Custom exhaust

Why are custom exhausts cheaper and if I want to get a custom magnaflow exhaust for my 2007 BMW z4 3.0si coupe how much would that cost

2006 Z4 M Coupe  [4.75]
cheaper because of the name and perhaps the quality, unsure of pricing every shop is different, are you talking just muffler?

Mostly due to name brand, ease of "bolt on", fitment, etc.

Magnaflow is just as good (hell most companies use their mufflers for their kits). I plan on going with a custom magnaflow setup soon. I had one on my 325i and my buddy did a setup on his 330i.

Or you could just do what I did to my M3 and go straight pipes and scare the shit out of everyone! lol

yeah its brand name, plus you're paying for research and development

with a custom exhaust, you're paying for the research and development
