Cool [Now Available] The AWE Exhaust Suite for the G8X M3/M4

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com


Welcome to the party in the back. Presenting the AWE Exhaust Suite for the BMW G8X M3 & M4.



Overview:
  • 50-state emissions-complaint dual 3” exhaust configuration
  • Available as valved SwitchPath™ or rowdy Track Edition
  • AWE's first SwitchPath™ exhaust for BMW to incorporate drone-canceling 180 Technology®
  • SwitchPath™ retains factory valve controls, no additional remote needed
  • Fits stock and M-Performance valances
  • Optional non-resonated performance mid-pipes available separately (for AWE Exhausts only)
  • Track Edition (with mid-pipes) provides a 22 lb weight savings over the stock exhaust
  • Bespoke X-pipe unlocks a smooth tone out of the S58
  • Ball socket mounting points for easy installation
  • Max gains of 3 hp and 5 lb-ft of torque at the wheels
  • Quad 4.5” double-walled, slash-cut tips available in chrome silver and diamond black
  • Less is more: clean, straight-through design maximizes performance
  • Manufactured in-house at AWE
  • AWE No CEL Guarantee
  • AWE Perfect Fitment Guarantee
  • AWE Lifetime Warranty

IMPORTANT FITMENT NOTES THAT YOU SHOULD READ:
  • Mid Pipes: AWE’s Non-Resonated Performance Mid-Pipes are designed to be paired to AWE Exhausts only. Due to varying cut points, they’re not guaranteed to work with another manufacturer’s exhaust configuration.
  • Exhausts: AWE Exhausts feature inlet adapters to mate to the factory mid-section. When pairing AWE Mid-Pipes to the SwitchPath™ or Track Edition Exhausts, the aforementioned adapters are not needed. Due to varying cut points, AWE Exhausts are not guaranteed to mate with another manufacturer’s mid pipes.
  • Valances: AWE Exhausts are confirmed to fit stock and M-Performance valances.

The Options:



SwitchPath™:





Presenting the first AWE SwitchPath™ configuration for BMW to incorporate patented drone-canceling 180 Technology®.

No drone, minimal bends, maximum flow, and push-button attitude. The SwitchPath™ Exhaust is comprised of 3-inch U.S.-sourced T304L stainless steel, a precision x-pipe, and a valved SwitchPath™ muffler tuned specifically for the S58.



Beginning after factory mid pipe, the precision X-pipe immediately helps smooth the S58 of its rasp, deepening the tone before its refined further by the bespoke SwitchPath™ muffler in the rear.



The closed valve experience:

When the valves are closed, the SwitchPath™ Exhaust produces a refined, aggressive howl while remaining full-bodied and powerful – no congested, metallic sounds when on the throttle. At cruising speeds, interior acoustics are close to stock with no drone at cruising speeds. AWE SwitchPath™ tech also responds perfectly to the many transmission settings and shift points in automatic vehicles. Drop the hammer with the valves closed and SwitchPath™ sings a proper M anthem. If you were to leave the valves closed at all times after equipping SwitchPath™, we wouldn’t blame you — it’s that good… all of the time.



The opened valve experience:

Open the valves and the S58’s roar is uncorked. Sport and Sport+ modes achieve the ultimate contrast in behavior when compared to comfort driving modes (valves closed). In Sport mode, the exhaust note is powerful, clean, and aggressive. In Sport+ mode, the same aggression applies… but with grin-provoking burbles. Thanks to the precision X-pipe, the rasp is still kept in check while allowing the exhaust note to reach full aggression.

If you’re looking for the best of both worlds (i.e. drone-free, clean aggression), and want to retain your factory valve behavior all while gaining peace of mind (i.e. emissions compliance), look no further than SwitchPath™.



The Track Edition:





AWE’s Track Edition takes all of the precision engineering and performance of its SwitchPath™ counterpart, minus the valved muffler in the rear. The result is a constant “valve open” mode, at an affordable price. If you’re craving rich and rowdy tones at all times, and a hefty 22 lb weight savings, this is your dose of steel.

The Track Edition Exhaust, also 50 state legal like its SwitchPath™ sibling, comes complete with AWE valve simulators to accommodate your factory exhaust valve motors. Happy ECU, happy life.



Note: This version is known to get rowdy, and may be too much for many. For that reason, this particular version cannot be returned due to sound preference. Prepare yourself (Sport+ mode can be pretty raucous)!

The Non-Resonated Performance Mid Pipes:





Ditch the factory mid section and replace it with two 3”, non-resonated mid-pipes designed to up the ante in the aggression department. Mate the mid-pipes to the SwitchPath™ or Track Edition Exhausts if you prefer the party to start right behind the factory secondary catalysts.





Tips:

When it comes to showing off the party out back, each exhaust comes complete with quad 4.5” double-walled, slash-cut tips available in chrome silver or diamond black.

Pricing is available on their website. I'm assuming they're not allowed to link directly. Seems to be pretty competitive in the marketplace.

No forum discounts I'm afraid, would undercut the agreement we have with our dealers.

That being said some dealers run promotions from time to time, feel free to DM me I can always provide dealer recommendations.

We only deal in US-sourced T304L stainless steel with a .065" wall thickness. The grand allure of Ti is the weight, which we get, but exhausts are much more than that. 304 doesn't oscillate when heated and used like Ti does, which is what causes Ti to sound so tin-can. We have really honed our signature soundtracks to utilize the characteristics of the thick-walled 304 stainless, plus it lasts a lifetime.

I saw some promotion from Vivid doing 15% off AWE exhausts and preorders for this exhaust. It expires today.

I see the issue. I'm using the app.
So the top banner is there and the next thing you see is the switch path section.

It would be awesome if "more" (there are a few) exhaust companies started making exhausts in the M Performance configuration. The rear diffusers are available, separately from the actual exhaust, so you could use any exhaust if its configured to fit in this style.
Well exhausts have nothing to do with visual smog. Some states it’s the sound but I don’t know where they look at an exhaust and say no lol. Some cars don’t even have a muffler from factory.

I’m curious about that picture though. What car was it on?

The track exhausts are not for the faint of heart. Those suckers are LOUD.

Great quality though.

Can we get a sound comparison between the two flavors? Hard to tell from the video which one is which. Please do not overlay any music like Armytrix while performing the sound test.
