here comes a dumb question:

Will the stock exhaust system eventually need to be replaced?

My car has almost 100,000 miles on it so I was thinking that IF the exhaust system will "eventually" need replacing, why not now.

I don't want to have a problem you know.

Everything wears out eventually. But the stock exhaust is built like a tank and made of stainless steel so it will probably outlast the engine and just about everything else in the car.

But if you need justification, I just came back from a 600 mile round trip and I can tell you that to me, the Tubi is worth every penny. It sounds wonderful w/o being so loud that you get tired of hearing it after a couple hundred miles. My wife even said the same thing! :15:

Other, louder exhausts may sound more "impressive" when showing off to friends, but now that I have other transportation, I use my M5 mainly for long distance drives and it never fails to amaze me what a wonderful and complete package this car really is.

Regards,
