This might be part of the recycler newer cars use. It recirculates spent gasses into the chamber to 1 clean the exhaust (gasses burns longer and cleaner) and to reduce potential knock.

M3 you aware of any this tubing on the late e30s? Im pretty sure this feature wasnt introduced untill people became environmentally aware (those bitches)

No. It has nothing to do with the EGR system.

Then what is it?
It actuates a flap to create more restriction in the exhaust at low RPM's for more low-end torque. Also lowers the exhaust noise slightly.

it doesnt cause any problems......
ive plugged up mine, as i have changed the exhaust system......

i wasnt sure if the pipe sucked or blowed, so i blocked it up incase it did suck, so it wouldnt pull any shit through it!

:thumbs

it does make you exhaust a little louder if you disconnect that flap (if thats what your thinking of doing!)
