    Hi all.
    I've recently fitted my AC Schnitzer cat-back exhaust and its disappointingly quiet!!
    Can somebody please confirm for me that the bits circled in red are not anything to do with the cat, cause I'm thinking of having them choped out for a bit of extra noise! Do you think it will sound nice or am I being silly??

    Apologies if posted in wrong section!

    not sure on the 328 but on m3's there is a small box there so should be ok to remove but wouldnt have thought it would make that much difference tbh

    Cheers, as long as it doesn't affect emissions for MOT time then might as well chop them out, may make it sound a bit deeper!

    Hi Guys!!!

    Just so everyone knows: - they are NOT cats, they are just silencers - I have removed these on my car and all they seem to be were straight though pipes that had a bit of webbing on the part that bulges out. They are pretty heavy too!

    Shouldn't have any issues

    thought thats what they are as said previously, but cant see them making a difference power or noise wise tbh you will probably get a horrible rasp,yuk, you would be better off with a full custom made front section like i have on my m3

    They look very much like cats in the picture.

    get rid of the standard front section, get some sports cats and free flow silencers in and it should give you what you want noise wise and a healthy power increase

    Cheers Mike. Did it make any difference to the sound, was it any deeper?

    I will get some sports cats soon as I have some more spare money! I just want a bit more nosie for now as the AC Schnitzer exhaust I have brought is really quite
    I don't want loud, just a bit deeper and more aggresive....
