I've installed the Hamann exhaust. The sound is great both inside the car and out. The quailty of the welds and metals was first rate.
The Tubi sounds the best out of all aftermarket exhaust I have heard. It has a bass rumble at idle and a higher pitch wail at full throttle very similar to a Ferrari 355. It has a noticable power increase as well by the seat of the pants. It is much lighter and looks good too. You can buy direct from Tubi for $2100.00 USD and they will ship COD.Originally posted by JEM:
Y'know...I generally don't consider myself to be the kind of person who'd buy an exhaust for the sound...but there's no question that the M5's exhaust could stand to be a little further forward in the orchestra.
I had occasion to listen to the Kelleners exhaust when we stopped in Dinslaken, and was suitably impressed both by the sound and the appearance. I figure I'm going to have to have one sooner or later.
Sell it to some unsuspecting sap and buy a Tubi. It's worth it for sound and performance !!Originally posted by guss:
I have to disagree about the Hamann exhaust. I have had mine for a few months. I detect no appreciable difference in sound from the stock exhaust either from the interior or exterior of the car. There is some benefit in the aesthetics and some weight savings, but, overall, I consider this installation to have been an almost total waste of over $2000. Unfortunately, this was the only system available and I went more by Hamann's reputation than by considering that the Euro manufacturers might be under stricter sound regulations that we have here in the USA and wouls, therefor, produce quieter systems. Damn!
No, I'm just a poor dumb lawyer. I have had them on two Ferraris I have owned in the past. When I heard a Tubi on an M5 about two weeks ago I was reminded just how good they sound so I ordered one for my 2000 M5. You really can't explain the sound until you hear it. It's the closest sound to an F1 car you can get on a street car. You owe it to your self to hear one before buying any other aftermarket exhaust.Originally posted by jlvink:
