tomorrow i am installing my m3 exhaust.. and i was looking under the car and noticed the grey insulation(heat shield) has tore off from the bolts that were holding it up.. they are held on pretty crappy in the first place. anyways.. Do i need to buy a new one, or can i rig it up to slap it back on.. i noticed that the m3 exhaust comes with a heat sheild over the pipes. so can i just take the other one off and count on the m3 one to do the job..

thanks..

mine wasnt in bad shape when i put my TSE on...but i would think about replacing it. you could probably rig up someting which i would do, as along as there is something there that would work. i would assume its there for a reason lol. i higly suggest that u dont keep it off though . good luck. take some pics if you have time thanx

yeah, the foil shield rips and tears after a while. try to screw it back up on the same holes if you can. maybe use a larger screw with a washer to make the area holding it larger. thats what i did and it worked great.
