cold air intake and exhaust

I'm having trouble finding a new cold air intake system and high performance exhaust for my 750. Dinan is not ready. Has anyone else had any luck? thank you. kt

Don't know about cold air intake but both Hamann and AC Schnitzer offer performance exhaust.

the pipes from gthaus are very sexy underneath. you can see how the front is clamped and the back is welded. Sound is deeper inside but no drone and a bit more throaty from the outside, but i would say decibels only increased about 10-15% from stock. I hear taking out those two resonators will increase another 35% louder, but i am happy with how it is now. you can't have too much of a beast in a large sedan, it just won't look right.

Wow great to hear. Is there any chance you might be able to post a sound/video clip?

actually it didn't really do much nor does it even sound good. i tried taking the videos but couldn't get a good recording, and also i lost a copy of the older one to compare stock vs after work. i haven't been posting for some time since this is my wife's family car, so i'll try to post before the year end if i have a chance. i'm getting the dinan upgrade done on her car next week since i have some reason for downtime on the car, after it's all done i'll repost some videos.
