We also offer ceramic coating services on these utilizing Cerakotes High Temperature Ceramic coating, made to withstand temperatures up to 1800F. Please note that while we do offer a lifetime warranty on the downpipes, we only offer a 1 year warranty on the ceramic coating services due to the nature of the product.

Just got my dp installed over the weekend, and love them! Welds are nice, fitment was on point and love the cut down in lag from turbos. Also sounds very good when you get into boost, even whistles as low 2k. Overall welds could be better, but then again Tiago at vr-speed factory gives you a LIFE TIME WARRANTY!!! I don't think you can beat that especially for the price compared to the AR design. Also, since there is the life time warranty, you have nothing to worry about.
Much mahalo!

Happy camper and extremely happy with the switch Review by m4xm1l10n
Overall Rating
Let's start off by saying that I couldn't be any happier with Tiago and the products with an extremely fast shipping time!

Recently installed the VRSF 7" FMIC & 3" Cat-less DP. First of all customer support from Tiago is simply greatness. Had a local shop in ATL install my DP and vehicle was in and out of the bay in hour and half, as the tech mention it was a breeze to install with simply zero issues, and holly crap did I pick up some seat of the pants TQ .

That same night in my garage I replace my 6" AA IC with the VRSF 7" and since the trimming was already done it was really a little over hour to install and make sure all was well and tight with a more Aggressive look from the front grill and also the couplers and clamps provided by VRSF are by far superior.

As for cooling the bigger 7" comes on top ( obviously is a bigger 7" IC ) specially during long high speed pulls confirming what TIAGO had stated. What I really like about the vrsf is how quick the IAT comes down after the vehicle is rolling from being stopped in traffic .

All in all I am a happy camper and extremely happy with the switch .

Over all I am VERY happy with the productReview by aeilers
Overall Rating
Just wants to give a little review of the product and install on my 07 E92 335i.

My VRSF DP came in the mail about 4 weeks ago or so and I finally got around to install them a week ago. Shipping was fast and everything was in order in the box when it arrived. The install is very straight forward. It did take me about 6 hours to be honest to install them. I used ramps and took my time during the install. The fitment was perfect, just enough space between the sub-frame and between the DP's themselves. Hardest part for me during the install was getting the clamp on the rear turbo and DP back installed and tight, other than that everything went just fine. Here is DIY video I used from youtube that really helped me out.

My VRSF 7 Inch FMIC was shipped to me just a few days ago. It was about a month wait for it to arrive since when I ordered it, but it was expected since they were on back order. The FMIC was boxed well and everything was in order when i was unpacking it. I installed this last night and have a OEM bumper. I also used ramps and did not remove the bumper, but it was tight fiting the FMIC in with the bumper on, recommend having a friend with you to help. Once the old intercooler is removed you will need to also remove the OEM rubber hoses too, which have a metal clamp that you will need to cut with a dremel. Its a bit tight to get to the clamp to cut but it can be done. Now the part that slowed me down was the trimming of the front shroud plastic. I first started slowly trimming it and test fitting, but after about a hour and a half I said screw it and cut the whole bottom half of the shroud out ( I recommend everyone to do that, saves ALOT OF TIME). Other than that install was easy and fit perfect.

Over all I am VERY happy with the product, I have not had much time to get my car on the road here in MN due to the cold and snow to really test it all out, but I will soon and will let you all know.

Thanks for reading and feel free to PM me if you have questions about the install.

Thank you for the downpipes, installer said it fitted like a glove. I was scared that I was going to spend over $600 to get it installed but it took them only 1.5 hours to install it.

I already had the OEM BMW performance exhaust but it didn't satisfy my ears after driving my g35 w/ HKS exhaust for a couple years before this. After these DP's were in, it surprisingly sounded better than my g35 which I thought was impossible.

EVERYONE SHOULD BUY THIS.

It can't be beat!Review by BuellsterR1
Overall Rating
For the money, it can't be beat. It comes with all gaskets, hardware, has a polished finish, and fits perfectly which makes installation a breeze.

With DPs, you also reap the benefits of a throatier exhaust note. Scaled, I would rate it a notch up from stock which is perfect for someone wanting a tab bit more without it being obvious to others.

Once you've had your fun with the DPs, look into getting an intercooler. I purchased the VRSF 7" intercooler and it rocked just like the DPs. IAT with the stock IC increase on average about 40 degress from 3rd to mid 4th gear. With the VRSF IC, average IAT were 18 degrees. I was also able to maintain target boost levels on the OpenFlash Tablet which I couldn't do with the stock IC. It was always 1psi lower throught the power band.

Props to VRSF!Review by ttdmac
Overall Rating
Just recently pulled the trigger on some bolt on pieces with the most recent addition being the OFT tablet.
All I can say is WOW!

