    Hi all, as the title suggests I've been looking for a new aftermarket back box for my e46 325ti, I've looked all over and all I can find are either eisenmann or super sprint back boxes and they are certainly not cheap! I seem to remember seeing a link for a blueflame backbox for the compact on here but can't for the life of me find it, so, if anyone knows of a cheap (ish) backbox for the compact then please let me know! Also wondered if I can't find anything would a backbox for a 325ci or something similar fit? I have a nasty feeling they'll be too long. Any help greatly appreciated

    The 325ti rear box is shorter

    If its for looks then you could just fit different tail pipes

    If its for sound then a after market exhaust company can make you up some think

    If its for more power then you would be better off remapping the car correctly

    Bwchiptune, it's more for sound ultimately but I want to get the exhaust and intake done then remap with those done, remapping is on my list just abit later, what would you advise for noise and hopefully a small power gain?

    Try a Simota cold air induction kit

    Your car will be silent to drive but when you open up the throttle it will turn heads

    jetex exhausts are good and reasonable cash try motorsport world as they stock these and blueflame.

    I had a look on Motorsport world yesterday and they don't do a jetex or blueflame for the 325 compact, they do stock fox exhausts though, anyone had any experience with Fox exhausts before? And bwchiptune I was actually looking at the Simota induction kit the other day, what sort of power gains could I expect with a Simota, a new exhaust and then a remap?

    It depends on the rear box and who you get it made by as it can loose power from having the rear box changed

    Remap extra 10-14bhp 15-20 ft in the mid range
    Simota can give extra 5-8bhp but help it rev better

    You will fine the standard box works well
