Yes. I heard one on a car at the M5 driving experience. It does sound very similar to a stock 355 sound. A burbling sound at idle that increases in pitch as the revs increase. At full throttle it has that high pitch wail like a Ferrrar V-8. I would orderone now if I were you. It seems like its going to take 3 months from date of order to delivery.Originally posted by GradX:
Parkerfe: have you actually heard the Tubis on an M5 yet? Is it anything like the 355 stock sound?
If so, I'll just go ahead and order now.
Yes I had heard it wasn't going to be until 2001. Then I saw one in Spartanburg and found out that you could order one from Canada for $3600 U.S. Here they will only cost $2100 U.S. so I decided to wait and order one from Tubi in the U.S.. By the way, are you going to Road Atlanta this weekend ?Originally posted by GradX:
Did you go to the M5 experience recently? I remember you posting back in late August that Tubistyle was coming out with m5 exhausts in 2001 but then you mentioned hearing them so I was kinda confused.
Old cars..yes. But there will be old F1 cars(from 70s and 80s) running as well as Indy, Cart, CanAm and others.Originally posted by GradX:

As far as Road Atlanta this weekend, I probably won't be there unless I'm really bored. Old cars just aren't my thing.
Its not as big as PLM. I move around the track to look at different views of the cars. If you're coming I'll be on the look out for you. I'll be in a jet black M5 eith Ga. tag# FEP. Honk if you see me.Originally posted by GradX:
How big is the event? Will it be as crowded as the Petit Lemans? And where is the best place to watch. Oh and which day/time do you suggest to meet.
