Sounds great. Quite possibly the best road/field for an exhaust test.

why can't they make it sound like their M3 one? how much are you willing to pay for something that sounds like that? sounds bad ass!

Yeah that M3 one sounds amazing.

But the 1M one, eh. It pretty much sounds 95% identical to mine when I have the Berk Full Street and 4" Catless Downpipe.

to be honest... after hearing their other exhausts... i expected a little more depth but not bad at all. Maybe i just need to hear it in person haha

The 1M exhaust sound has never really sounded well on video (to me that is), but irl I loved it! So I guess eisenmann must be quite the same, I like it in the video, so real life must be killer if we use the rule of three!

Same configuration? Same size? Number of cylinders isnt the only determining factor in sound

Wait for a sound clip of the Eisenmann cat-back along with some mid pipe's that should make a significant difference in sound.

Just the fact that one is a V6 and the other an I6 is the biggest factor in sound between the two cars. It's going to be easier to emulate the V8 sound with a V6. I personally love the sound of the I6!

As good as this sounds, I think I'd rather wait to see if BMW Performance makes an exhaust for this car - I think their N54/N55 exhausts for the 135/335 sound awesome
