First photos and video of the Borla F30 328i exhaust

This is the prototype, but very close to what the production will look like. Efficient mandrel bent and lightweight. Direct bolt-on with no cutting or welding.

I am certain you can make the OE tips work on this exhaust. However, some welding may be required.

Anything is possible as the finalized production model has not been confirmed.

However, this photo is likely before the system without the resonator as it is the same car.

Because certain RPMS or times, like on the highway, you can get sounds you do not want-such as droning.

Borla will make the right call.

My CC catback got away with one muffler and was not over the top. But it's a fine line.

This system should have the new Borla ATTAK muffler, which a tunable multi-core technology. From what I heard initially, it has plenty of roar! I'll try to take a sound clip soon.
