I actually have the performance exhaust, hence I am not looking at only the downpipe only.

The only thing still holding me back from pulling the trigger on the quad set-up for my M-Sport 328i F30 is the lack of available rear diffuser options. Recommendations? (Other than the $1400 carbon 3D Designs piece)

I just installed the Meisterschaft exhaust GTC-EV 4x90mm for my 328i over the weekend and have been absolutely loving it.

However, it was not all that rosy when the pipes came. The bracket hook on the section 1 AR pipe was welded on the wrong side, so my mechanics had to saw it off and reweld on the correct side of the pipe.

Baring that incident, the sound it produces is phenomenal. In closed mode, it feels about 50% louder than the OEM exhaust if you stand right beside the pipes but if you're in the car you won't hear much of a difference at all.

Open mode is where it's at. Feels very bassy and gives off a loud 'fart' when you shift gears.

Butt-dyno tells me there is at least a good 8whp increase from 2.5k rpm to red line. Maybe a bit of torque is lost in the low rev range. I will try to dyno one of these days to confirm my suspicions.

A little video I pieced together with my in-car camera audio, which really doesn't do justice to the sound (because it is much louder in real life and the mic sucks), but I hope you get the idea of the sound you will hear in the cockpit

Pic of rear. As stated above, I'm still holding off on this mod due to lack of suitable rear diffuser options. Did you install something different? If so, from where? Did you cut the right side of the rear diffuser to fit? What line do you have? If OEM rear diffuser, was modification to the left side necessary or did the pipes fit in the factory hole??

NEED MORE INFO PLEASE!!! LOL

I'll try to get a pic up this Saturday as I just sent my car to a professional bodykit shop to patch the diffuser.

I have the luxury line with OEM bumper. When it was first installed, the diffuser was cut to allow the pipes to fit in.

The pipes do not fit in the factory hole as it is much closer to the centre. Some parts of the diffuser to the right of the original position was cut and the gap on the left, left behind by the OEM exhaust position, will be patched.

Looks like all the companies finally realized how to make the most money. They would have made a lot if they made exhaust for e90 328i.

They make exhausts for the E90 328, they are not rare or anything lol.

I was told by a couple of vendors they are taking the F30 328 more seriously in terms of developing parts because of the turbo-forced induction aspect... That people will be more into modding it due to the gains of Turbo vs NA.

I'm sure there's plenty of second hand ones for sale if you miss it that much.

the exhaust itself is a work of art compared to the Borla exhuast.
