FYI - you cannot void a warranty by making simple mods to your car. You can only be denied warranty coverage IF an issue develops with the car and BMW can directly attribute the issue to the modification.

Cut off the stock cans and install OEM M5 cans. Really adds sound to the car and has working flapper so there is no drone.

I am in the same situation with my 550i.
LFTW8S can you please estimate the cost and do you have clip/video of the sound of this mod?

I was looking to install the GTHaus and asked the SA for a quote on the install. He informed me it would void the warranty and I stopped looking.

If the mods don't void the warranty what can they claim would not be covered? If the engine had problems could they blame the exhaust?

Love the car but have been looking for a the next because if the non-existent exhaust note. Trying to convince myself I can go to the F-type R next and have the factory growl.

I really love the sound of this exhaust even though I wish I could find something less expensive... http://gthaus.com/ver3_ghprice.php?s...t#.VY1vkflVi5I

I agree. the F-type R is probably the best sound that comes straight from a factory. (excluding more expensive supercars)

Good to know about the warranty. I am also leasing a 2015 550i so I wonder if even if we don't care voiding the warranty. will the dealer charge you something at the time of returning the car?

Also, Mine is 550i and you said 550x what is the difference? mine has AWD as well and the window sticker mentions x-drive.
