My '16 330e M-sport Mineral Grey

I've been lurking here for several years (initially registered when I had a 320d E90 a while back, peeking at my join date it's actually 10 years ago ), thought I might as well start a thread about my current car.

I've had it for almost two years now, got some new wheels on it, black m performance grille, blacked out rear reflectors, and moderate tune (BMS Intake, JB+, custom exhaust).

Plan to do some additional mods, so I'll update this thread with that.

And a couple of pics. The exhaust tips has been replaced since these pics were taken (summer 2017), similar style but slightly bigger (2x3"). I can take some new ones when I get to my next planned mod probably (high flow downpipe)

Plan for mods at the moment is a new downpipe (high flow 200cel cat) that has been ordered, and I'm planning to replace the jb+ with a remap (need something to supress the CEL from the downpipe anyway) - currently considering to wait for the new Bootmod3 for B48 if that comes soon, otherwise it'll probably be a custom remap from a local shop here in Norway.

It'll be interesting to see how well this works (temporary measure until I get something that removes the CEL + to avoid immediate CEL after servicing the car if they overwrite the tuning).

I haven't installed it yet, and no, I will have a local tunershop install it. I'll see if I can take some pictures of the install, or at least stock vs new pipe.

As I live in Norway, there's lots of snow and salt and dirt taking a toll on the car during winter. So a perfectly normal thing to do on a Saturday evening in early March, is of course to clean the tail pipes after a long cold period.

Re this thread: https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1589538 - I'm not super happy with the sound insulation on the F30 platform. I've already insulated all four doors and under the back seat. I've now also booked a combination treatment of the undercarriage, rust preventive tectyl as well as sound dampening material on top of that.

I'm also seriously considering to do the full floor + trunk (ripping out seats and everything) and treat with dynamat xtreme + dynaliner. Will update thread with results.

Can't wait for the Bootmod3 for B48 to be released, looks like it won't be long now. While I'm waiting I've ordered at least ordered the cable I need..

Where did you get the exhaust tips from?
I've a 330e and currently looking at some mod. While still under warranty I'll leave my DTUK tuning unit in place, but I might be tempted buy Bootmod3.

I searched the internet for days, because naturally I decided on a design that were almost impossible to find in the exact right size - anyway, finally found a set of quad pipes off ebay in hong kong or something, so bought those and used one side (still have the right hand side pipes in the garage somewhere).


Think it was from this guy, they have tons of different models https://www.ebay.com/usr/xtips4u?ul_noapp=true

Did you have to cut off the ends of the existing pipes to weld the new pipes on?
I take it you still have the original back box on the car..

No, I've modified the exhaust so I've replaced the mid muffler with a straight pipe, and the back box has been replaced by a high flow (and half as big) Magnaflow unit (I think it's this one or something similar https://www.magnaflow.com/products?partNumber=11216). And yes, it's welded on.

We're both the bank box and the mid muffler replaced at the same time? The reason I'm asking is. I was thinking to sound the mid muffler delete and I was wondering how is sounded or if it made a difference at all?
Do you have any videos of the modified exhaust?
Also you've got you car remapped to 330bhp? Does the electric motor play well with the remap?

I did the mid muffler delete first, it made almost zero difference. So it's not worth it to do that alone. Then it's probably better to do just the back box and leave the mid muffler.

I had the car running on a Ventura Tuning piggy back earlier, but at the moment I'm only on JB+, waiting for Bootmod3.

The electric motor / interaction between the two works just fine even though the car is tuned.

Is there much of a difference in feel and performance between the Ventura unit and the remap? What have you noticed as the main differences?
Apologies for all the questions!
