I won't even comment on your immature response.
Let me school you, and I'll keep it mature, unlike your infantile & ignorant comment!
Performance exhausts, especially in this case, produce 5 hp and 3 lbs/ft of torque at 6600 rpms.
Bear in mind, there are several unlimited speed limits in Germany. The limited performance numbers, identified supra, are gained while driving at a sustained 6600 rpms, which are speeds highly unlikely and even unattainable in the good old USA.
The BMW PE was made for sustained Autobahn speeds, where you will barely notice a small performance increase at 6600 rpms and above.
If I could see a performance graph, showing no loss of low end torque, where we Americans operate our automobiles, and unless you are racing at 6600 rpms, then the BMW PE would be a purchase for ear candy, exclusively.
Does it not pique your interest why BMW does not provide a performance chart/graph, identifying the small performance increase? Get it? Must I explain this to you as well???
Additionally, if you continue on in life, believing everything you read, then I pity you.
Where did you get that the PE was designed for constant 6600RPMs at high speed on the Autobahn? That seems just as speculative. Most German performance marques design their cars around performance on the Nordschleife these days, for better or worse. Also, most Germans do not drive at a constant 150 mph on the sections of the Autobahn with no speed limits.
Additionally, this system is not a straight pipe. This is just more free flowing and tuned to produce a different sound. It actually looks very similar to the stock exhaust. BMW is not going to produce a performance part that sacrifices low end performance for some high end performance.
