    I', oing to make a comment regarding the cheap exhausts.... I had a 03 plate Golf before I got the BMW. Shortly before I parted with it the exhaust dropped off. It was the original. I took it to a local exhaust place and they charged me around £150 for a new one. It sounded like a TANK. I took it back and they said 'oh it will quieten down'. A few hundred miles later is still sounded like a tank so I took it back and they replaced it. The second one sounded the same! In the end I put some extra money and they replaced it with a genuine exhaust. The car was then as silent as the day it was bought.

    In other words unless you're going to go stainless steel I wouldnt touch anything other than genuine parts. Because if the car sounds rough / there is more cabin noise than there should be you could put potential private buyers off.

    Just my 2p anyways....

    Oh and BTW I was quoted £380 to have a custom SS one made from a powerflow dealer, BMW quoted me £460 for one from them. Thats for the middle section and back box. At the end of the day if you spend £400 on a new exhaust, put that on the price you're selling it for. I wouldnt mind paying extra for a car that had a decent brand new exhaust on it over the same car with the old original or a cheap one that sounded shit.
