Yeah the tip is 3.5in but i for got how big the piping is. The 318is suspension is basically the same but no aluminum control arms, and the swaybars are a different size[I think they're (12mm(is) and 14mmM3)], also the spring rate on the stock springs aren't as stiff.

I was actually going to jump on him about the 3.5 inch piping, haha. But you beat me to it. That is crazy. I hope its only 2.5 from the manifold back. That would be so useless, at first I was like "Does this dude have a turbo or something?" and spent like 5 minutes trying to find out. But yeah... I'm going to get 2.5 inch piping and a normal looking muffler (Assuming I don't go turbo...:P)

are you talking about getting 2.25 from the manifold back or from the cat back? cause on my e30 318is the piping is already 2.25 stock, whether it's like that all the way up i'm not sure but you might want to look into that before buying anything.

If you really want to drift I would say put on narrower wheels and tires, its going to be way hard to drift with 7.5" tires and under 100 whp.
