. But SO worth it! Have some video clips of the sound and my exhaust shooting flames, just look at my thread history and you'll see the link.
