What will happen if I replace the exhaust of my 530 2002 with M5 exhaust (with 4 pipes)?
I am asking this question because Ive got an offer of back bumper, side mirrors, interior, etc of an M5 2002 in good condition. It will be ugly to put the bumper of the m5 & on the 530 without having four pipes exhaust.
I know the seats, door panels, side mirrors, steering wheel will fit but can the exhaust be used & what are the benefits and/or the side effects?
The M5 is a v8. Your car is an i6. Get an aftermarket 4-pipe exhaust if it matters that much to you. I think you can also buy an M rear diffuser that will fit the M5 bumper, but with only the void for one set of pipes.
