Im after an stainless steel exhaust system for my 328i, and have seen a SCORPION one its the STW tail-pipe design - because i dont really like the look of the DTM version.

Anyone had any experience with SCORPION?

thanx

Rich, I have just had one fitted to my 94 M3. It is a lot louder than the standard BMW part but I would not say it is excessive. In general it only makes a lot of noise when you are accelerating, but when holding speed on the motorway the car is so well soundproofed you cant hear it.

Outside of the car maybe a different story, but that means letting someone else drive my car..... I don't think so...

Hope this helps

Just out of curiousity, wouldn't a stainless steel exhaust system be heavier than the stock one? Weight = bad! Maybe the difference isn't big, I was just wondering if you had checked.

Usually stainless steel might be a little thinner walled piping, but the steel (usually high quality 304) is stronger compared to the stock steel/iron so in overall mass, it will be lighter...

Most stainless steel exhausts will save you about 25lb. Trust me, if you carry your stock exhaust, then a stainless steel one, you will notice a HUGE difference. I would get a UUC exhaust, I have one, it's the top rated, and it's awesome.

The System U UUC Exhaust was rated #1 by some site listed in these forums. I would check out the Twin Silencer and the System U. If you are going for a more throaty note go for the System U.
