I like it! Really hoping some good after market exhausts start to come out for the M40i soon.

I've never heard of this company. Anyone have experience with them? I do like the sound of the exhaust.

We don't have the filter here in US, but I do love the Quad tips!

Wonder if they compared the flap opening/closing on the left hand side? The camera was focused on the right tip... :

Also confused for the fact that this is an early 2018 model based on placement of the badges... so they put the petrol filter in there already in those early models?

Sounds good. I think dAHLer makes some great products. Yeah, def waiting for some more aftermarket exhausts to hit the market soon.

Video looks a bit odd to me, looks like it is a still image with a soundtrack, wouldn't there would be a slight vibration on the tips?

How did this become front page news when there is no new information about this system? :

LOL - I was wondering about the same... seems like Host is posting a lot more X3 threads on the News lately... maybe they finally realized the X3 is one of the most popular BMW model?

That's a great point! Euro 6k is almost the difference between a fully loaded M40i to a base X3M in US...

I liked the sound but definitely not for 6k no matter if that is in euros or dollars!

I'm a big (huge) fan of supersprint products, have them fitted currently in e39 and e46.

Looking up on their site for what's currently available for X3,

Patiently waiting for more...

Which one?

And where does this downpipe go, replace in the stock exhaust setup?

Perhaps i should as a starter jump into the the Supersprint downpipe.
