    Hi, this is my first post. I just bought a BMW e46 and I wanted some suggestions for modding the vehicle. I was thinking of getting the quad exhaust done on the car but I have no clue where to begin! If anyone knows of body shops that would do a good job for a decent price please let me know. Thanks in advance. Another thing is I'm looking for certain carbon fibre parts so if anyone is looking to get rid of carbon fibre parts from their e46 PM me (I'm looking for a hood, trunk, and a roof). Thank you!

    Have you thought about having those items carbon wrapped would be loads cheaper the exhaust I reckon your talkin in the region of around 650 as you will need a rear bumper too. Hope this helps

    Yea, I was thinking about the wrap but I was reading that the quality isnt great on those and when it peels it leaves a lot of cracks on the paint. And yea I kinda figured it would be expensive to do the quad exhaust but thanks anyways!

    ive wrapped a few bits in carbons fiber vinyl myself,

    looks great, as good as cf,

    can be removed with out damging the paint under it


    i dont think you will be able to fit an m3 exhaust, iirc the m3 dosent have a spare wheel well so the exhust goes through that

    No space for a spare wheel in my boot, they used the space for the exhausts, I go an aircompressor and a bottle of leak seal.

    Can a 320i pull a heavy quad pipe system
