Talking REMUS SPORTEXHAUST - Graz, Austria Factory Tour

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com



Hey Guys! Today’s topic is going to be on our visit to the Remus Sport Exhaust Factory in Graz, Austria! Remus had invited us to join them in attending the DTM race in Spielberg and it was INSANE!! There were thousands of people, amazing cars, and even better drivers! Remus is also going to be the largest sponsor for the DTM race come Fall of 2019! We’re beyond thankful for the opportunity to see their factory, meet their people, and see their beloved country! From the hospitality to the excitement of the events, everything was fantastic! Let’s just start right into our first day in Austria!

When we arrived at the factory we were greeted by all the different department managers. We chatted a bit getting to know everyone a little better and then we started on a factory tour. Now let me just say, Remus is a huge company with a total of 1000 employees. All exhausts are made 100% in house starting from R&D to design, testing, production & quality control. All made in Austria!



As we were walking through out the factory we got to see REMUS staff working hard on the job. We saw the pipes being sandblasted, the metals being laser cut, and the employees hand polishing and preparing shipments. They have over 250 staff members just in the REMUS factory itself! Even though some of the parts are machine made by state of the art laser cut robots, there are some tasks they still need an actual person to perform or oversee.



REMUS inventory space is huge, It is about the size of a Walmart just to compare for you! REMUS exhausts are also made out of stainless steel and titanium. They start with raw material that gets molded and cut all the way to finished products being packaged for shipment all within the same factory. There is no labor or material outsourced outside of Austria and Germany to ensure top Remus quality.

R&D Department



We had the opportunity to see the Remus R&D department and got lucky enough to hear a BMW F90 M5 competition exhaust before it’s even been released! All I have to say about that is SHOTS FIRED!!! The video speaks for itself! We also tested their newest product which is the valve controller that we will have a full video on next month.

Exhaust Drone Test



The last step in design is to test the exhaust on Remus’s own in house track where the car is equipped with high tech sensors to catch any exhaust drone. They will race the car back and forth multiple times in different weather conditions trying to catch any imperfection. If caught, the product is immediately sent back for a revision.

Sound Room



The highlight of the entire tour for us however was getting a chance to see REMUS $12 million dollar sound room that’s so quiet and still, you could feel your own heart beating! As far as we know, none of Remus’s competitors have anything like this in house! To top it off, there is a full dyno set up inside as well where they test every single product they manufacture before releasing it to the public. Not only is REMUS looking for the best sound, but also the maximum amount of power that can be gained from an exhaust upgrade. Staying true to their slogan, when sound meets power.

Something that some people may not know about Remus is that they manufacture OEM exhausts for Mercedes AMG, McLaren, Bentley, Aston Martin, Ducati, etc. They have over 700+ employees in their Sebring factory alone (the OEM part of Remus). We did have the opportunity to also tour the Sebring Factory which was amazing, but unfortunately no photos or videos were allowed inside.

After we toured both factories we headed off to Spielberg to watch the DTM race at the Redbull Arena! All 6 AMG cars were running Remus Exhausts! We got to spend our days at Remus’s private lounge where the food was delicious, the service was on point, and to top it off one of the AMG car’s got 3rd place!

Thank you for reading about our experience at Remus and we hope you enjoy the video trailer we made of our tour and all of the pictures! Again a special thank you to Remus because we can’t thank you enough for the hospitality that you showed and for an experience of a lifetime!

We will post pictures of the DTM race later, but here is a fun video to watch until then

Didn't know they were an OE supplier, nor that every single thing is done in house - even production. Imoressive!

Gotta admit, their facility is impressive on many levels, I just personally feel that their PR in the US is slacking, at least the approval or respect from an enthusiast market as a quality exhaust manufacturer. I never noticed anything unique about their craftsmanship , nor was I ever impressed with any of their systems in the past. There was something about this design.... that kinda left a sour taste for the brand ever since... personally.

[IMG]http://img441.imageshack.us/img441/439/bmwf10535i02.jpg[/IMG]

I've sold hundreds of exhausts and hardly ever had an enthusiast consider their system for an option, it was usually brought up by someone who was a first time exhaust shopper.

Hope to feel otherwise one day... :

I agree. I see it priced lower and not as popular as akra or m performance.... they have 12 million to build a room? Sounds like a bad investment.... unless of course they are OEM supplier for some auto makers....

That's very impressive. I do have to agree with an above post that they need to do a better job of promoting their products in the US. This video proves that they are a top notch company.

They need to set up booths at events and demo their stuff. Clearly from the money invested in their facility and R&D they are right up there with the rest of the big names who seem to charge a ridiculous amount of money for an exhaust.

you guys are ridiculous. remus makes one of the best sounding systems, and they make the same power as the over priced options and you are mad that they are priced cheaply?
the hell is going on here??? the only advertising i need is a sound clip and a dyno sheet.

They are present in most big events ... This year in SEMA they have a virtual reality station. Should be fun

I agree. I've had two of the race systems so far and the sound is awesome! The quality is great as well! Not sure what the hell some of these people are talking about.

Remus was and is very popular in Germany and Austria specially in the VAG scene.
They also produce some if not all AC Schnitzer exhaust systems.
Remus is one of the biggest exhaust manufacturer and also partner for race teams.
You really can't go wrong with Remus.

They are...Porsche, Ducati, McLaren, Mercedes AMG.

Remus is a worlwide company. Aftermarket is just one part of the business.
