Smile Best aftermarket exhaust for a 550i M Sport

Ok I've listened to just about everything on YouTube in regards to different aftermarket exhausts for the 550i. Tell me if there is anything better or menacing then the Meisterschaft GTC exhaust? It sounds the best IMO.

I would love someone to post a Vid on something better or aggressive. Eisenmann, Borla, Remis, Flowmaster, MagnaFlow, SuperSpring, etc. Akrapovic even. Anyone suggest anything better? I would love to hear it!!!

Eisenmann is going to be second only to the Meisterschaft. If you want an aggressive sound I recommend looking into a downpipe change with the new rear muffler section

Either one will work, Meisterschaft is usually the more agressive of the two but Eisenmann will sound good as well. Whats great about Meisterschaft is the GTC systems is a valve controlled system so its only loud when you want it to be.

Here is the Eisenmann without downpipes

and here it is with the AR design downpipes

And the Meisterschaft with AR downpipes:

Are those catless down pipes? Will it still pass emissions inspection? I may get this set up if it passes inspection

Good question about passing emissions...not sure. Does anyone have any feedback on a SuperSpring exhaust??

If your state runs a sniffer test you probably won't pass. If its a visual inspection the converters are tucked up pretty high on the back of the motor so there might be a good chance its over looked.

I live in Kansas and once a car is originally inspected it never has to be ever in its life again... so that makes things easy.

Yes they are catless so sometimes they won't pass inspection, but you would have to check with your local DMV or whoever does the testing. Here in California, we can't have any modification to the OEM catalytic converter.

AR design does have a 5" and 3" catted version that might pass depending on your local laws.

How about no mufflers, cutting them off and just replacing them with SS pipe and polished tips?
After researching many exhausts, thats what I did that on my 2102 535Xi, and it sounds amazing. It's very aggressive sounding, loud but not obnoxious.
I was told AFE had the most aggressive sounding exhaust for the 535i at least.
I figured if I didn't like it, it wouldn't be a big deal spending $200, since I was going to scrap the stock exhaust anyway.
The 550i I'm sure will be louder, but if you don't go with a downpipe, it might be a low cost alternative to great sounding exhaust?
imho...
Has anyone tried this??

I have seen some individuals do this, some like it and others don't. More often than not what I see is this creates excessive cabin drone at cruising speeds and the individual ends up swapping that out for a complete system.

You might want to check out the LSD motorsports full exhaust system. Costs less than everything listed above and is from the downpipes back. Complete system. simple google search on videos and you will know.

Hey thanks! I just listened to a YouTube vid. Sounds great! LSD Motorsports has them for $1900 it appears. I might have to give them a call. Thanks again!
