    RDsport releases full F10 M5 S63TU V8 exhaust including downpipes, x-pipe, and rear section - $8,028.00

    Here is the RDsport exhaust for the F10 M5 with the S63TU V8. This is a full exhaust system going all the way from the turbos back with downpipes, x-pipe, and a rear section. The system looks pretty good, not the prettiest BimmerBoost has seen, but the appearance is solid. The pricing on it does not make it much of a value with retail at $8,028.00 with an estimated 8 hour install. 8 hours to install this? Really? How many breaks is that guy taking?

    The real question is, what are the power gains for the full system? Well, no dyno so we really don't know. The "claim" is that the gain is 21 horses at the crank. Asking for $8k without a dynograph to accompany the system is something RDsport should know better than doing. Pictures of the full system below.

    Holly hell, 8k for a claimed 21 crank hp. The sound better be a panty dropper.

    LOL - that's absurd pricing. I guess 95% of the people buying this don't understand what this is/what it should cost, but still. And then the 8 hours of installation? Does that include the time to manufacture the freaking thing? Wow. If it's titanium, I guess the price is better - but even then, absurd.

    Value has nothing to do with price. It is an unintangible you get from something. It is expensive, but I am certain that Fredrico will have a dyno for you soon. Looks good. A full system for $8, 000 or an Akra exhaust for $8, 000? I think I know what actually makes sense.

    For that money, Akra will win every damn time. Akra's products at least double as works of art once you swallow the huge price tag.

    Yes a $8k sound clip would be nice.. I'm trying to think of all the cool things I could buy with $8k. Isn't the Weistec M157 turbo upgrade $8,500?

    That looks like 2-3K at the most. 8 is just absurd.

    i'm so sick of seeing companies rip people off on products just because it's a BMW. pull any car off the road and it's going to work the same way as a BMW. an air pump makes exhaust gas and then it travels through pipes out the back end. don't care if you're driving a BMW or a Honda, it still works the same way so why do Honda exhausts, with just as good welds, cost so much less? BMW owners should get out of their comfort zone sometime and take a trip to a reputable exhaust shop and see how much they would charge to build their exhaust. it's pathetic to think a company could knowingly charge 8k for an exhaust. what's more pathetic? there will be buyers, i promise.

    Even if the exhaust was titanium it would still be a rip off.

    They have a great name definitely and their exhaust work is quality but these are just pipes. Essentially, tubes of metal.

    I mean for people into name brands Akrapovic is great but there will be many alternatives for this car offering a much greater value and likely more power. The car is new so we will see who has what but the area people are going to be picking up power in is going to be toward the front of the car, not the back.
