F32 435i - quad tip exhaust in Hong Kong

I would like to know whether there are any companies that makes a quad tip exhaust for a 435i.

I would also like to know whether there are any quality tuning shops in Hong Kong. I moved back to Hong Kong a few years ago and have no tuning experience here.

quad setup on a 4 series ... doesn't look good. A bigger tip, like 100mm or 4 inches would look better. As typical, quad is for the M cars and you may be made fun of by others.


If you must go with quad. take a look here.

Well quads are not a must, but I do want to improve the acoustics and look of the exhaust. If I only get a bigger tip, the sound won't be different right? Don't get me wrong, I don't want it to sound like a trumpet, but I do want a deeper and more throaty tone. Any suggestions?

I do like their products. Does anyone have experience with their EV system? I guess they some how need to tap into the car's electrical system, but where? Where is the remote located? I am not too fond of the addition of an unsightly button on my dash.

changing tip has no relation with how the sound is at all. It's the muffler that makes the difference, therefore, if you want deeper tone, you will have to change the muffler and go straight pipe.

Love the quad-tip look...one of the few things I'll do on my F32. And no, no one will make fun of you, and it's not just "for the M cars." It's purely aesthetic as it is...the car only has one exhaust pipe leaving the engine-compartment.

Both the Eisenmann and Akrapovic (if you want to keep the factory valance untouched) systems will work on the F32.

Whether or not I can keep the factory skirts is not an issue, but I am not sure whether I have to buy a new one or just cut into the original.

Also, Akrapovic ($6k) seem to me much more pricey than the ones from GT Haus ($2-4k). What is the justification?

Not knocking on the quality but imho they're both overpriced for just a non-titanium catback system. hell, gthaus' super gt version is just straight pipes with some really nice looking welds(which no one's going to see anyway). you could probably go to a custom exhaust shop, and replicate the system for far less.

You mean the thread which had someone else responding how it's NOT $6K after everyone complained that $6K is too much for an exhaust system?

What am I getting when I am getting a new exhaust anyways? I know that the system consists of a catalytic converter, some pipes, a muffler, and then the tips. I have no idea how to choose and compare between different brands and models.

The sound. Akrapovic sounds completely different from the others. Thats how they justify charging as much as they do. If you are lookign for an exhaust I would wait for SEMA. I am sure there are going to be a handful of exhausts released for the F30/F32.

How would I know how it sounds without trying it on? To be honest... I don't really know what I want. All I know is some exhausts sounds really annoying and some sounds really nice. I am not really sure how to quantify it. It seems like the good sounding ones seem to have substance behind the sound and the bad sounding ones are just loud but... Um... I guess empty is the word I'm looking for.

Eisenmann is Superb and like Andrew said, keeps you from having to mess around with your rear bumper.

I know SuperSprint is also close to completing their 4 series quad, which should be fantastic.

Wilson exhaust in Fotan is the way, they can cut your existing valve out and insert it on a custom fab, no error codes as the oem plug goes in sweet, so BMW service wont hassle u.See Options mag.
sound is pretty damn good, u get popping in Sport and Sport+ when u lift off the gas and u can control the valve with your driving experience control, they can even cut your diffuser and fit whatever tip u want, add a k&n and u will hear your turbos and wastegate,sounds too good to be true but thats the deal.
I like Akrapovic but thats $$ for not much difference to Wilson's and the next best is MeisterS+valve cos i like those killa welds,then Eisenmann, the others are kinda boomy without a valve.

Has anyone heard of Wilson? I don't seem to be able to find their products online.
