New borla cat back exhaust!

Hey guys, Borla came up with a cat back exhaust system for the E63/e64. Looks amazing! I'm so curious about the sound. It has the double canister exhaust. I think I may bite the bullet.

What do you think?

I know, Magnaflow price isnt bad, but I dont think the system compares. I always liked the Borla look and more important, the sound. They use austenitic stainless steel, which is a better grade then the T-409. The exhaust is a double canaster... This looks like it would be classified in the range of the Eisenmann or Meisterschaft caliber.

I just did the Magnaflow install last week and have no complaints, but to be honest if I knew Borla had that setup for my car I would have gone with it despite the price.
I looked into Super sprint and Remus and all were cool but I decided to go with Magnaflow because I have used them in the past and the shop specialized in them.

Say's fitment is M6, nothing about 650. Borla website says no applications for 650.

The 650i is 2 1/4 and the M6 is 2 1/2. A good exhaust shop can make it work!

I would do a little research into how much work is involved in installing an M6 exhaust on a 650.

For starters you will need to cut the bumper to get the dual tailpipes to fit. The exhaust canisters themselves should fit no problem but the mid-pipes may have to be tossed and custom pipes made, not because of diameter but maybe due to different routing of pipes on the M6 - transmission differences etc....

I would send albertoxikitin a PM, he has installed an M6 exhaust in his 650 and I think he did everything himself.

I spoke to one of the guys at Mod bargins and he told me to ditch the Borla and bite the bullet do the axle back Eisenmann... Only a few hundred more. He said the Borla may be stupid loud, where the Eisenmann will give that high end, high pitched sound to match the car... I dont know.

Hey Alberto, I would jump on a Tubi exhaust in a second. You know if he is still selling it? Those are top notch... just with a crazy price tag!! I just seen his post... dide is in Kuwait though! lol

BTW, just to post what Alberto sent me in PM, for the forum:

Hi Greco. Yes i have M6 exhaust but the are just the mufflers not the complete line. You can install them...but the only thing is the M6 mufflers have the pipe a little bigger thant the oem pipe. but you can use a reduction pipe. I hope its help...

Your a stud buddy, thanks for the reply!

The Eisenmann exhaust will definitely give the car a more refined deep and throaty note that belongs on a BMW. You'll also going to get something that fits the car without any fitment issues!

FYI: M6 mufflers will sit much further out when installed on a 645/650, as there is a difference of several inches in the bumpers. Additionally, you'll have to widen the openings for the muffler tips to accomadate the quad tips. IMHO:This can be done to look right by a professional shop, but its far more involved then simplie bolting some aftermarket M6 mufflers in place.

Check out the fitment of a 645 with M6 supersprints, this is not an ideal fitment/out come.

I guess it may be best to go with a 650i muffler then. Eisenmann makes one with the round tips. I like the oval ones though, but that may only come on the M6 version.
