Vrsf revised b58 downpipe review

I just wanted to take the time out to appreciate Tiago@VRSF for selling these downpipe at such an affordable cost. Tiago told me they are in works of revising this downpipe and I waited to order the reviesed edition. I had a 328i n20 and went with ER downpipe before but really wanted VRSF this time due to the cost saving. I am happy to say it fit perfectly and took about 40 minutes to install on jackstands.

It seems like this edition has a different flex joint and the fitment is spot on. The welds and overall quality look amazing and I really like the added VRSF logo (which they had on other b58 DP too, but I wanted to point it out lol)


The procedure was essentially letting the car cool down, unpluging to O2 sensors from the top and removing the airbox to unbolt the V-band clamp on the turbo. Then I lifted the car up and unbolted the midpipe clamp along with the bolt holding the midpipe. then took the OEM cat out and did the reverse to botton it all back up.

I have MPPSK so the sound is literally amazing with valve open, but valves closed is quite a bit louder aswell. Im also loving the turbo sound LOL.

Thank you again VRSF for not taxing us on BMW parts and making these parts fit/work great at such a good price.

What's new about the flex joint?

Does it actually flex this time?
