I just purchased a magnaflow exhaust with 2.5 inlet and 2.5 outlet. Dual in dual out. I'm sure my stock exhaust (325is) is a bit smaller than that. Will it be hard for the muffler shop to weld this on? It was the the only muffler that magnaflow had that was dual in/out and was the right canister size. I think i might need a pipe to convert the size. Hopefully not. Well the exhaust was only like 65 online. I would highly recommend it if you are looking for an exhaust.

If you can't afford it, make it!

a muffler shop will have no problem welding that on. i'm not sure if theyll need to use new pipes, but if they can use your existing pipes it would probably be around $50

I help my uncle install his muffler at the shop. It cost about 40. I hope they don't charge me more for stupid stuff.

Last time i took my uncle's car to the shop it took about say, 5 minutes to weld it. They are fast.

The only thing i'm afraid of is that they will charge me for some adapter or extra weldings cause its a dual exhaust.

the stock muffler is dual in dual out as well and you wont have to mess with bolts and adapters if they weld it on the cat. and even if they take 5min they still charge you for a full hour, unless your uncle gets you a deal
