    Hi,

    I'm new (relatively) to the Bimmer world. Mines an E36 323i Coupe. I know in a few months when the exhaust that's on her goes (it's showing signs!) I'll want an after market one AND, I know people rave about Catback and Scorpion BUT, is getting an off the shelf better than say a custom build? I've had a quote from Longlife exhausts for a Stainless system from manifold on for £350...built to sound how I want and styled how I want...can Catback / Scorpion pre builds be better / sound better than this? Which will improve performance most (if at all?).

    Thanks for any help,

    Sean

    Hi Sean. Ive retitled your thread to include your car details and moved it to the tuning forum for you...

    I would recommend Scorpion. I have them on both of my E36's and they are very good quality and fit with no problems.
    Speak to MotechMike on here, he is a supplier for scorpion exhausts

    Scorpion mate

    Good quality, great sound and I experienced customer service that was second to none when I had a problem with a centre section that blew the baffles due to having a de-cat pipe fitted

    Hi Sean..

    We can offer the cat back by scorpion for £294.95.. (sorry we dont fit + 9.95 for p+p).. I would say there a lot better than a custom one off... As for power the gains are not big.. But will well help get rid of any flat spots help with the car reving and sound unreal !!!!!

    323i (E36) 95-98 STW £294.95 H/S

    Thanks Mike

    the 323 shares the restictive single pipe exhaust/cat with the 320
    so the best up grade is to fit the 328 twin cat exhaust then get a cat back if still required
    the manifolds are the same it's an easy cheap swap
