    Any one on here had any experience/heard a status gruppe exhaust.

    I’m looking to get rid of the ‘rasp’ I know some of you will shoot me down for that. Along with getting a throaty note.

    Status Gruppe do a rasp eliminator pipe, does this upset any of the cars emissions?

    They also offer two backboxs a V1 and a SCZA, anyone know the difference and which one would work best?

    Thanks

    I have just fitted the SCZA back box earlier this week with the 76mm single wall stainless tips and all I can say is it’s by far the best sounding exhaust you’ll fit to an M3 imo. It doesn’t enhance the rasp or make it sound like some nasty fart can nor is it intrusively loud, it just gives a nice deep note with no drone, build quality is excellent and it like a glove but do bare in mind the V1 is much louder.

    Rasp eliminator pipes are usually for US cars after they decat their headers (they go in section 1 of the exhaust after the headers). The standard cats already eliminate rasp on euro cars, in section 1.

    The only real way of eliminating rasp is a bigger resonator and an X pipe combination, which supersprint sell (section 2 / centre pipe).

    Brilliant, thanks for the replies.

    Am I right in thinking that the supersprint X pipe introduces a drone?

    The resonated one shouldn't, but the unresonated might depending on your sensitivity. I would go resonated for what your are after, and combine with that backbox...

    I do believe so yeah but then again any single pipe section 2 will create a little drone some worse than others.

    Status Gruppe also do a res and non res section 2 maybe worth a look.

    Milltek centre does a good job at reducing the rasp too in my experience, had one for a while with my OEM backbox.

    I e just ordered an Eisenmann and must have looked at approx 250 you tube vids the status gruupe exhaust is very loud regardless of what box you get, obviously exhaust noise is very personal and some my want loud/quiet but the status gruupe ones were really loud, there’s tons of vids on you tibe

    The V1 is quite loud yes but I can ensure you the SCZA is not very loud and does not drone at all.

    Like I said in my post the noise is subjective, I think it was loud, for example I test fitted a scorpion rear box and I thought that sounded awful/droney and loud, horses for courses, we like what we like. In all honestly I think people need to hear the exhausts in real life which obviously isn’t always possible as you can’t get a true reflection off a vid, and there are so many different manufactures out there it’s tough, rasp or rasp, de cats sound awful/tinny imo other people love it. I found it really difficult to decide and I’ve been looking for about a year
