540i Remus installed

Hi,

If you wondered how it sounds ....short video is here:



At first it was very quiet....it gets louder and louder....
This is the ECE approved version (axle back only).
I hope today i will be able to get resonator deleted and upload another video.
Difference between axle back and cat back system in original is that original has 2 pipes (no resonator) going to exhaust as one pipe before it connects exhaust..... in this way you can pass your MOT and be loud day after ....
hope sound will not be bad with resonator removed and at least little louder with few more pops and bangs

Looking forward to the sound with the resonator removed. I was thinking of doing the same or going with mpe and resonator delete. 👍

Am I right in thinking you need to buy the m550i diffuser separately to fit in the quad pipes?

Did you have to cut the OEM exhaust or is the Remus box a simple bolt on part? The guy at Remus UK didn't know, which was a bit concerning!

Cheers

It would be nice to upload video after the car idle instead off while it still running it (cold start phase).

Thanks

sorry, haven't been here for a while.
Yes you need to cut OEM exhaust ,but the Remus is bolt on (pipe with clamp).
You need bmw 550i diffuser to fit your new Remus as it is big.
If you need any more info send message on +385916206020 viber/whatsap

I have been away for a while. I will upload some new videos.
Meanwhile car was mapped and exhaust note has much more burble on SPORT and almost none on Comfort as I made (MHD) map in that way.

I see you are using the Akrapovic 100mm tips. Mind I ask where you got them from? Also, noticed you had a different diffuser on (not the M550i one)...I'm currently looking at replica M5 diffuers (like this). The seller states a 9.25" opening at the bottom (seems like the top is around 8"). 100mm is roughly 3.93", so 200mm + 10mm between the pipe and to each sides is about 230mm or 9"...seems like it'll clear the bottom and center, but not the top. Anyway, which diffuser do you have and how is the fitment with the tips you have and the Remus exhaust?
