Armytrix cat back 540i g30 reliablity ;(

Ok lads. Ive decided to update you about poor armytrix exhuast.

It cos me nearly 4k after 20.000miles (6months) the exhuast sound now like a (damaged muffler).

Didnt last long enough. 1x autobhan trip at speed of 120mph ( cruising). 6h driving.

Ive took it to local exhaust shop... TO FIND OUT THAT EXHUAST WAS FILLED WITH CHEAPEST FIBRE GLASS. WHICH DONT LAST LONG IN SPORTY CARS... Got clogged and melted and no longer does it job what suspposed to...

You are paying premium price for exhuast and they use.. cheapest inside..that dont last.

BE WARN !.

Exhuast from local garage for less than 1k. Sounds better .. much better..

By akrapovic/schnitzer. (Had them both) in other cars which I really drove hard... didnt fail me like armytrix...k

Sorry to hear that mate. I just picked up my 540i this morning and am looking for a new exhaust, but not sure which direction to go in.

I suggest you to avoid armytrix. Dosent last long enough.
Try ac schnitzer + akrapovic sport cat (its listed as for m140i and 240i but fit pefect 540i)

Or remus + sport cat. (In price of armytrix you will get nic sound and much better throotle response).


Cat less stinks..


Local garage replaced inside (cheap crap fibre glass inside that melt and burn away.. ). On monday I will be testing it

Hope to it bring it back to its glory. Local garage uses diffrent stuff (been given lifetime warranty on that fill ).
