exhaust system modifications - legal in Germany?

Can anyone tell me with some degree of certainty whether or not it's legal to use an aftermarket exhaust system on a street bike in Germany?

I have been led to believe that as long as a manufacturer's aftermarket exhaust system meets the e3 standard, then it's apparently legal for street use (with baffles inserted, or course).

I'm not looking for opinions, rather, I'm looking for solid advice or experience -- hopefully from someone who is from Germany, who lives in Germany, or who is German.

European Standard (97/24/CE du 17 juin 1997)

If it has a "E" number you're alright if it is not a Geman registered bike. If it's a local bike it has to be Tuv certified and if you want to put on another pipe, you have to get new certificate.
I'm not from Germany, but from the Netherlands. A lot of Dutch riders get fined in Germany for loud pipes, they don't like that in Germany. Also if you can't produce the silencer (or what that thing is called ;) ) you can't ride further and have to fix it first.
But I know for sure that if you ride a foreign bike and the pipe has an "E" number you're fine.

This likely is not the definitive answer you are seeking.

I was told by Ducati Saarland that the aftermarket exhausts can only be used legally in Germany for German registered bikes if they have been certified to meet the E3 standard and have the same type of markings you show. I have a Quat-D on my Multistrada which has similar markings, the only aftermarket exhaust that meets this requirement.

@Marret: that applies for German registered bikes, not for foreign registerd bikes.

yes you can use an aftermarket exhaust but you need the TUeV approval certificate for the exhaust stating its allowed for your model of bike and have it entered on the fahrzeugausweis.
