At the risk of being spanked by the purists, and yes I looked a lot through this website before posting this, has anyone considered simply removing the forward muffler on their 328i? I have a 2009 E90 which is way too quiet. The exhaust options are numerous and some very costly. Why not take it to a muffler shop and simply install a custom made piece of pipe in the forward muffler's place. Perhaps it would confuse the emissions computer?
I just spent a little time laying on my back looking under the car. I was starting to think the "resonator" was perhaps a catalytic converter. I'd wager a little difference would be realized by removing it. Do you know where the catalytic converter is? It's got to be upstream of the resonator. Just took delivery last night, got a lot to learn. And, sir, I know what a muffler does. Thanks
I looked at Magnaflow's web site and saw nothing that I thought would work without a ton of welding and modifications. So, I went to my BMW dealer and popped for their system. $1449. plus another hundred in small parts and still don't know how much the install will run. The 2009's are, according to their parts folks, are somewhat different than the 08's. Again, I've spent a ton of time on the net looking around. Magnaflow's will be cheaper I bet but it just went into production today.
