    Ok, im very frustrated so bear with me!

    Ive bought an exhaust from ebay to go on my coupe, after i bought it i asked on here and apprently it dosent fit? so i then went and bought a magnex cat back exhaust from a 98 318is so i thought great that will bolt straight on. so i got all excited and put my car in the garage, jacked it up and put my new exhaust under the car to marry it up, and guess what? where the end of the pipe is on my new one, there is nothing to bolt it too?? on mine you got the back box, then the pipe then it goes to a small box (cat??) then about 6" of pipe then the join. all points are welded right up to the 1st join?? im puzzled now as if i was to bolt on my new exhaust to the join it would be too short?

    Somebody please help??? lol.

    I dunno whats happened Zimmer, but you have just bought another standard 318i exhaust....

    Your car has a unique exhaust and no other 3 series exhaust will fit a 318IS like yours.
    They are a different design and have a small silencer in the centre.
    This is the kind of thing you will need
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-318iS-E36-...d=p3286.c0.m14
    Notice the small silencer in the pipework...
