    X5M/X6M - exhaust "mod"...anybody willing to try ?

    There seems to be a little and very simple vacuum rubber hose leading to one tip of the muffler. Just pull it off and put a small screw inside it (rubber hose), so dirt or similar stuff can't get into it.

    The exhaust sound (from outside !) should be deeper and louder.

    Could anybody check out if it works ? Thanks.

    Might even be simpler, just pull a fuse in the fuse box like  Vantages.

    Sorry I am just speculating as I am still on the fence on my color choices plus YOUR facelift leaks, makes me wish I was never on the board and knew about the improvements and bought the car and be a happy clam, haha.

     


    Re: X5M/X6M - exhaust "mod"...anybody willing to try ?

    I don't think this (fuse) works, just the hose (similar to the Porsche Sport Exhaust).

    Here's a photo of the culprit, I'm curious if it works.

    Hmm, vacuum operated, not solenoid.

    Unscrew the damn thing and just take out the flap? :)


    Re: X5M/X6M - exhaust "mod"...anybody willing to try ?

    will check it as soon as i can (i.e. car is here)

    I'm in too with the race. When I first talked to my dealer, he told me that my car arrives earliest end of March or beginning of April.

    My first order confirmation had the 23rd March 2010 as an estimated delivery date.

    I changed my order after two days, I added three additional options (6-DVD changer, 4-zone climate control and high beam assist) and when I checked my new order confirmation, the estimated delivery date was March 1st 2010. Weird.

    The estimated delivery date seems to be calculated by the order system, my dealer had nothing to do with it.

    My dealer told me that it usually takes maximum 9 weeks for a delivery (from time of ordering to delivery in Germany). He also told me that he had cases where it took only 6 weeks, sometimes 7-8 weeks.

    Maybe I'm lucky...unless the bloody vessel my X5 M will be on sinks in a storm.

    Let me see:

    9 weeks - delivery date around February 25th 2010.

    6 weeks - delivery date around February 4th 2010.

    The race is on...  

    February 4th would be perfect since we're driving for a one week ski vacation in Austria mid of February 2010.

    The dealer provides us with a X5 for this vacation if the X5 M didn't arrive yet, it is impossible to drive to that vacation spot without a SUV, the street leading there has an inclination of up to 18% (!!!). Now imagine the street is completely covered with snow. I almost couldn't make it with my Cayenne and I really had a good speed (aprox. 50-60 kph). If you drive much slower, you're not going to make it.

    Can I ask you where is this-the name of the city-exact place? I remember you wrote this year about very tough condition in austria but  for the hummer h2 was very simply...I correctly remember?

    Katschberg.  We had many sedans there who were towed by a tractor because they couldn't make it.

    Hmm, I don’t think that it works compared with Porsche.
    When the hose is removed, the port stays closed.
    Only the vakuumpressure may open it, as far as I know.
    But ask your dealer if you can test it at one of his X-M....Smiley
