With this plenum you’ll end up with a beautiful CSL style noise that becomes intoxicating after getting the plenum installed. Depending on your driving style, you’ll really enjoy hearing your car at high RPM’s where the induction noise really shines.

Our favorite feature about this setup is that you’re able to display the S65 at car shows, gatherings and in photographs in a way that stands out from many others. The gloss carbon fiber finish really stands out in the sunlight and helps this engine bay come to life.

You get the best of both worlds where your driving experience changes, your M3 has a much deeper and throatier sound and it looks absolutely stunning when you pop up your hood.

The history of Eisenmann speaks for itself, especially when they’ve designed OEM systems for Porsche and AMG’s.

With this system you can gain up to 16hp and 11lb-ft of torque, which can make a difference on an NA V8. When you start to modify the exhaust note on these cars, you may end up having a car that is violently loud or too much for your liking.

When you link this system to your stock X-Pipe, it won’t be over the top. It’s enough to make you excited to go for that canyon drive or Sunday afternoon cruise without being obnoxious.

Eisenmann offers two versions of this exhaust which includes a race version and sport version. Race will give you a louder note, along with 32% improvement of flow over stock. With the sport version you’ll get a quieter note, but still an improvement of 25% improvement flow over stock.
