I just wanted to know how it compared to other exhausts:

- You mentioned that there is little to no drone. Have you been in a car with any other aftermarket exhaust? How does the drone compare? (I currently have Eisen Ti)
- How is fitment? Is there any movement for adjustment?
- How does throttle response feel now? Any difference? I noticed a big difference when I had the GruppeM, not so much with the Eisen Ti.

Thanks!

There was way more droning withe the GruppeM for sure. I have seen/heard others systems in person such as Eise Race (not the Ti one however), Borla and the old style Dixis but never spent any time in the car with these so I can't really comment. However, I do have plenty of seat time with both the SS Race and GruppeM so I can comment on these two.

Fitment with the SS is dead on. With my GruppeM, I had to add a spacer block under one of the OEM rubber mounts to space it down as well as slotting the opposite mounting tab about an extra 1/4" to even get it remotely close to lining up. With the SS, I put her in in about 20 minutes and it was perfect. The SS is far superior in terms of fitment.

Throttle response is pretty similar to GruppeM so not much gains in that respect. If there is a 5 rwhp difference between the two mufflers, it is very subtle.

insanely loud in the cabin. Would you recommend this exhaust on a daily driven M3? Also, what are your impressions of the size of the tips? is 80 mm big enough?

thanks!

drive my car daily and experienced headaches with the GruppeM. Not so with the SS Race. It is a nice sound and I can listen to music without going deaf now.

80 mm tips are perfect IMO. Bigger looks ricey and smaller looks wimpy...

resonators. Removing the resonators in theory will make for a louder system.
