    alright guys, I've read all the exaust threads for the 355. But would like everyone's opinion once again....1997 355 exhaust....

    1) Capristo
    2) Kreissieg

    Which once would you choose? I've heard them both on video and they sound very similar.

    I've read that kreissieg exhaust run extremly hot and can damage the bodywork....is this true? But the kreissieg exhaust has a switch that changes the volume of the exhaust.

    I have only seen the Kreissieg vid clips so can't give personal feedback about how it sounds. I do know someone with decat Capristo and it's fantastic. Knocks spots of my decat Tubi.

    From the videos I've seen, the sound of the Kriessieg is absolutely unstoppable. However, the prices I've seen are up in the $18,000 range I think... Not really worth it.

    I had my doubts about the Capristo compared to my other stainless steel system, which i thought was the dogs. As soon as the Capristo was fitted on a month free trial along with straight pipes, i paid for it the first day of driving the new set up. Thats no Sh*t , did it last week. Recomended.

    I went with a Capristo on my 355 a couple of months ago, now two of my mates have fitted them too. Nothing sounds like it. Even Tubi owners in HK are now wanting to switch to Capristo. I also have hyper-flow cats from troy and the combination is amazing. The crackling sound on liftoff is beautiful. Scares Porsches....

    Neither, I installed a mille-miglia and it is gret. Previous posts have discussed my thoughts. Have had the mm on for about 6 months now and it is great. Good sound great wail, more torque much lighter than original and great pipes in polished stainless. Probably a lot less expensive.