The catless downpipes without the tune were just embarrassing noise amplifiers...no fault of their own but the N54 is very mechanical and raspy without the cats.
After running my battery almost dead during the flash process (it dipped as low as 10v) and recharging it back to life, upon start up I was greeted by a much deeper sound with the OTS Stage 0 map loaded.
Must be the wastegate parameters or something but there's a noticeable lack of rattle with the tune.

Anyway with Indiana getting slammed with snow and rain it's been hard to really get to run the car hard, but it's been fun nonetheless. Lots of wheelspin and sideways action nailing the throttle in 3rd at 60mph...
Can't wait to see how the other OTS maps run and maybe even a mild ethanol map since I can get my hands on the stuff locally.

Props to VRSF for dealing with my mechanics and delivering a top notch product. Even my mechanics commented on how nice the downpipes looked and fitted, particularly for the value.

VRSF Downpipes - RHD N54 ReviewReview by Kabnine
Overall Rating
I just had the VRSF Downpipes fitted to my Right Hand Drive 135i. They were one of the few that were listed as fitting RHD without the need to relocate the O2 sensors or any other modification. They were literally bolt on. The mechanic was impressed with the fact that they line up perfectly with the factory pipework and Turbo Charges. I haven't experienced any knocking or vibration. I was hoping for a little more noise out of the back end, but I can't really notice any change in the note. Looks like I will be investing in a cat back system and maybe some midpipes at a later date. The only thing that I haven't seen mentioned before is the Downpipe to Turbo's gaskets. I assume since nobody has mentioned them before that everyone just re-uses theirs. I made the choice to replace them, since its a pita to have to pull it all back off if there is a leak. Had I know about these prior to putting it in to have them fitted, I would have ordered them for $15 each from the states as opposed to paying $85each to get them from an Australian Stealership. I paid for the convenience of them being ordered at 4pm and being here the next day.

All in all, very happy with the product, especially for the price.

The power is AWESOMEReview by Bootay
Overall Rating
After a while of living with the new installs, thought I'd post a quick update:

1) Kittyless DPs don't make much more smell, unless you have windows open and are sitting idle, in which case you definitely smell them but it's more of "I'm sitting in traffic and can smell a trucks fumes ahead" then "I just ran over a skunk". In other words, not a big deal and only detectable in that idle/open window scenario for me.

2) The power is AWESOME - hit DTC once and let it rip, I can break the rear end loose even from a 30mph roll. My previous JB4/Meth only car had great power but no ability to put it down, the LSD+suspension mods make this car with similar power much more controlled, definitely highly recommended for spirited street driving.

I just had my VRSF downpipes installed tonight by AK Motorwerk and the fit was perfect. It took Kevin working alone only 90 minutes start to finish. It may have been quicker if the car wasn't hot as hell from the drive over there. I was impressed from the minute I opened the box. They are very well constructed and the fit is perfect. They get pretty close together at one point but do not contact each other. I beat on it pretty good on the ride home and all is well. I have a DCI and JB4 on Map 5. Power was definitely increased and the sound is amazing coupled with the stock 335is exhaust. I highly recommend these pipes.

EASILY the best downpipes availableReview by JBax
Overall Rating
Install was completed on sat. Did it myself with no helper. I will make this short and to the point:

welds look decent inside and out
fit was PERFECT - better fit than I've seen on AA downpipes (plenty of clearance all around, aligned perfectly with my aftermarket exhaust, no problems mating up to the turbos)
where the downpipes reduce to 2.5" is fairly gradual on the inside eventhough in some of the pics posted on the forum it looks very drastic on the outside
noticed a good increase in throttle response and power

conclusions: way better than raceland (shotty fit and only 2.5")
better design and fit than PLM (aka giant dent downpipes)
better fit than some AA downpipes i've seen (AA nicer finish though)
EASILY the best downpipes available for the price ($385 shipped)

The VRSF components have delivered, and the performance increase has been FANTASTIC.Review by Bootay
Overall Rating
I just had my VRSF 7" FMIC and DPs installed, and it was basically a non-event. They went in easily, no real issues. My mechanic said it was just like pretty much any other DP/FMIC (and he's done plenty), the DPs fit well and he only had to trim a little bit of the shroud for the FMIC and it's very securely mounted. We had to adjust DPs once after road testing showed it was hitting subframe a tiny bit and causing massive vibrations in the cabin at low speeds, otherwise as plug and play as this stuff gets. Also dropped in the BMS DP Fix and that seems to be working great, but a few more miles are needed before I'm sure it won't pop codes.

I'm not into having any compromises on my car, as it not only has me driving around aggressively, but I also carry kids to school and ferry customers to lunch and my wife even drives it. I can't have odd noises, rattles, or reliability issues. So far, the VRSF components have delivered, and the performance increase has been FANTASTIC.

