Borla? Which is better quality? I am placing my order today and these are the two I've narrowed it down to. I've heard the Borla before and I liked it, though the resonance at 3k rpm is sorta tough to deal with. Alot of people seem to have gone with the borlas. Anyone with Eisenmann experience? Thanks.<p>Jeff

The tips are so large that it is very hard to adjust them perfectly in the middle of the cutout in the rear skirt. We installed one on Jask's car and had to heat the pipes up with a torch and bend them to get the alignment right. Mine won't budge from far left and once in a while it bangs against the skirt at cold idle creating an annoying thudding sound for a few minutes. I love the growl of the Borla and have had no annoying resonance problems at any RPM. The Borla is a great unit and is very high quality with a great warranty (million mile). I have never heard or seen an Eisemann, but I have heard great things and wouldn't mind giving one a try. I think Bekkers has them on sale currently?<p>Very very snug fit.<br><img src="http://www.bayareamotorsport.com/~jack/borla/dsc00857.jpg"><p><img src="http://www.bayareamotorsport.com/~jack/borla/dsc00859.jpg"><p><br>Brandon Wheaton<br>1989 E30 M3<p><i><br>Borla?

<i><br>I will email you some pics tonight when I get home if you like.<br>I purchased mine through Reuter Motorsport in Germany and had it installed when the car was still in Europe before shipping it out here.<br>The fit, sound and quality is first class.<br>Jim

I really do like the Borlas, but I'd like to try the Eisenmann...just ordered one from Bekkers. It'll probably be a month or so before I get it installed as the p/o of my car welded the old muffler on...so I have to bring it to the mechanics to get that taken care of. I'll post my thoughts on this exhaust once installed and I've had some time to drive a bit. Thanks for your input Jim.<p>Jeff

I decided to go with the Eisenmann. I'll post my thoughts on this exhaust once I've had it installed and drive around a bit. Thanks for your input.<p>Jeff

<i>I currently have a Raven exhaust on my M3(it came that way when I bought it) and I love the sound-I think it is the best sound I have heard on the E30 M3-I may be biased!. I drilled two small holes in it at the bottom of the bend to let condensation/water drain out(DTM tips). The Eisenmann was great quality and even better sound. It took a few months before the exhaust started to sound like I wanted it to. At first it was just a little louder than stock.<br>Scott<br>Borla? Which is better quality?
