    I want to replace my stock exhaust from the cats back and have been looking at both the Billy Boat (B&B) and the Remus exhaust systems.

    I've had lots of feedback on the B&B stating it's a good exhaust, quite loud, and possibly a little too loud. I've been told that the Remus, which is equal in performance gains, is closer to stock but still offers a nice growl when getting on it and a deeper tone without droning.

    Does anyone have first hand experience with the Remus? It seems a little more appealing to me.

    Finally, does anyone know where I might be able to get a BMWCCA Member discount on the exhaust? I was planning on buying it from BavAuto..

    Thanks in advance.

    I had Remus exhaust on my 91 318is years ago, it rusted out in less than 2 years and they refused to cover it. No more REAM US for me! I have Dinan on my roadster and love it!

    I have heard similar things about the Remus rusting early. A friend had the Dinan exhaust on his M Roadster and it sounded great. BB is pretty loud with some in-cabin droning based on what I have heard.

    my 02....

    Wow! When I went to the Remus site it states that the pipe and muffler was made from 304 stainless steel.

    OK - So I went to the Dinan site and looked at the exhaust, the price is reasonable but I dislike the single exhaust port. Decisions, decisions..

    Well, Supersprint might be another good option or perhaps UUC Motorwerks makes one (they are typically made by Corsa). My biggest complaint with most of the system is the drone that resonates at driving speed on most of them. The Dinan set-up is the only one (at least in my case) that didn't have it.

    I had the B&B pipe on my car and will personally vouch that it drones horribly at about 2,000 rpm.

    I'm now using a Hartge (by Supersprint) and I'm very happy with it. Sounds aggressive, but not obnoxious.

    So far the SuperSprint has been recommened the most by everyone - Looks like I have my answer!

    I have the Remus and have no rusting or anything. 304 stainless and still shines. I have had it for over four years, however the car is garaged.

    I have the Remus on my '01 M Roadster and it drones at 2000 RPM pretty bad, so much so that I down shift or speed up sometimes stop it. No rust issues.

    I'm pretty late to the party, but either the B&B or the SuperSprint will fit if you ever have to fit a dual ear differential mount/trunkfloor reinforcement, and the Remus will not. At least in my experience.

    I have a Magnaflow and happy with its sound and quality. Large dual exit pipes look great
