So clueless. Titanium is more expensive than steel, that's one reason why it costs more. Secondly it's hand made. Third, since when are people only allowed to buy German parts for a German car?

I'd take this axleback over most of those "premium German tuners".

So dongless.

If you see the value in a hand made titanium exhaust on your car go to town. No where did I say people are only allowed anything I was stating that there may be better options.

You didn't just say that - you said specifically German and American tuners were better options than the Japanese. That's going to push buttons.

Looks amazing... but to me that would be a complete *waste* of money. If you can spend that much for muffler, why not just spring for a M3 from the get go?

I like it! Well played sir.

To the haters I say - think of the last time you spent a $200 for a dinner.....multiply it a few times.....everyone does it - and yet we seem to justify that as worth it.

It's all relative.

My limit will be about $1000 (CP-E me thinks).....but that's 'cause I can't afford $2,000.

M3 vs 135i is a topic by itself - perhaps the man prefers a twin-turbo six, in a smaller package.....that goes just as fast with a few mods.

lol please tell me where you can buy a M3 for $43k

I wouldve bought Dixis exhaust even if I got a M3.

No where in my post does it say that.

To clarify for you, my point is if you are going to spend big bucks why would you opt for a Japanese tuner over a German one who are equal in price buy have much more experience with German vehicles, warranties, etc? Personal taste aside, I think it is a legitimate question.

Beautiful exhaust. I love the look of Titanium exhausts. For what it's worth, the Dinan exhausts are hand-made as well.

Looks great, best by far... Quality is top notch. Pending it sounds better than stock and you can afford it, I say why not?

I also love the look and sound that only a Ti exhaust can produce.

I HATE YOU! I would hate you more if you got the other can...

Nice, just keep an eye on the mounting locations. Apparently their welds really really suck A-hole.

Sounds INCREDIBLE!
