    Hi,

    i'm looking at opening up the exhaust breathing on my '97 E36 323i coupe by fitting a 328i exhaust. Just been offered one off a saloon, will it fit?

    i know it won't look great at the back until i get a rear diffuser but other wise is it a straight bolt on?

    thanks
    tom

    i think coupe and saloon exhausts are different lengths but not 100% sure

    If you get the 328i front pipes/cats and the rear box it will bolt straight onto the 323i manifolds...
    Saloon/coupe/touring 328i all share the same exhausts....
