exhaust is there anything other than eisseman (sp?) available in US?

hey ive been looking to price out exhaust for my '11 35i, but its seems everyone has the freaking eisseman! from the vids i seen that sound isnt really what i can tell to be what i want.

Milltek sounds good to me, but you cant find anything that you can get in the states?? not even just milltek, but i mean is there ANY other exh systems out there to purchase here???

There are several.
Milltek is available and you can get in the states.
Remus is also available.

They are all so extremly overpriced its ridiculous, I hate companies that do this. Three to four thousand dollars for not even a full cutback is just ludicrous there is nothing even complicated about the z4 exhaust. Remus is just an axle back but its still like 900 and has really ugly tips. I will most likely just make two straight pipes that remove the rear mufflers.

I know you are not interested in the Eisenmann exhaust, however, for clairfication purposes it is a full downpipe back exhaust.

My tip would be to check out Supersprint as well They fabricate the exhaust systems for HARTGE, a very famous and respected European BMW tuner. Their product is as good but much cheaper

Supersprint does make a quality product and we sell a substantial amount of their pieces. With that being said the price point is not cheaper, for an x-pipe section plus the quad muffler you are looking at $3500+. Once again this is neither a bolt-on solution or a cat-back/downpipe-back option.

i went to magnaflows website and didnt see anything listed at all for the Z4, nor could i find one for supersprint, i got ahold of a shop that can get me the milltek for 1600 which is still a freaking arm and a leg for a exhaust, and the eissenman sound just doesnt appeal to me..

The only reasonable option is to have an exhaust shop bend you some pipe.

I think I might just take it to a exhaust shop and have them remove the two rear mufflers hopefully I would come out nice, I'm not sure yet....

Anyone know of someone doing this yet??? I tried searching YouTube but there isn't much at all for z4 with exhaust on there...
