    Hi, to start of im going to look into changing my completely standard exhaust system to something that sounds a little better, ive looked into a few makes like scorpian, miltek, but does anyone recommend a good brand, im not looking so spend huge amounts just something decent and that will give it a bit more of a grunt but also not too loud!?
    Reviews would be great thanks

    The first thing to do is get your hands on some 328 cats.
    The 323 had a single pipe system, and the 328 had dual pipes. It might not make a massive difference, but the 328 cats will fit, and although you'll want a 328 back box to match, it'll give you more options.

    I had a vortex eco-flo system fitted to my 318is:

    Vortex UK Performance Stainless Steel Exhausts, Catalytic & Silencers

    It does give you a performance gain you can really notice - the bigger the engine the better. Fuel economy has improved slightly too. Noise is not too much more than standard, but you know its on there when you boot it IYSWIM.

    Cost is about £500-600, for that you get a custom made stainless cat back system, with the vortex unit in the middle and a rear silencer. You can choose what tail pipe shape / size you want as well.

    Their HQ is in Grays Essex but they have fitting franchises around the country. Give Natalie a ring at HQ, she will give you some good advice

    Edit to say they can offer sports cats as well, but its fine with the standard cat.

    I might as well reply to this as well as it's the only questions I seem to ask on this forum, and think I now know the 323 exhaust system like the back of my hand!
    If you want to change the whole system you will need a 328 cat, then 328/M3/after market back box. From this you will get slight gains a bit of noise, from the restrictive single pipe to a twin pipe.
    If you just want a little bit more noise you could go for an after market 328 backbox (I currently have a scorpion backbox on mine with a K&N induction kit), this will sound lovely and you might get a tiny bit of HP from this.

    Drop me a PM if you need any more and I will see if I can help.
    Also are you thinking of changing this your self, or getting it done at a shop?
