So considering the low production of the 1M, we'll probably only get the choice of one system (most likely the more expensive one), not to mention priced higher.

I'm gonna ball-park $6000+
$6K is too aggressive of a guess, why would it actually cost more than the one for the M3, which is even more complicated, has more materials, etc.? And they would be pricing themselves out if the exhausts costs 15% of the car. We sre not talking about an exotic car here.

A lot will depend on the Euro conversion, which is not helping one bit, but I'd venture it has to be way less than $6K, prolly half that, if they want to have meaningful sales.