Hey guys so I ordered a set of VRSF 3" downpipes and I finally got around to installing them today. Lets start off with the install, it took me about 3 hours to get it done but overall it wasn't that difficult just a very tight space to work in I installed the band clamp in the wrong place so it was hitting the waste gate actuator and wasn't boosting fully but I fixed that and its all good now. I drove it around for a few minutes to let it warm up and then found an open stretch of road and let it rip. Now that I have the band clamp installed right I can definitely feel the difference it sounds much better and the power feels a lot better as well. The sound at WOT is louder than stock but not crazy loud, a friend of mine has a really nice camera with a boom mic so I will take some video of it on Monday and post it up. I have to say that for the price these downpipes are awesome and I would definitely spend the money again.

All my expectations were filledReview by taylors335
Overall Rating
I'll keep this short and to the point and try to answer all the known ?'s regarding DP's.
First and foremost FIT , these are the first Dp's I've installed , mind you I have 10 years GM dealership level tech experience so this is not my first rodeo. once i got the car up on jacks (i did these in my garage) i pulled off all the trim and removed the OEM pipes and got the new ones up and loosely fitted in the V-band , the flange of the new dp was true and flat as well as the rear flange , once both pipes were fitted i tightened the rear of both and the the v band and fit was perfect rite off the bat , no adjustments needed to be made what so ever !! O2 sensor bungs were well placed. install time for my first time with the pipes using all air tools was 2.5 hours ! not bad

Next lets do QUALITY , these are 304 SS polished SS good looking pipes too bad there not visible , welds are all TIG and well done as you can see in the pics clean on the inside as well flanges were flat and mating surfaces were smooth , the 1 and only dislike on quality were the bolts provided in the package were a little cheap they could have gone with a grade 8 bolt with a plating on them .... not that big of a deal to me !

OK .... how about SOUND !!! sound is great I'm running complete OEM exhaust other than the DP's cold start and idle are "stock like" while WOT screams .. and at a stand still with small blips the turbos spool sound sick !!!

OK last is POWER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and man loving the new found HP and TQ , my performance mods ar JB4 , BMS filter , custom oil cooler and oil CC , and now these DP's and the car was transformed pulled way harder on both map 5 and 1 and throttle response is almost instant !!!

So in conclusion i know that all my expectations were filled Price vs Performance and fit its all there with these ! I understand all my thoughts on these are what all of the quality 3" pipes out there provide, but these do the same at much lower cost , if anyone is in the market for DP's order these with confidence and you will not be disappointing.

Just finished installing these with a friend 20 mins ago.. install was arduous at best but thats no fault of VRSF. Just typical BMW working space and seized nuts/bolts on a 4 year old canadian car. About 2x as hard as a FMIC install.

First, I'd like the thank Tiago for the excellent customer service. I was an early adopter and received these back in January. I finally got around to installing them a few weeks ago. It took me a little longer then I originally thought (stupid V-clamps), but I finally got them. Fitment was spot on, just as the other reviewers have said. After a few days I did notice a slight rattle against the heat shield but I was quickly able to loosen everything, adjust and retighten. Things have been great since then. Thanks again Tiago! Here are some pics after my initial install.

Over all, I LOVE THEM. Hearing the new exhaust note alone was worth the dp'sReview by LuSt4Boost
Overall Rating
I had my dp's installed by local friend/forum member on Friday. Took a couple hours for him to complete. According to him, fitment was "almost" perfect. He did have to slightly bend the heatshield out the way, but this was only to make sure the dp's didn't rattle or hit against the shield while driving. May not have been completely necessary, but he did it based on his experience with various dp's.

Upon start up, the idle of the car definitely changed. The sound is much deeper. I love it. When cruising through the gears, that deep throaty sound follows through the entire rpm, but it's not loud by any means. I think it's perfect. You can also hear the turbo spool.

On a sad note, it does amplify wastegate rattle significantly. I did not know my wastegate rattled so badly. The rattle seems to be echoed through the pipes.

As for the butt dyno review, I definitely feel more power down low and in the mid-range. Initially, I didn't notice anything, but I was told to drive it 50 miles for the motor to adjust to the dp's. After about 40miles of driving, boost seemed to kick in MUCH harder, especially in 2nd gear.

Last year, at the track in about 45-50* weather, I ran my best of 12.5@115 with a 1.8 '60 (stock tires). My only mods were JB4 (map 7 w/103 octane) and BMS intake.

This weekend, at the track in about 75-80* weather, I ran my best of 12.1@116 with a 1.9 '60 (stock tires). My mods to date are JB4 (map 3 w/103 octance), Helix intake, WW Meth kit, and of course, VRSF dp's. With some DR's or slick, I'll definitely be in the 11s!

