Lorinser vs Eisenmann exhaust

Hi fellas,

I'd like to by a cat back exhaust for my S600.

I'm currently looking at these two options:

1) Used Lorinser exhaust on eBay while they still sell it.
2) New Eisenmann exhaust.

I contacted Eisenmann and they told me it's a slip on exhaust and Welding and Cutting is required. I didn't know that. Before I thought that you just need to remove your OEM cat back exhaust and attach a new one.

Here are few pics of Eisenmann exhaust which they sent me:





I know that rear bumper needs to be modified too. That's ok.

Do you think Lorinser cat back exhaust will require welding/cutting too?

My plan eventually would be to put 2 5x8 magnaflow mufflers on (single in/out) mounted side by side vertically, delete the resonator and add in an x-pipe and do some slash cut tips like brabus.

There's also a dude somewhere on one of the FB w140 groups selling brabus and lorinser "replica" exhausts out of taiwan. In the pics they look perfect, but I have no idea about the quality or construction though.

Nice plan! I want to keep everything simple since it's easier to accomplish it plus I don't want to ruin the functionality or make it look worse.

The typical problem with replicas is fitment. That's the main thing I'm seeking for OEM parts.

Weird I didn't need to weld my Eisenmann muffler. The old muffler needs to be cut out as it was welded from factory.. but the new one just clamped in place on my car (1996 S600 coupe).

I got update from Eisenmann. They told me that if you have a V8 engine you need additional sleeves for their exhaust. But if you have a V12 you don't need it and it's just a cut and slip-on.

Serser thanks that explains why it was easy on my car! I guess the factory V8 muffler has smaller pipes where you need the extra sleeves to install the Eisenmann muffler.

As someone who bought a car with e Lorinser silencer, I'd suggest the Eisenmann.
My M120 sounds bone stock with the lorinser on. Literally no change in sound what so ever.

I just started with my equal length headers project, so I had to drop the exhaust. That's a shot of it out I took today. And it's welded to the "suitcase" muffler as well.

Interesting... I didn't know Lorinser is quiet on V12. At least I thought it's louder than stock based on various YouTube videos I watched...

I also recommend the Eisenmann race exhaust. Nice rumbling sound on low rpm , and loud screaming sound (almost like F-1) on higher rpm. When the rest of my exhaust rust out I will replace with straight pipes..
