okay guys what up.

Im replacing my driveshaft and guibo(flex disc) this week, and my dad says that he is willing to purchase a new muffler for me for my car.

Now, it cant be too expensive, 250-300$ max.

Now, what are all the possible companies you can think of that make an E30 Exhaust for a 325i, not the M3.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

OK everyone.......I think he said $250.00 - $300.00 max.

I cant think of any suppliers that cary muflers under $300.00 but then most just cary "cat back" systems.

You might have to go to a muffler shop, but they are going to try and put the "fart can" on your car. Anything specific to BMW performance is going to be over $300.00. Except maybe a stock muffler as long as you can buy just the muffler and have a shop weld it on.

you're not going to find a "good" aftermarket exhaust for $250-300. Or at least the ones i would consider buying for that matter.

I got a $200 Magna-Flo at Midas. It looks good and sounds totally bad-ass. Yes, I know that it's the same muffler many of the rice-jockey's put on their Civics but I must admit that the sound this thing makes with a 2.7 liter inline 6 is nothing like the sound a 1.6 liter Civic makes. Many BMW enthusuasts would coinsider what I did sacriligious but I'm happy wiht the sound, the perfomance, and the cost and that's what matters most to ME. I got the one with the dual 3 inch tips - NOT the single coffee can tip. That would definitely get me killed by the first BMW purist that saw me.

I also got an ANSA cat back. Decent quality and awsome sound for the money.
It did not fit very well and I had to get a Muffler shop to get the fit just right.

What exhaust did you end up getting? I'm also truing to upgrade my 325 exhaust but not interested in spending lots of money.
I've found on ebay, from two diferent sellers, stainless steel mufflers with dual DTM tips. These are the only universal mufflers that i could find that have two inlets which we need for our 325I and they are priced at $72, here are links.
Both have 2.5" dual inlets and 3" dual outlets.
I would like to know what everyones opinion is on these

I understand not wanting to shell out for a genuine E30-specific muffler, but seriously, a $72 eBay fart can just can't be justified. Now you're just buying parts because you want to have aftermarket stuff, not because it'll help your car performance-wise or (in the case of those things) aesthetically.

I purchased one of the mufflers from the Ebay at $72 and had it installed this weekend. Its a little louder then expected but looks very good.
Performance? Took a nice sunday ride in the mountains and did'nt notice any loss of performance but not any gains either.
bmws have good exhaust systems, with perfect balance between sound and performance (so all that extra HP is questionable, 5 HP on the dyno/paper means nothing) but you can never be wrong with aftermarket straight through muffler, that is if you dont mind extra noise.
It costed me $150 with installation, beats anything else right there!
