It was $180 something for the pipes and around $500 to install. I’m sure I could have had a muffler shop or cheaper place to have them fitted. But it was at German Auto anyway and you do get what you pay for.

Those guys are best imho... so I don’t mind paying $130 or whatever an hour to have them do it. Notice the perfect tip to bumper ratio! I think it sounds perfect!

Looks great! How's the exhaust drone? Was thinking of doing this or install cutouts. Some have also recommended removing the resonators instead.

I am going out to PA this weekend, so i can give you a real good idea after 1,400 miles. This is phase I. These V8 550's are depressingly hearse like! I needed to do something!

Next up is ml63 bumper so i can run quad tips and a valved dual path system, i think the hooker black heart. Remove the cats, midpipes, reinstall these chambered pipes along with an x pipe to the dual path mufflers.

Sounds a million times better as is...

Agree 100%. That's not a bad price considering what they did. Well done!

Roll on demo

well, I might just leave it as is! Sounds great! No drone or anything. Nice rumble around town and when you stomp on it you hear it!

Just what I wanted. My 550 has the OE Tuning 93oct program..if that matters watching this clips.
