    I was directing you to Marks 335 because IMHO the twin 4" tailpipes look better than an M3 setup, the quality of the fabrication on the MV Sport exhausts on Marks car is great and it is even possible to rotate them to alter to look of the tailpipes .
    Also worth noting they manufacture on site so will give you any look you want.

    May be worth having a look at their website as there are more pictures of my car on it should you wish.

    just because I like the style of the quads, I think they look very agressive and because they are more central, changes the whole look of the rear of the car.

    I understand what your saying and Im not into trying to make my car look like something its not, but the standard exhaust lets down the back of the car and must go, and if its getting changed may as well be for something i really like.

    I usually go for subtle mods, and may well end up with a similar set up to marks but if the quads are possible then that is an option i'll also be looking at.

    cheers for your input

    fair do's mate, it wasn't a dig. I reckon you'd be better off with a custom one rather than a M3 backbox modified to fit. because it has 2 entries and you have only one you cant just block off one of them as it wouldnt flow properly.

    Thanks again for your reply, I will definately keep this in mind

    Still wondering if anybody knows if I did manage to pull it off and fit a standard m3 exhaust onto my system, should i expect this to have any impact on the my engines performance, giving that it would be a m3 petrol rear box on a 320d engine.

    No worries pal, my intention would be to split the middle section into both entries

    it doesnt run like that as far as i know, they run the full length of the silencer rather than half of it. i think anyway.

    sorry, what i mean is that the inlet from the left runs the length of the silencer internally and exits on the right, and vice versa for the otherside. So if you sealed one side off you're gonna have a load of extra metal and weight at the back of your car thats only for show.

    we cant answer that tbh.
    you would need a degree in fluid dynamics to work out the pulse length applicable to your engine if you want to retain your torque curve
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.
