In axle-back form, the SwitchPath™ retains your M5’s factory mid-section, and bolt up right at the rear axle. The AWE Switchpath™ Axleback Exhaust maintains a 3” diameter, shaves weight from the rear, and retains the factory valve behavior.
This is a made to order system. Delivery time is usually 3-6 weeks.
Buying just the Performance Mid Pipes or this axleback system right now? Have intentions to add another section later?
That’s a good thing. AWE engineered this Exhaust Suite for the M5 as a completely modular configuration that allows you to do just that, at any time. Simply purchase the rest later and it will all fit together. (Some cutting may be required).
What’s in the box?
Complete SwitchPath™ Axleback system with four, 4” tips in chrome silver, and all required installation hardware.
Welcome to the new era of M5.
