Exaust Help

Hey guys, I have an 87 325i sedan and I need to change the rear exaust section. I wanted to go with a performance system. Anyone ever used the stainless steel cat back exaust system on ebay. this is the link to the item, eBay Motors: BMW E30 325I 325IX STAINLESS CATBACK EXHAUST SYSTEM (item 380095141033 end time Jan-13-09 12:55:54 PST)
Just wanted to know if this is something I should consider, or if I should just stay away from this all together?

They sound really nice but need some modifications to fit properly from my experience. Sounds like an eismann exhaust IMO.

I called them up and they told me that it will work on my car. I am a bit skeptical though cause I drive a 3 series sedan and performance parts are usually designed for the sportier coupe. Just wanted to know if there is much of a difference in the two that would cause this system to be a problem, and to know how reputable this system is.

I wouldn't mess with that crap...if you want a good fairly inexpensive cat-back system then go to Ireland Engineering | Racing and Performance Parts for BMW E30 and 2002 and other Cars, that is Ireland Engineering and they manufacture really well made products.

E-bay would be a no go for me personally. Bosal makes a pretty good catback for the E30. Not too loud, not too quiet. It's just right.

I would suggest just spending a little more cheese and getting a system from Turnermotorsports.com.
