Break-in period for Eisenmann exhaust volume?

I just picked up my M5 on saturday from having an Eisenmann Race exhaust installed (round tips). To give you some background information, I did my homework and decided through peoples reviews of the system, and videos that I will definitly not be disappointed. One thing I have to say is that it is LOUD, videos don't do any justice. I Love it, my dad thinks it's ridiculous.

My question is, is there really a break in period for it or is what I hear what I get?
Also, I feel bad because I was the one that did a good job of pursuading my dad into getting the install, so if there is anything that I can tell him that would make him feel a little more happy with the decision that would be nice.

Tell him that as he gets older his hearing will start to go out an it won't seem nearly as loud. Or, as he gets older and more senile, he won't care! Or, now he will know when you are sneeking out of the house at 3 in the morning or, when you're getting home at 5am.

There is no break-in period. Yeah, I know they (Eisenmann) say there is but I did not notice any difference after a few hundred miles. It is LOUD and it will stay LOUD. I liked it (sport version) but it was a bit too much fro me so I removed it.

Cheers ///

Hahahaha.
I dont understand what he doesnt like about it.
He has a 67 vette with sidepipes and at 6 grand in that car my ears start ringing.
Then again he never said "I dont like it" he said "It's louder than I thought" and by his tone it wasn't in a good way.

Yeah, thats why I asked the question. It's cool I mean, I don't think either of us have givin it enough time. I did just get it saturday. however, one thing I do love about it is it absolutly turns heads on the road. I have 20" RadEnergies on the beast also, people love it. So do I, its honestly a car of my dreams.

Is it only the Eisenmann Race mufflers...or the x-pipe and the mufflers?

People always say the exhaust will "break in" and get a little louder over time, but I've never really experienced that and had one change very much over time, and I've had lots of different exhausts on different cars.

In my opinion the biggest change will be from the first 10 miles to the next 300 miles.

When I put the Britalman system on (x-pipe and mufflers) my E39 M5 I noticed that the sound did change some after the first 300 miles because the inside of the pipes got sooted up...the sound changed slighty to a richer toned sound.

Hope this helps.

Oh, by the way...awesome car! A new E60 M5 with Eisenmann and 20" Radenergies! Sweet!

Photos?

My Eisenmann Race hasn't changed a bit. At least not noticeable at all.
