BRABUS Exhaust on W212 E550

I finally got around to getting the BRABUS Exhaust for my 2010 W212 E550. I purchased it and had it installed at BRABUS in Irvine. Those guys are first class all the way. I also got the BRABUS Doorpins and Pedal set.

The exhaust is just sick. It really lets the E550 breathe and sound like the 5.4L V8 engine that it is. It has a low exhaust rumble at lower RPMs and actually gets quieter at higher RPMs/highway speeds. Perfect for a daily driver.

What was the cost of the exhaust? Do you have to use those tips or can they keep the stock ones or use AMG ones?

From a pictures perspective and an engineering point of view that looks (OEM) awesome. Couldn't get more seemless. Great detail pics.

Thanks, Troy. That was my goal when choosing an exhaust. I've got clients to take around during the week and a baby (my daughter) during the weekend. I wanted something clean and OEM. Brabus has a lot of experience in working with Mercedes and it shows.

That's probably a good idea. Mainly for the locals. I'd like to check out your car as well! What/when did you have in mind?

I'm pretty flexible on time, most nights after 7pm. What location in the OC is most convenient for you?

Hi OP,

I have a 2011 e550 coupe that's been chipped by that one Aussie dude out in the Valley (Jeremy? I think is his name)....are you in Irvine?

Would like to meet up to hear the exhaust.

The coupe (with chip) is as fast as my buddies x6M going 0-70ish. (non launch control on his end).

Can you also pm me the cost? I'm looking for a little more grumble out of my exhaust, but it needs to remain professional as I take clients out as well and don't want to sound like a ricer. I sold my 2009 M5 for that exact reason (daily driver and clients would give me dirty looks when they saw the V10 beast pull up with full exhaust/headers)

<edit>

Also, my car got rear ended by some jackass right before I moved to Newport.....so driving rental car now. Won't have car back until end of August (body shop is lagging). Here is a pic of the damage the idiot did (I was stopped completely in front of my condo and he just SLAMMED into me at 35 mph. Believe it or not, ZERO frame damage and only the side panel and bumper and trunk need replacing.)

Welcome, and sorry to see that mangled pic .I suppose it help up pretty well considering 35 mph is not to be sneezed at all
Happy driving

Sorry, but I've been busy. My apologies for not responding to your request sooner. I was going to recommend contacting your favorite Authorized Distributor, or Brabus directly. Glad to hear that you contacted them and got your question answered.

I will say that I got a better deal than that. Sorry for not being able to disclose further info.

Weeknights after 7pm work for me as well. Thursdays work great. Saturday mornings as well.

We should think of a place in Irvine or Newport, preferrably near a place that serves cold beer.

There are plenty of places at the Spectrum that serve beer.

A Saturday morning (b'fast) early next month would be ideal for me but if you guys pick a night I'll try to make it.

My ride is pretty plain with exception of the integrated radar detector unit and aftermarket parking sensors I was waiting to do wheels until after I needed to replace the stock tires. Windows need to be tinted but I haven't made time to get it done.
