Hi guys!

Anyone know a shop that can cut out diffuser for exhaust install?
I'm planning to buy AWE exhaust quad but diffuser needs to be cut in order to fit the exhaust

Have you found someone? Hartley at Flow Auto Solutions and Technic ((604) 218-9599) or Wei at TopStar Autoworks ((778) 968-7777) would likely do it for you, if you haven't found anyone yet. Both in Richmond and both corner BMW Certified Techs at BJ (not that it really matters in this case. Lol.) good luck!

Muffler Man used to be good 5+ years ago. I heard their quality and workmanship has gone way down after they changed owners a few years back. I've heard some bad stories from them the last few years so I would be careful.

Yeah, I think the owner retired and sold the shop back in 2018 to the neighboring shop. Can't comment on the quality now but the price/quality of work was really good with the old owner. Not sure if muffler man cuts out diffusers though.

I switched out a stock 328 muffler for a 340 at muffler man, but they made it clear they are not liable for any damages to the stock diffuser so I ended up installing the diffuser/ connected the exhaust flag after the job myself.

The job was around $200.

Altering diffuser, will need to be done at a body shop... probably better to get an aftermarket lower diffuser or see if anyone is selling one on FB marketplace/ craigslist that fits.
