The Exhaust system for the SLK with the bypass valve could be loud or normal with a press of a button!
If you want it to be Loud you press a button and flaps open in the exhaust system leting more sound to pass, if you wanted it to sound lower you again press the button so the flaps close

Yeah, I don't understand it either. I've seen one posted before where it bypasses the rear cat and muffler, thereby increasing power and sound. This one seems different. Instead it uses one of the exhausts as the bypass. Do they 'blow out' one side? Don't quite get it.

BTW, here's a link for one on a CLS. Pretty impressive.

I might want one if it adds power and sound. However, it seems like it closes the exhaust when its not engaged. The CLS installation operates differently. Am I the only one that sees it this way?

This is just what I have been looking for to increase the exhaust sound on the 55. Anybody contact them to find out the cost? Will they ship to the USA?

Interesting that they'd be illegal anywhere. In California (where EVERYTHING cool is illegal) we can use 'em so long as they bypass *after* the catalytic converter. At that point, so long as it meets the sound requirments (which are pretty lenient) it's perfectly legal.

The old Mitsubishi 3000-GT-VR4 had a setup like this from the factory. One side of the exhaust was a "real" muffler and the other was pretty much decoration. With the flip of a switch the exhaust would divert to the "decorative" side instead of the muffled side.

Do you still keep the same 4x AMG exhausts sticking out the rear of the car or does the whole thing have to be changed.
