    Billy Boat Exhaust

    I know many of you go to bimmerpost too. But some of you might be more willing to chime in here.

    Anybody here familiar with the Billy Boat exhaust? I know they have some great reviews for the E46 M3 and E39 M5. Quality seems top notch and its backed up by warranty so its the whole deal. However sound-wise there just isn't enough videos to really make a decision. I was gonna go with Gintani Sport, but after hearing the only video of the Billy Boat taking off, they sound very similar and the price is pretty much UNBEATABLE!

    That is a good price, the list price is similar to the RPI exhaust:

    I'd personally go with the RPI due to my personal experience with it but the Billy Boat is the only other exhaust priced that well for an axle back. Seems like a nice piece and sounds good, although more subdued than the other options:





    Can't go wrong for the price...

    sticky u really like the RPI? ive heard your car at the shop when you first brought it there and that exhaust made a gnarly pinging tinny sound, like there was a little metal ball stuck in the muffler, like it was broken.

    I know they make good power thou

    Sticky how would you compare the RPi with the Gintani? I have RPi's X Pipe and theyre raspy as $#@!. I want something deep, hence I was considering Gintani since I've heard the RPi exhaust can be raspy. Naturally I would expect any exhaust on this engine to be raspy, but I don't go to many BMW meets and don't spot too many M3s with exhausts here in Miami, so I've only ever heard a custom exhaust, an Active Autowerke, and a Meister. GT. That's pretty much it.

    Just sounds bad when cold.

    Great sounding exhaust once warmed up plus I had the V1, the V2 is better with that. For the money, it is the best full system out there.
