No I'm running a really basic square setup. I might be selling my type 3 soon and go a different route.

Had to move the car earlier, so took a clip with my phone.
Only a short video, didn't want to make too much noise outside my own house!
Now I know how, will be taking some proper videos in due course.

Much better clip of the exhaust, still not revving too much, but gives a better idea of the sound of the Eisenmann.

Don did you change the middle section as well, or is it just the Eisenmann box you have on?

Sounds really beefy great sound.

Just the backbox changed, kept the middle section stock as I didn't want
the possibility of any drone at motorway speeds.

As is, it sounds fantastic IMO, and paired with the AFE, it's loud enough.
Lovely low rumble driving slowly around, and loud roar at higher revs.

Got it second hand too, which was a bonus.

Excuse the amount of photos, just threw them all up :p















Where can I find the single exit rear diffusers like that?

Do you mean an M Tech 2 rear diffuser? You'd have to have the M Tech 2
bumper in the first place. Your local dealer would be able to order you one

Cheers DJ, I'm sure it's not a patch on an M3, but impressive for a little 2.5

Yep, manual heated leather sport seats, and no sunroof.
I guess that means its a little lighter and shaves at least 3 seconds off the 0 - 60 time?

As far as I can tell, the part you need is 51 12 7 894 029

Not sure if that part is available in the US though, as its the diffuser for a 318
