hey guys im looking into buying a new muffler (one that gives me some sound) for my car, and i need to know what size inlet to get? Is my car stock 2.25 or 2.5 Also if its 2.25 could a 2.5 inlet muffler be welded on there, or would i have to get 2.5 piping fromthe cat back for this muffler to work! thanks for the help!

David

Go out to your 318 (it is a 318, right?) and measure it.
If you get a muffler with a bigger inlet, that is OK.
Take it to a muffler shop and they will make it fit.

why not buy a kit from a bimmer tuner? they come with all the pipes already; no need to worry about size.

thats the other option but the money there... is rather spendy.... but you get what you pay for, are you talking like some catback? its hard to find catback for a 318 too! but if you can help that would be great! thanks!

and

bmpd carries a good selection of catback exhausts for the 1.8L, you should check them out.

Those ebay mufflers will also change the sound, but the quality is definitly lacking.

They will make it fit with an adapter. If you are going for one of the two you posted from eBay, do the first one. It will give you the M3 look. But it might reqire some cutting of the bumper skirt.

actaully i just found this one too! i kind of like the dual tips that curl up! Im just realy afraid of buying a muffler that sounds like a little ricer honda going down the road you know what i mean? Can you tell by looking at a muffler if it will deliver that sound? Cuz if this one looks like itll do that! i dont want it!

There's really no way to tell unless you have heard one in person. it very well could sound like a can of bees, or it could sound deep. Since we're talking about 1.8, the odds of bees are high.

so el presidinte would buying a catback exhuast system from like bmpdesign be a better choice, and pretty much eliminate my chances of getting a can of bees..
