    could anybody give me some advice please as to which backbox to fit to my e46 318ci which is on a 53plate it has the 1995cc engine. i am not too interested on increasing performance ,as from experience on other cars in the past any increase will be small by just changing the backbox. i am on quite a tight budget at the moment,but i dont think i can stand the sight of the original peashooter exhaust poking out from the rear of my lovely coupe anymore , i think a twin pipe simular to the 325ci or 330 would look a lot better. a little bit more noise wouldnt go amiss either, but not too much that it would ruin the drive . i dont want to go for a universal backbox as i have heard some horror stories about the fitting of them. if anyone knows of a supplier and maybe rough price of what i need i would be really grateful

    Hi Paul,

    I have a 2002 318ci and have fitted a cat back mid sound exhaust with twin pipes. It looks great and sounds really good, not loud, just a nice growl when you put your foot down, i also had a pipercross induction kit fitted to go with it which is great, cost of exhaust was £270, the induction kit was £74 both fitted at MIJ performance in my home town Walsall
