    Have any W212 6.2 owners had any exhaust mods done to their car.

    Done a little searching and on US forums the mod owners tend to do is a resonator delete with straight pipes. I am up for modding the exhaust but I'm afraid I will create drone doing so. I did a few things with the 55k and got it just right for my liking in the end albeit a small drone/ vibration through the under tunnel of the car. It was bearly noticeable but I could feel it through the drive train at about 75/80 mph. Other than that it was perfect.

    The video's I have listen to sound amazing with the res delete on the 6.2 but like I say I would like some UK owners views if you have done any mods to your exhaust system. Cheers.

    If you cut out the resonator, your exhaust will drone. Headers with catless downpipes add the most to the exhaust sound.

    Have you got experience of this. As quite a few members on here have done this mod and more even removing cats and they recall no droning. Many 55k folk do these mods.


    I'm just curious as like you say drone can be had doing such mods. But other owners are saying different!!!!

    I don't care what anyone says. You cut the resonator out, you have the drone. It's that simple. Whether you pretend you don't hear it, turn the music up or avoid driving at low RPM won't change the fact that resonators in cars are to cancel the drone.

    Post pics of your new ride (and old one). Don't think we've seen any of them before and we like pics.

    Well Alex, you calling all exhaust modders Liars who remove resonators lol.

    Uploading photos is not easy and I am know forum guru lol. I will give it a go but need to take some of the knew ride first.

    Maybe some of the E55k about with the Forgestar f14 I put on the car in matt black. But some 55K OWNERS may never forgive me for such a mod lol.

    IL try but not promising anything !!!!

    What does the resonator do if not cut the drone???

    Maybe those who have done it don't like to admit they made an error....

    Have you got experience of this?

    With a resonator delete you could install straight pipes an X pipe or some opt for a H type piece in place of the resonator. Some owners of all 55k engines models have had this mod and most of if not all say they do not hear or recall drone. I can't speak for them. But I didn't get any drone apart from slight vibration/drone noise at 75 80 mph. Once. over or under this speed the exhaust tone was just like stock system. Unless I hit the accelerator pedal and the tone would bring the V8 to life

    An X- or H-pipe is there to balance the exhaust pressure between the left and right engine banks. Resonators are designed to kill off the drone frequencies and are engine specific.

    PS: Thanks for the pictures. I know of only one guy on here who takes similar pictures of parts of his cars and his name is @C36fan ;-)

    I understand the H pipe X pipes purpose regarding the exhaust gases keeping it all even and so on. Straight pipes in that section would offer what on a system can you confirm?

    I do find it hard to be of the belief that every 55k owner cls owner c63 owner that has had the resonator delete has drone on their system.

    Am I being to honest that I did experience that slight noise at the mph I stated. The stock system on the E55k is very muted it has to be said.

    That one
    My first E55K had had the resonator took out and it droned more than my mother when I’d come home drunk at 3am having forgotten my key when I was 19.
