    hello, im looking to put a twin exhaust on by powerflow in about a month or so. i have two questions:

    1: they will need to cut the diffuser, how is this done? Where is it cut from? Dont want it to look like a shoddy cut job

    2: i have read up about powerflow exhaust on this site, members have said that they are good but depends on the fitter. Any recommended places?

    thanks as always

    im assuming that your iS came with the m-tec kit from the factory so it would have the single exhaust cut out?
    if that is the case then you can cut the diffuser or you can get another m-tec diffuser from the like of a 328 sport or an m3 and fit that instead

    spot on disco, i had a closer look at the diffuser and it has a very faint line as if to show ''this is where you ment to cut if you want to put a twin exhaust on''.....is that correct.

    would it be better to get it cut or purchase a 328 diffuser?

    I would purchase a twin exit diffuser and sell your single exit one or even keep hold of it incase you would like to swap back at any point in time
