Hi all. I'm still reasonably new to the e36 owners club. I have an afforadably cheap 316i, not one of the big boys. My exhaust ras gotten rusty and was condering replacing. A friend has an exhaust he does not need but it was from a 325i. Does anyone know if this will still fit on my bimma.

Cheers for looking

Ram

i dont think so, the headers are different, maybe from the cat-back you can change it.

The 325 exhaust will not fit your 316 becasue the two engines are completely different. One is a 6 cylinder and the other is a 4.

Well there is more too it then that........ but in this case, your basically right. =)

The exausts found on the M50/M52 will not bolt up, and the hangers are different.

Actually, it will fit. The only differences are that the 316/318 have single pipe exhaust systems and the 325 has a dual pipe exhaust system. All you have to do to make it fit is have a "Y" pipe welded inbetween to connect the dual pipe to the single. It's very simple, a lot of people do this. There are no complications with hangers or mounting positions. Also, with the dual tip exhaust, you will need a new rear valence or you can cut and modify your current one, also a sinch.

You can put any exhaust on your car you want if you don't mind making modifications.

That's not exactly true. Different cars have different lengths and bends in the exhaust pipe. They would be too short, too long or even bend the wrong way. In this case, everything bolts up perfectly. You just have to insert the "Y" pipe somewhere.

BTW, I installed an M3 exhaust on my friends 318i. It works great. The same cannot be done for the Z3 or 318ti as the rear end is shorter. They require custom made exhaust systems and cannot share the rest of the E36 exhaust systems.

cool.

Isn't the 316, basically a 318 with the rear end shaved off? Your gonna have to cut a bunch, and just eyeballing the two exaust cans they don't look like the brackets are right. But thats what I thought about the 318 brackets before your post too.

No, 316 is a 1.6L and the 318 is a 1.8L. What do you mean by the rear end shaved off? Do you mean the 318ti? That's the hatchback model with the E30 rear end, both the Z3 and 318ti have shorter rear ends to the exhaust systems are shorter as well.

He said he was putting a 316i into a 325i, so nothing has to be shaved off though.

That's a picture of a hatchback. The 318ti was the only e36 hatchback made in America.

So, it seems that putting an exhaust will be possible but may cost a bit. Does anyone know how much at all. Basically, I've been offered a big bore exhaust from a 325i and wont to fit it to my 316i. He only wants 50 for it so dont want to spend a huge amount on fitting it.
