i have been noticing a rattle or a flap kind of sound when i accelerate lately. a friend said..what is that sound..it sounds gay....(wow...)

then my step dad had to move my car off the street when i was gone to put it on our drive way. he also said that i should have our mechanic look at it because it sounds louder and kinda sounds like there is something loose.

we had a problem before, there was a crack or hole some where in the exhaust system, so our mechanic welded it back up. this was about 1 year ago. maybe not even.... by the way i fuckin hate mesquitos. i think i might have west nile because i have been bit like a million times and they are all over my bathroom..f|_|ckers..


does anyone else have this problem or know what might be going on... there goes another one of my paychecks........

is there a better than stock aftermarket exhaust out there that doesnt cost 700 bucks? thats about how much you can get a remus for, but its not even worth it for this car....

Try Brullen or Magnaflow.

$200 for the muffler and $100 for the piping (if you want a catback) and $50 for the install.

Approx. $350+

My 318 makes lots of noises. But I ignore them because it's a 4 cyl and it's noisey. Also, I've done too much to my car to worry about noises.

Please try to stay on topic and answer the person's question. There is a reason why we have a members lounge.

Yes I know I'm a tight ass :nana

arnt magnaflows for trucks though? will it produce any premature wear to anything on my car? is it really loud, i dont want anything too too loud, but a little louder cant hurt. i know people with magna flows on their trucks, will it sound okay on my 318 and not be too ricey? What is this brullen? are they reputable?


and no, i dont have an outhouse. they like bathrooms because it is moist or humid(its called a shower). plus i have a sister, so its a jungle.

i dont care what it sounds like.... if i were to do somthing about my exhaust system, i would probably want to get everything, not just a muffler... if i just change the muffler, it wont do much besides make it sound louder, right? and i dont want a fart box...
