Z4M Custom Exhaust

I forgot how old i'm getting and got magnaflows installed on my Z4M Coupe 2 days ago. I'm willing to part with it for $600 if someone is interested (plus cost of removal at a shop). It has flanges on them so you can swap out with your stock by just unbolting it. The tips are 3mms larger than the stock but has the same setup where the inside pipes are out slightly more than the outer ones. I'll post pics up later today. The cans are painted black and tips are shiney stainless steel. We can swap out tomorrow if you can find a muffler shop that's open. I'm in West LA.


Cheers,
Mike

hahaha. Well, I'd think about it, but I've got my eye on a custom exhaust.

If I were to compare, I'd say it sounds exactly like a Gruppe M exhaust on an M3. sounds something like this:

This is the one I'm looking at, if not something similar anyway. http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...g+tale&page=11

I'm in SoCal as well, can I get an undershot of the setup? Is it axle back//1st resonator back? I think this would fit on my 3.0Si as well but an underbody shot would help me decide for sure. Definitely interested. Thanks, I could probably hook it up with a y-pipe or a 2nd resonator x-pipe.

I'll try to take a shot of the underside tomorrow but i doubt it will fit your car unless you cut the flanges off. I specifically had them custom weld a flange on so that you can the cans are now bolted on rather then welded on. Meaning you can swap back to your stocks by unbolting 2 nutts.

Well I was thinking if I use a y-pipe I can use one of the two mufflers and then it would bolt up to my stock muffler location? I think I could figure out a custom way to mount it, if a picture isn't too much trouble that'd be great. Thanks

-Actually, they are not the "exact same". There are two different Magnaflow cans with the same external size, but different internal baffling. So mine may be different from yours. You'd have to look inside to check. Also, while both use the same tips, the BMS ones are spaced a little further apart and have a little more stagger. Imho, they fill out the bumper cutouts better.



But free is free

-I would have been here sooner, but I didn't know this board existed until yesterday.

When last I spoke with Chris he told me to tell people it would be around $1500 for the cans (Stage 1), and about $750 each for the x-pipe (Stage 2) and cat-delete section (Stage 3). Except that I don't believe the Stage 3 will be offered until they/we are able to figure out how to keep the top end.

-It probably sounds very, very similar, at least on a computer. Most of the sound comes from the cans. At WOT the x-pipe changes the sound though.
