    EXHAUST SYSTEM

    I have read the forum reviews on which exhaust system is best suited for the Z8 Meisterschaft vs.Eisenmann and my mechanic says Eisenmann all the way, still made in Germany, apparently MS made in China? Also he prefers the more European sound of Eis vs. muscle of MS and is less expensive.

    I am open to other exhaust systems just want a nice noticeable but not obnoxious sound and if I can save some $$ at same time even better.

    Thanks

    Keith -not sure if you have read all the threads here about exhausts, but if you use the search function up to right and type "meisterschaft" into it, you will find several discussions and a few video clips (including mine). If you already did that, please ignore... I have the Meisterschaft GT and love it. Nice throaty sound without being obnoxious.

    Thanks - I think itís just right and when I did the video the GoPro was inside to show the tach, so it sounds even better on the outside.

    Hi Keith
    I just fitted a Supersprint exhaust system (Italian made) in London and am very pleased with the enhanced performance (estimated at 30+ HP) and the new tone is really exciting and sweet without being too brash.

    bearing in mind that I converted the Z to RHD in 2011, the replacement exhaust is slightly more complex than on a LHD.

    FYI I terminated the manifolds at the place where the original connection was made by BMW to the original exhaust as closely as possible. Therefore the Supersprint manifold was an almost perfect fit. We did not have to do substantial work to the connection points, although the original RHD manifold connection wasn't millimeter perfect. We didn't have to remove the manifolds.

    You can see some pics and hear the note in one of the videos posted by the workshop at https://www.instagram.com/p/CMzx7IDHbqm/

    Good Luck
