Thanks! Took me some $ and time, but I finally figured out why yours sounded better. It's the SS non-stepped style headers (as opposed to euros) that give that purr/growl and you being uncatted and only 1 resonator that makes it so aggressive. My euro cats really tame it down, so it still doesn't sound as good as yours, but certainly the same type of sound.

Not keeping it long as SS v1s are on the way, but I'm glad I finally cracked something lol!

Moral of the story - euro/csl/AA/Megan headers give a more racey/manic/raspy note and SS and the replicas more of the deep purr/rumble.

Unfortunately, as much as I like the SS sound from the outside, I actually miss the raspy howl of the euro headers from the cockpit. I'm torn lol

Anyone know why the engineers only put one resonator instead of two?

Im thinking of doing two yonaka resonators followed by two highflow cats at the end of my section 1. My section 2 will have EVC's and my Section 3 will be stock. We'll see how it sounds before summer.

I do not have the videos but there are some on YouTube.
I was really debating whether I should keep my stock setup or go with Eisenmann.
I am so glad I did, the engine seems to rev more freely and the sound is just much better IMO.
Not too loud in the cabin (when it is warmed up), it is kind of loud from outside but perfect for my taste.
I daily my M3 so I am extremely picky when it comes to sound level.
I highly recommend this exhaust if you haven't tried before, high quality stuff.
Mine is Sport version btw.
