    hi, i like the twin polished exit on these and would really like to put one on my 318ci, would it fit?

    if not, does anyone know of anywhere i could get one similar that doesnt make me sound like a chavtastic nova?

    ive just fitted my sport rear bumper and need a decent tail-pipe to go with it see!

    cheers

    Shouldn't be any problem with having a twin exit exhaust on that, not sure if a 325/330 BB would fit straight on though...

    Someone in the know will comment soon!

    No, the 325/330 will not fit. The 318 only has a single pipe going to the rear box. The 325/330 has 2! It will cost more to fabricate the pipes to fit, than to buy a new backbox. You best buying a Remus or a Supersprint backbox.

    just noticed einenmanns go for around £500! wont be paying that. im thinking scorpion is my best bet, the monaco exit. anyone got this?

    are there any other brands that are around the £200 mark, the quieter the better to be honest, definitly dont want it to be gargling away on tick over! im wanting to move away from the days of my saxo vts.

    basically i want something that fits my model but looks like the 330 chromed exit-

    any help much appreciated.

    I think you'll be pushing it to get a decent new exhaust system for £200, if you can stretch to £300/£350 then you could get a remus system with twin tail pipes.

    If you want a decent system you have to pay the money for it. Or you could just get a 325/328/330 with the exhaust system and the 6 Cyclinder engine to boot (which sound lovely!)

    only want the back-box, and cant afford the 325/328/330 at the minute, probably not such a good idea with 9 points either. thats why the 318ci is perfect for me. looks the part, but goes like fart.

    Try here mate www.elitedirect.com for the Remus backbox only. Nice qauilty backbox, had one on my Bora for 7 years and now problems at all. Nice tone and not loud at all. £200 SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET YOU JUST THE BACLBOX.
