    Hello. First post from a new E46 owner here. I got my 2005 320CI convertible a couple of weeks ago and I’ve found the forum really useful, so thank you to everyone who posts questions and advice. There are a few things that I haven’t been able to work out yet so I thought I’d ask for some input...

    I have this really good looking 330xi manual that I really want to get but it is strait piped from the manifold back and sounds bad to me. I want to do an m50 manifold swap and this a header change but with this strait piped exhaust it would be unbearable. Does anyone know how I can get a...

    I am planning on replacing my headers with catless headers, and I am kind of tempted to start the car once the old headers are off, and without the new ones installed yet, just to see how extremely loud it would be. Would I do any damage by running the car without any exhaust connected to the...

    Hi, A while back i installed a eisenmann sport muffler with on my e46 325i. But it the sound is not hard enough to my liking especially when above 3500 rpm or above i dont hear the muffler at all just the same sound as stock. So i was thinking about deleting one of my 2 resonators. does anyone...

    Hey fanatics, I know plenty of people are always searching for high quality aftermarket parts. Exhaust cutouts are a huge market filled with junk products. After testing for a year, I decided to bring my own to the market so people can actually have something reliable and enjoy. Want to be loud...

    Good afternoon, I am about to wire up the EVC for my RE section 2 X-pipe. Where did you guys wire the terminals to? I’d rather not go to the cigarette lighter to avoid any draw long term but I’m open to ideas. Also post pics of switch placement! Thank you in advance.

    Bought my 320ci 2003 e46 last July and have been slowly repairing and replacing all the usual bits and now I've hit a wall with the exhaust, it's been to garage twice to have the exhaust repaired from the downpipe to centre section, the flange bolts had rotted away so they fitted new bolts but...

    I'm creating my own exhaust system / semi straight pipe, but I am unsure what pipes i need due to the diameter. I am going to be using a Y-pipe to get one pipe, but what exhaust diameter do I have? I have a 320i m54b22 and I found this picture, but I am unsure what is "correct" for my car.

    Im thinking of purchasing an exhaust for my 330ci but i have no idea which one to purchase, its gotta be a cat back due to not having enough time and equipment to do headers at the moment. Any suggestions on what exhaust to buy? Anybody with experience with having bought one? looking for one...

    I've just ordered eBay headers (these: For BMW E46 E39 Z4 2.5L 2.8L 3.0L L6 01-06 Performance Exhaust Manifold Headers | eBay), and I assume that most eBay headers are exactly the same, and from what I can tell I won't be able to fit the O2 sensors without relocating the mount on the header...

    Will my car freak out when I build my custom exhaust? Might do a cat delete as well, so I am curious if my O2 sensors are gonna give me all sorts of trouble? If so how could i prevent this? Thanks

    Hey guys and gals, Wondering what everyones opinion is on removing the rear cat on my car. From what I've been told from my exhaust shop is that there is a cat at the headers and another cat further down and then the 2 resonators along with the muffler. I would be keeping the headers cat but...

    I'm looking to do somethings to my exhaust to make it a medium loud if that makes sense and make the car have a deeper tone with some engine noise. What would you guys recommend I do? Let me know of parts or such please. I have no clue on what to do. F.Y.I I have a 2004 330ci and dual tips not...

    Hi guys, My catalytic converter was recently stolen and my car has been off-road for a couple of months while my mechanic has been trying to find a used one to weld on. Unfortunately, he's not been able to find a used one and is now offering to replace it with a straight pipe. He reckons that...

    Hi All, In an attempt to clean my M3's exhaust setup and pass SMOG . I went ahead and purchased Euro Headers + Euro Cats. Now since Euro headers are the raspiest, I am looking for a Supersprint resonated x-pipe (Section 2) to mate with my Supersprint Sport muffler. Preferably in the California...

    Hello internet, Im building an e46 330ci (m54b30) drift car, and I want to know whats the most effective exhaust set up for improving flow and gaining power. Right now the car has on a Mishimoto CAI and a RevMatch stage 3 tune, otherwise fully stock. I want to fully straight pipe the car but I...

    Before I start I’ve swapped out my muffler for a magnaflow 14815. Overall the car from 1-10, stock being 3, is now like a 4.5. It doesn’t really get loud until 5k and up. I want to get it to a 6 in terms of loudness where it’s noticeable but not overdoing it since it’s my daily. I know headers...
