Like its brethren, the M3 and M4, the G87 M2 is a giant leap forward from its predecessor in terms of overall performance and its capabilities. Not surprising given the latter model borrowing heavily from its older siblings' part catalog resulting in a wide swath of components being interchangeable amongst the trio. A few inlet pipe bends prevent the exhaust from being one of those but the M2 is still largely the same as the G8x M3/M4 system. This allowed the extensive drone abatement development applied on those platforms to be used on the G87, fast tracking the R&D process. The result is the introduction of another member of G8x valved axle back exhaust family that elevates the tone to a deeper, more meaningful note while also delivering an extra level of amplification above and beyond its stock counterpart.
To achieve desired sound volume and tone worthy of the G87 M2 the tubing was enlarged to 76mm (vs 70mm stock) to allow freer flow, and reduce backpressure, throughout the entirety of the system. The larger piping gives way to multiple pathways as it nears the rear of the vehicle -- the choice of which is utilized determined by the factory exhaust valves which are retained. When valves are closed, flow is directed into the Dinan muffler, where absorption and reactive technologies are used, and exit out the two inner tips. This limits noise during low-speed driving and produces a more subdued, albeit deeper, and agreeable note. However, when the valves are open during high-load conditions the bulk of the gases bypass the muffler altogether for a near straight pipe design and maximum aural enjoyment to be achieved. It's the perfect marriage for all tastes and allows civility or impassioned aggression depending on what the situation demands. The combination is one Dinan has deemed fitting for the marques signature performance models that cater to the tasteful enthusiast who demand the best for all situations.
Visually, the Dinan G87 M2 exhaust has been skillfully crafted entirely out of T304 stainless steel and TIG welded for the best visual appearance and color. The entire system is then brush finished to further guarantee an immaculate looking system out of the box. The attention to detail is not limited to parts of the system you can't see once the exhaust is installed but is also extended to the exhaust tips themselves. The Dinan exhaust includes massive, quad 4.5-inch (114mm) clamp-on, double-walled, polished stainless steel and laser engraved exhaust tips. Despite the seemingly cartoonish size on paper, the tips mesh seamlessly and fill the factory cut-outs to complete the OEM+ look with a healthy dose of audible attitude.
