You will have to wait i think. If not then you can buy the diffuser of the 335i and go custom.

Do you want it to look like a 328i or 335i?

I think the tailbox is probably interchangeable. Do u have M-sport or a Lines car? U'll need to change the valance too.

Then it's much less work as the valance is a separate piece which can be changed at a low cost. Otherwise u'll need to change the whole bumper.

I agree!

I'm pissed off

Why on a 520 2 tailpipes and on a 320 only 1?

If there's i mod available i would be glad to hear it. Anybody got some news about that? Maybe M-performance or something else?

I have ordered the 320i, would also be interested in getting twin pipes... Strange that the 520 and X3 2.0d has this, while the 320 only has a single one...

Update...spoke to my local parts manager...the issue seems to be getting a diffuser for the 715 aero kit...BMW uk haven't yet released the parts. No issue in getting the twin pipes but would prefer a new diffuser rather than having the original cut. Thanks for the link...I've emailed these guys to see if they could get the diffuser from Germany and ship it over.

The one in the link from Commanderke is the same as the one advertised on the BMW M Performance aftersales page right? Only 202 Euro's?

Triple 7 what was the price for yours from BMW?

Any official information yet?

I am getting my 320i delivered in two weeks and have already ordered the M Performance twin pipes and a 328i diffuser so if this is true might cancel those...

Jcastle: I though the M Performance kit did not fit the 320i, only diesel models?

According to my dealer who is the importer of Hartge to Norway there will be a Hartge kit available next month, but I don't have any more details.

OK, thanks, let us know if you get more information.

That's correct, the M Performance exhaust will not fit. I haven't yet figured the full reason for this, except that the pipe coming to the catback is 60mm in 320i and 75mm at 328i.

The twin tailpipe should (I am planning this) fit, as long as you change the diffuser (from 328i) and cut the off the tailpipe coming from the catback. Apparently this needs to be done to the 320d also, so it's a bit strange that BMW has excluded 320i from the supported list. Maybe it's one of those silly little things they do to get more people to buy the 328i...

I am getting my car in two weeks so then I will know for sure as my dealer has promised to take a look at it more closely and figure out how to install it.

Just FYI if anyone is interested, Remus has "released" two exhaust options for the 320i (not M Sport though for some reason). It's the same exhaust as for the 328i but you will need a adapter from 60mm to 75mm which they are also selling.

The reason sharing is the adapter. Because the only difference between 320i/320d compared to the 328i should be the pipe coming to the back exhaust, 60mm vs. 75mm, I assume that with this adapter you would also install the OEM M Performance exhaust to the 320i/320d. I am sure it would need a bit modification but it would interesting to try it out...

http://www.remus.eu/shop-pkw/bmw/3-s...b20b-2012.html

Adapter K7, length 100 mm; inner 60,2 auf outer 75
