F30 335i M Performance Exhaust Install DIY (with Exhaust Clips)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
As I said here is my DIY for the M performance exhaust. Not very difficult. The dealerships charge hundreds of dollars to do this and its so easy. It took me about 1h and 15m because I took photos and stopped a couple times.

I paid $900 for the exhaust shipped to my door and $0 for installation.

Please do this at your own risk. Iam not responsible if you mess something up. If you feel like you cant, dont attempt it. Take it to someone.

Tools:
Exhaust cutting tool, I rented one at Autozone for $50
Ratched
17MM socket
Wire (golf tee mod)
Wire cutter
Pry bar or screwdriver.
Car ramps or jack stands.

If you guys have any questions just ask. Hope this helps, and Enjoy the exhaust.
Sorry for the few typos I was typing fast trying to get done so I can go watch the Bears game.
EDIT: Fixed Typos.

VIDEOS:

Took some videos before and after I bolted on the M Performance. I used my Iphone5 so hope it came out ok. I pointed the speaker towards the exhaust for better sound.






EDIT: Here is the video after 1000 miles. Its "borken in". I think it sounds deeper, and it did get louder. I expected this reading up on past threads. I think its the perfect amount of exhaust noise and its not intrusive at all. If you get a killer deal on it I suggest get it.
Its a warm start, revs are up to 4k, golf tee mod done flap fully open. I started in comfort mode and switched to sport in the end of the video.

Congrats on the marriage, I am getting married next year as well. She got a fat ring I got a F30 lol jk. No I set money aside for the exhaust specifically.

As for the 3 piece piping, I know it looks strange. What they did was add those big chrome tips with the M logo, and instead of them being sort of tapered to fit the muffler pipes they used a smaller pipe welded the tips on it, and then slipped that on the muffler tips and then welded that. Its a bit strange but whatever saves them money I guess.

Thanks for putting up the thread on the front page. I posted this DIY a few months ago, I didnt really think anyone cared or wanted to know how to do it. Plus everybody is way more interested in coding so most regular DIY's get overshadowed by the cooler stuff

No spit just good old wire. It's the only thing that works for now, untill someone comes up with something different (I have something in the works stay tuned)

F30 community is still fairly new, but theres a lot of good DIY's on there already. I have quite a few myslef. Squeak and rattle fixes, fascia removal, radar detector hardwire. Im planning a ton more DIY's in the spring when the weather gets nicer. Planning a laser jammer DIY. Thats should be fun.

I Heard the n54 is way louder and more aggressive, but thats just hearsay. As for the e9x N55 no clue. Just the clips on youtube for aftermarket exhaust.
