First, has anybody tried this exhaust, if so, what is your opinion of it? Second, has anybody tried or thought of connecting the exhaust valve activation with the M button?

TIA,
Barrett

Actually I have been considering this exhaust for a while. I just wish I could hear one before I commit to it! After I spoke to BJ from vividracing (It seems they are the primary authorized dealer for Agency Power Exhaust), I earned more trust in the setup. I particularly asked him if I could mount a button somewhere in the car, and avoid using the remotes (I don’t like the remote Idea for exhaust!), and he said that was possible!
I honestly think your idea rocks! It would be very nice as an alternative to the remotes! BJ was very informative and knowledgeable, and I am sure he will be very open to your idea, and I think it is very likely for them to be able to make it happen!<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com<img src=" /><o:p></o:p>
I would love to see that!
Thanks for sharing your idea!

I spoke with Ryan at Agency Power and he said that the system can also be connected to the throttle position switch, which would activate the baffles at a specific point. Not a bad idea, but I think if this forum pools on it's collective knowledge, we can come up with a solution. Dan (Vivid Racing), are you listening?:hihi: Your project car is asking for an upgrade!! BTW, I want to give a shout out to Dan, the 997TT is running better than ever with your Softronic tuning, you guys are AWESOME!

Cheers,
Barrett

Let's find out how redic is your price?!
I saw your for sale post, but you are not putting a $$ figure on it!

Cool! Thanks! We'll keep that in mind!
Agency Power Electronic Valve Controlled Exhaust is offering more than just the sound and performance. For that reason, it is an appealing exhaust to certain group of buyers, and not all! I am sure AA gen. 2 is an excellet exhaust and the price is right, but when someone is looking at Electronic Valve Controlled Exhaust, that means different expectations!
I would suggest you edit the for sale post, and put the price on it, rather than just asking for people to shoot you an offer! that way you might get more attention to your ad! In case you have difficulties finding your "For Sale" post, here is the link:

http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/sale-wanted/168305-like-new-active-autowerkes-gen-2-exhaust.html

No offense, but no more solicitation on other fellow ///M owner's thread please!

So now, let's focus back on the Agency Power Electronic Valve Controlled Exhaust! Shall we?!

FYI, the X5M and X6M have a valve in the OEM exhaust, which is activated by the [M] button and produces a slightly louder, and much deeper tone.

I believe they are vacuum controlled; nonetheless, I'm sure there is no way to retrofit (if that's what you're thinking). Come on guys, someone has to have the answer I'm looking for!:biggrinbounce:

It could be done, my guess is you would have to hardwire a line directly from to the M switch the the vacuum control box that is provided with the exhaust. Just time consuming but awesome in the long run.

Would be pretty cool. If anyone is interested we just got two more exhausts done, can be shipped today.

I'm working on it right now. I've track the hot lead from the M button on the steering wheel. Then from there I'm adding a 5 second relay which will open and close the exhaust valve when the M mode is on and off.
