M Performance exhaust for 328i

Crap. I thought this time would be different and I wouldn't go down the path of modifying the car. I was wrong.

Once you go to the link, click drivetrain, then click the exhaust pic in the top middle, below the picture of the exhaust you will see a 1/3, click the next button to hear a sound clip of the M performance exhaust (2/3), if you go to 3/3 you will hear a comparative clip of the 328i stock exhaust.

Aww man..


So other than local dealerships, where could one buy it and get installed reasonably?

Any good grease monkey can do it, auspuffs are relatively straightforward. I used a BMW specialist Midas dealership in Brisbane to do my Remus exhaust on the E82 and they did a great job.

The trick is sourcing it for a globally competitive price, BMW Australia rips us on M Performance gear prices, for example I think the M Perf BBK weighs in at something like $6.5k locally compared to $2.1k plus tax and shipping from the US.

Do it
And if you find a good supplier let me know! My only concern about sourcing from OS would be part number variations. I know the 335 version has a different part number in the US.

I also wonder if a 320i owner would be interested in buying your stock exhaust? Same engine, same exhaust manifold right?

No idea. I know there are a number of drivetrain variances between the 320i and 328i.
