Unhappy Exhaust options for 2013 328i X-drive (N20)

I recently went out to my local performance shop and ordered myself a borla cat-back exhaust. The guy there told me that the x-drive doesn't seem to be a issue for the fitment, which seemed very odd to me so after looking it up myself I found out that borla in fact does not make a x-drive kit, so i had to cancel my order. I was wondering what my options would be for a X-drive 328i as of now ? or should i just wait till Borla makes a x-drive kit ?

contact and see if this'll work on x-drive

if not, maybe consider just an axle-back.

Active Auto Werks has an axle back, I installed it on mine. The stock pipes are not bad, and the diameter is good.

Thanks for the suggestion, the reason i was looking for a cat-back was to get rid of the resonators. I noticed you are running H&R springs on you car, how is the ride quality, and are you running them with runflats or normal tires ?

Ride quality is stiff, I live in an urban area with a lot of potholes, so if you do, DO NOT use run-flats. It is a terrible and nearly painful ride. I am running 235 bridgestone Potenza s-04 ride quality isn't terrible, but potholes can still be jarring, but significantly less than on run-flats.

I have the supersprint catback exhaust. A little pricey but you might be able to get the muffler on sale. There are two midpipe sections that a couple of companies in the US will import in. Just make sure you order the right engine (n20 or n26) and the x drive version

I replaced mine with a 435i muffler and eliminated resonator. It sounds great IMO!

Same model, non-XDrive though. I run a AWE Touring quad and it's amazing!
