I just bought my first car yesterday which is a 2006 316i, I'm looking at doing up the whole car and want to learn more about the exhaust system. I live in Ireland currently and I know the volume limit is 99 dB and to pass emissions test I plan on leaving on my cats. What would ye...
My Cat converter was nicked and they made a right mess of the everything so the whole system needs to be replaced.

I’ve bought a 1 series 116i f20 2012 for my first car. I’ve started doing aesthetic upgrades but now want to play around and get a more throaty sounding exhaust. I like the sound of the m140i and have seen the full exhaust systems on eBay for around £200-300. I was just wondering whether...
Looking for a sports exhaust (part number 18102208805) back box for my 2011 135i E82. Equally, if people have experience with one on a 135i, I'd be interested to hear about your setup and sound you got from it.
My 2008 e93 330i needs a new centre section (from joint at down pipe to back box) exhaust. That’s the part that has 2 cats and the BMW genuine parts come in at about £3,000! My guy can’t find a pattern replacement from his normal sources so can anyone recommend a supplier or custom exhaust...

I purchased a really nice low mileage BMW Z4 a few months back and the only modification the previous owner had done on the car was to replace the back box witha straight through which sounds great, but it's not for me. It sounds amazing but I live on a quiet residential street and...

I have taken my car to the local garage to establish the coolant leak was from the expansion tank which I understand cracks easily however when I asked them about the exhaust hanger issues they tell me that the entire exhaust system needs replacing. They quoted 650 is this high?
Can anyone help with the following.
It appears that all the off the shelf dual/quad exhaust upgrades for the F32 435D model are not compatible with the newer euro 6 models with the adblue tank (as it gets in the way)
Has anybody worked around this? or know someone has managed to...

2007 E91 330i
As the thread says, after standing for two weeks while on holiday, I started the car and it sounded for all the world as if there was a hole in the exhaust.
After a short while there was a strong smell of burning rubber too.
The noise faded after a bit, but the smell remains.
