Thanks - the video doesn't really do it justice. It's a nice mod for not much money. Performance wasn't the goal, so I couldn't see the point in paying a lot for a big name system, and then possibly not be happy with the result. I'd pretty much be stuck with it as it's a very small market here.I think you did well for yours!
Check out this video - 2.5i with exhaust mods.So all of you guys are working with the 3.0i or 3.0si it looks like. I was told theres not much you can do with the 2.5i. Any ideas or is it not worth trying lol
Thanks. Im not really sure where you found that video because I've searched everywhere for videos haha. Yeah it doesn't give much extra, so its probably not really too worth it. Definitely sounds better but probably not enough for me to do that.Check out this video - 2.5i with exhaust mods.
I had to laugh when he dropped it down a gear to give it some noise, and the dog turned and looked at him as if to say 'sweeet'
As the title says, he has removed the resonators and added a Dinan airbox.
Sounds good to me.
Do you mean they cut out the rear muffler? That's what they did to mine, and I'm pleased with the result.If you want a low cost mod to increase sound, you can go to a custom muffler shop and have them cut out your rear resonator. I did this on my 04 Z4 and it gave me a deep sound without being too loud.
I bought the Eisenmann for my '07 3.0si. They make two; I got the quiet of the two, and it it's still louder than stock. Good throaty sound. Got it from a place in AZ (Vivid).Thanks DC for the comments and the link. Wonder if anyone has purchased the Eisenmann product and commented? I'd be a bit wary of ordering from overseas for that kind of product just due to the proliferation of so many products in the USA in contrast.
I'm going to stay on the search. Even my wife told me she thinks the Z4 sounds like a sewing machine...after owning it for eight years, although she loves the speed and handling, she'd like a bit more exterior growl too.
sorry to hear about your father, but 94 is a pretty good innings :thumbup:. I hope it was a good send off.Whew, it's been a few months since I've been on here, had a major Funeral for my 94 yr old military retiree father, full honors Arlington VA. Now on to completing business for the Z4.
Perhaps today, as the "long referred to" mechanic I mentioned several months back will get the opportunity to put on Z4Jon's muffler package I bought from Jon these many months back.
It's great to see the Z4 coming to an end however, I have a lot of pride in this period vehicle even more now that it is going to be discontinued! Love the Z4 without a doubt.
So, will report back, and hope to stick a GoPro vid on this thing to validate the transition.
Will keep this thread in mind and return with some information of satisfaction. I yearn to not hear the sewing machine sound anymore.
Look up in the thread to 3-18-16 where Jon posted the photos of the muffler he sold me. I have that same muffler on my 3.0si but have not posted any photos yet. I will when I have them ready and when I have the video ready. But, it is pretty much identical a fitment as Jon had and sold to me. Hope this helps!Hi Skeep, do you have some pictures? What muffler (and other parts) you finally used? I am considering some mods and would like some ideas
