I've got the meisterschaft gt2, and it's brilliant! after the 1 week or so "burn in" period, it sounds intoxicating!
It still BAFFLES me that people are still calling the Mesiterschaft a "knock" off just because of a few uninformed people's ranting and posting back in 2008.
Just because a few individuals blogged about it, now it seems that everyone latches on to their slandering.
It's made in Korea, and therefore fake? What makes it fake? Over half the stuff in our cars, homes, and basically everything in our lives is made in China, India, or other countries. Does that mean everything we have is "fake" because 1 part was made in China?
Two identical M6's: one had a mesiter and the other eisenmann. Is one superior to the other? Maybe in some people's mind I guess.
I've read all the negative posts about gthaus and meisterschaft, but still decided to go w/ meisterschaft. The thing that well all know about the internet is that anyone can post nonsense if they want. It's up to individuals to figure out was is garbage and what isn't.
After having GTHaus help install my exhaust, I had a chance to sit down w/ the owner and chat with him extensively. Long story short, the individuals who started all the slandering posts screaming "fake" back in 2008 had ulterior business motives, and there is potential legal action against them (whole box of litigation papers!). They were the same few individuals posting, but w/ different screen names. It was all traced back the same few IP addresses. (note: I am not stating who or names)
I commend GTHaus for not entering in this back and forth bantering on blogs trying to defend themselves and instead let their product speak for themselves (and legal action).
Clean, solid, and consistent welding w/ their exhaust, beautiful design w/ the tips and split. heck, the Mesiterscahft exhaust doesn't even look remotely close to an Eisenmann!
I chose the mesiterschaft b/c of the higher pitch scream under heavy load. It's my understanding that the meisterscahft has a higher tone under acceleration than the eisenmann. In the beginning, you may think both are loud (compared to stock), and after 1-2weeks, you'll find that it quiets down a bit, and normal driving isn't that abnoxious (WOT is a whole different game). I drove behind my m6 once in my wife's g37 coupe, and it sounds and looks awesome!!! from another driver's viewpoint, the sound is not abnoxiously loud (under normal driving).
I know there aren't any dyno numbers either for the exhaust. Honestly, I was expecting to loose a little low end torque w/ just changing the muffler. but I was willing to sacrifice that for a beautiful sound. I really didn't notice a difference under WOT (hard to tell obviously), but in 1st gear and 7th gear under mild acceleration, it actually felt a bit faster!! Did it actually free up hp (not add, but free)?, or is it the weight saving??? either way, I'm extremely happy it it!
My setup is the same as M6Cabrio - res delete only, but stock cats. If you get the mid section, i think it'll be extremely loud!!
