After waiting, and waiting… And waiting some more… We finally got our hands on the latest, biggest, baddest BMW M. The all new F85 X5M to be exact.
Before putting the super SUV under the knife, we grabbed some baseline power figures on our AWD Mustang Dyno. Throwing down 460 wheel horsepower and 453 wheel torque (ft/lbs), the new M SUV is as fast on paper as it feels out on the road!
Unlike the X5 50i, the M does not sport any restrictive secondary catalytic converters or excessively large and sound inhibiting resonators in its middle section. Thus it was decided that an axle-back setup would get the job done perfectly and also make for a simple installation!
This new Meisterschaft exhaust is offered in two familiar flavors: GTS and GTC.
Below is the GTC configuration. This system features our electronically controlled variable chambers that allow you to adjust the volume of the exhaust system, covering every sound from mild to wild!
If having the option to be discrete and under the radar is not something you’re in to, then there’s the GTS. The GTS produces an aggressive sound that is perfectly suited for the new X5M. Not over the top, but just right.
Meisterschaft on the Dyno
Equipped with our Meisterschaft GTC (EV Control) exhaust, and dyno-tested in open (performance mode), the X5M put down an impressive 472whp and 475wtq, putting our max gains with the new Meisterschaft exhaust at +12whp and +27wtq! We’ll take it!
As always, if you have any questions or concerns regarding Meisterschaft exhaust products for this X5M, or any other vehicle, please feel free to contact us at anytime!
