Completely stock for now B58



The only mod Iíve done is the Mperf LSD diff, breaking it in as we speak, 400km to go 👌

40th Anniversary look so special and MP LSD is a great first upgrade.


MPPSK no doubt would make a great second

Thank you 😊

Mppsk no doubt would be great but donít want to pay That kind of money when Iíll be tuning it stage2 anyway, is there a way to get the valved exhaust feature without the tune? Aftermarket or otherwise?

I know Fi, fabspeed, Remus, Akrapovic and Armytrix offer a valvetronic exhaust options, no doubt all will sound amazing. You may have the added cost of a midpipe for a full cat back like MPPSK

I was lucky in the UK as we saw the MPPSK drop to 50% off retail so it was a no brainier for me, and more than happy with the very mild tune it offered. I’m surprised you haven’t seen similar discounts now the G series has arrived with dealers.

I havent really checked to be honest, just thought that it would be up there in price, do the aftermarket options utilize the valve ie quiet in comfort mode, and louder in sport / sport + ?

Yes they use the valve closed on comfort and open in sport.


Itís worth checking with a few dealers as all the uk ones were looking to shift the MPPSK stock as is now all old stock and unfortunately donít work with the 340i from June 2018 onwards due to OPF filter.

Thanks everyoneÖ

Look at what just came in 🤪😁



I asked them to get the pipes as flush with the bumper as possible but the service guy said itís as deep as they go , I mean I looks fine, maybe a few more mm in would have been perfect 👍



As for the sound , yeah haha 😂 it doesnít hold back in sports +



Pretty much straight pipes with the valves open ooof



So thatís

LSD done ✅

MPPSK done ✅

Whatís next ?

How about that sound when you let off in 2nd and 3rd


Mmmm maybe next could be springs and spacers. 12mm front and 15mm rear with Eibach Pro gave mine such a nice stance

In fact maybe next should be m performance rear diffuser part painted.

The over run burbles are insane!

Was worried about how loud cold start at home would be this morning after hearing them start it up at the dealer, but was indoors, outside it wasnít nearly as bad, I mean even the stock exhaust is quite loud on initial start.

During a fairly spirited drive this morning Iím definitely feeling the increased power and torque, although at first itís hard to gauge with all the exhaust drama going on

All in all very happy 😃, at one stage i revved it up to 5000rpm and backed off, then got back on the gas and backed off a second time and the exhaust let off a mighty Crack! Like a gunshot lol 😂

I quickly switched back to comfort as pedestrians looked around, probably thinking did that sound just come from that stock looking 3 series haha

Bit of an update , Iíve taken the car back as I noticed the right pipe is sitting a bit lower than the left so Iíve taken it back to see if they can adjust it a bit more.

Not sure why it would be lop sided unless one of the rubber hangers is stretched.

Edit: ok got the car back and they managed to get it straight ( manipulated the midpipe and axle back) and they managed to get the tail pipes deeper how I originally wanted them 😎



Iím noticing the power is also increasing , feeling faster each drive woo!

Well that's good news that they were able to sort out the tail pipes for a better fit. No doubt that would have bugged even more over time.

Definitely think you should add the m performance rear diffuser to complete the look.
