@kbk - yes the exhaust is expensive i agree . So as to get the full 5 levels of the exhaust and also the F1 mode you need to replace the cats also so thats why the extra JPY 170,000 but yes would go in for the Eisenmann system if we planning for group buy.

I would recommend the Eisenmann system guys , because it is a direct bolt on and requires no change / delete of cats. Cat tampering voids the warranty (direct bolt on does not) and also , incorrect installation of the cats may lead to internal wiring damage due to over heating and leakage of hot gases. Sure , a cat delete would make the M3 sound like the Australian V8 championship cars , provided one can find a competent installer.

Karan,good to see your collection.Like one of the members said "I started hating my life now" I think i feel the same now :P.

I have only one question,I think you don't get hurt for me asking you this.

How do you pay for this cars ? I mean direct cash payment or you guys take loan ?

Because 2 months back,we got an Audi A8,we literally faced alot to get loan for that audi.I think you don't feel bad for me asking this,if at all you feel bad,my sinceren apologies and you need not care to reply my question.

You hate your life after the fact that your family owns an A8, a Civic, a Montero soon and possibly others? Even colloquially, that's just not cool

Look at me here. My only means of transport was stolen from me (my mountain bike), and I'm still mighty merry. It's the way to be. How I'd kill for an A8 today as a student, but frankly, I'd rather I slogged my butt of and earned it a few years down the line

My dad owns Audi a8,not me.He never allowed me to touch that.And my civic is my uncles civic,i may lose this civic also soon and Montero we got that on March 13th.But in two weeks new edition was released.And that montero is our family car.I am not allowed to touch.Like you said,the only thing i have now is a karizma red,it's not stolen yet.

There are competant, experienced and trained personnel here who can install the exhaust sysmtems. So I dont think it will be much of a problem installing them

BMWAddict: How come your name is BMWAddict and your dad bought an Audi A8 is a great car man, in sometime though you should be able to lay hands on it.

A rich man cries . After having access to an A8, montero and Civic!

Yes, i do live near your place. As a matter of fact, we live in the same line. Just a few houses away.

Cat = Catalytic converter = device used to reduce the toxicity of emissions from an engine.