Over all, I LOVE THEM. Hearing the new exhaust note alone was worth the dp's...lol

Overall I am very happy with the dpsReview by cleex024
Overall Rating
yeah i just installed mine yesterday and it literally took me 15 hours lol...only because i took about 100 breaks and i had to redo everything cause i put in the o2 sensors reversed.

so the car would shake and throw everything single misfire code lol.

but seriously if i had to do it over again it would take less than 3 hours. only took me 2 hours and 15 minutes to reverse the o2 sensors which i had to take everything out except the v clamps on the drivers side so only would have taken another 2 minutes to undo those.

i cant stress it enough....dont forget to put the o2 sensors in the right way lol.

so to the fitment...fitment was really really good. everything lined up so nicely and like where most people had problems with the v clamps taking so long with other brands. well not with this one...seriously it just closed right up like it was oem once you lined it up right.

just make sure you have some good tools though...some extra tools that comes in handy and this install and probably others would be a socket wrench that you can tighten and untighten with a turn of the wrench handle and also a universal socket that bascially turns 90 degrees in every direction. the wrench is for the passenger side heat shield (seriously that took so long to try to cramp my hand in there with a small socket wrench but my buddy told me that he had that special wrench and it was simple to do after that)

overall i am very happy with the dps...definitely hear the turbos spool now.

Best value on the market!Review by wardvette
Overall Rating
I installed these on my wife's e92 this weekend in about 3 - 4 hours on ramps and jack stands. Perfect fitment, no rattles, and sounds much better. I've never seen the higher priced downpipes but even if they do look a little nicer it seems like a waste of money. You can't see them on the car and these looked great anyway. Only reservation I had / have is the power. Haven't seen dynos or track times on these but I can't see how they would be any less effective than any other 3" DPs.

Like most others, I hated spending $200 on Racelands that have 50% chance of fitting and are only 2.5", didn't want to spend $350 for PLMs that have a dent, might not fit and might rattle, and didn't want to spend $600 - $800 for the nicer sets. Best value on the market!

IMO these have a great quality to cost ratio and I would definitely purchase again.Review by keendog42
Overall Rating
Great review; installed mine yesterday also. Fit was perfect, approx. 1/8" between pipe to subframe & pipe to pipe. Turbo clamps went right on without any fighting or longer bolts as some have mentioned. The hardest part for me was removing (breaking) the original DP bolts & removing the upper O2 sensors (couldn't find my O2 sensor socket, my wrench was a bit too long, & the front one was TIGHT). Had the car on ramps but jacked the passenger side up a bit so that I had more movement with the rack as tire would turn left to right depending on whether I was trying to reach in front of or behind it to better access. From start to finish it took just over 3 hrs with standard hand tools. Now hopefully the roads will clear up a bit so I can get it out for a test drive.

As far as the quality of these DP's; are the welds all perfect? no. Will they pass hot exhaust gases efficiently? Yes. Items such as these that are of very good quality at a reasonable price are what makes the difference between purchasing them or not. In fact if the only option was cheap ill fitting DP's or $800 DP's I wouldn't invest in them at all. IMO these have a great quality to cost ratio and I would definitely purchase again.

Would I recommend this product to anyone with an N54? Yes. Review by Laid Black 335i
Overall Rating
Downpipes are a mod that I have been wanting to do for a while now. I went ahead and ordered the new VRSF 3" Downpipes after reading good reviews about them from others on here. Here is my review.

Price: Got them for $385.00 shipped from Tiago@VRSF. Need I say more? I won't get into the debate about paying $800 for AR downpipes.

Quality: Package arrived well packaged. The pipes are very nice with very nice quality welds and clean bends. The inside is not as smooth as AR's but are acceptable and pretty good. Also came with nice gaskets and all hardware.

Fitment: Great! I got my DP's installed today by Adam (member "Clem" here on e90post). He is pretty much the "Go To" guy for anyone in the Maryland, DC, and Virginia area. He has done DP installs on about 25+ N54 cars here in the area... everything from AR, Riss Racing, Macht Snell, Raceland, and now VRSF. From his view, everything fit well and there were no issues. Although space was tight up there, nothing was touching each other.

Sound & Power: I have an OEM exhaust still. But with the added DP's, it's only a little bit louder. It's nice that I can also hear the turbo's spool a little better when the music is muted. I've only driven about 30 miles after the install but I can definitely feel quicker spool. I think the car is still getting used to the new downpipes. Hopefully tomorrow, I will feel it even more after the car gets used to it.

Would I recommend this product to anyone with an N54? Yes.

The difference is freaking mind-boggling. The turbos spool instantaneously, the sound is exotic and intoxicating. I was initially worried that the sound would be too much, but it actually ended up being perfect. Throttle response is scary now, and the car feels even more amounts of stupid fast. One of the best performance mods I've done, up there with the JB4!
