supersprint race, now its on

As some of you might remeber I ordered an SS race exhaust for my baby and today I got the call telling me it was finally here!
I immediately went to the shop and was eager to have it installed and hearing it.
They were so shiny and nice...light weight...looked really good.
As the guys inspected the undeer side of the car they said they had to cut my stock exhaust to fit the new one and that was a small surprise as I thought (have never seen the car from under) that it was more of a unscrew and screw on...
Anyway, they said it would be no problem welding it back if I wanted to in the future.
the finnished result looks very good allthough the new exhaust is sticking out less then the old one....I wonder if its becuase of the cut or if they are supposed to be slightly shorter....they now stick out about a pinky finger wide from the bumper more or less.

The sound wasnt what I expected to be honest.......
At idle it had a nice bass and I could feel a slight vibration in my seat.
As I left for a longer drive to really check out the sound during different rpms I thought to myself.....what the heck is this?!
I didnt find it that different from stock as I revved it and at that point I got a little dissapointed.....
As I kept on driving I got away from the heavy trafic and could now hear the true sound of it without the disturbing sound of 100s of other cars , busses and trucks and behold.....it sounded really nice!
The sound is more muscular then stock and is loud enough to turn a few heads (stock did too actually) but without beeing disturbing.
During even speed without accelerations you hardly notice its there and for long trips it might be a plus.
Well, enough said.....I wont be postig pictures since we have seen what a couple of exhausts look like but I will try this weekend to do a video/sound shoot and find the best distance/settings to as well as possible hear the sound as I hear it.

well......that was actually my first ever mod (32 years old) and after this I have some other tricks up my sleeve which I will share with you later (got some really good tips from member Mussy who I meet with and had a lot of fun with)

You need to drive your car for a fiew weeks for the exhaust to open up and start to sing.

Please explain to me what happens to an exhaust after a few weeks that changes things. How does it "break in". I'm being honest! I've never understood this but have been reading about the need to drive it a while on many posts on various exhausts.

I cant explain it.. maybe someone with tuning experience can, But I have heard the difference. Maybe you need to heat up the insides of the mufflers for them to start to sound right.

From the video i saw I also kinda of confused about the sound of SS race and the sound is not that far from stock as you said. here few videos one is SS race and the other is Hartge and i do like Hartge over SS race!

I wish there would be another better Hartge exhaust video!

I still think Esseimann is the best sounding exhaust on M5 too bad it has a very bad resonance inside the cabin!

What you guys think?


Hartge
http://video.google.ca/videoplay?doc...E60+m5+exhaust

Idle and inside of Hartge exhaust.
http://video.google.ca/videoplay?doc...22&q=m5+hartge

SS race
http://video.google.ca/videoplay?doc...m5+supersprint

SS race idle and revs + inside video
http://video.google.ca/videoplay?doc...m5+supersprint

Adn the best stock sound i found
http://video.google.ca/videoplay?doc...stock+m5+video

Dunno i like the exhaust that is quite on the inside and does have some good sound outside, I think hartge with Xpipe is slightly better sounding exhaust than SS race.

I think the sound packing inside the mufflers might change shape after driving 200 miles or so. I had customers buying the Supersprint race exhausts and report back in a week or two saying that the exhaust is much more deeper and sometimes louder than day 1.

It should be noted that the Hartge video to which you link is of the Hartge exhaust plus the Hartge powerpipe (whatever that is). I was told by several reputable sources that the Hartge mufflers by themselves are quiter than the SS Race and similar to the SS Sport.

I noticed no change over time in the sound of the SS Race.

I have the Eisenmann Race exhaust on my M6 and there was resonance in the cabin until I removed the secondary cats and replaced with straight pipe. It did away with the resonance I was getting at 3400 rpm. The exhaust is alittle lower and louder with out the cats the link below takes you the post on the M6board and has video links how it sounds before and after 2ndry cat delete.

Secondary Cat Delete-great mod!
