Exhaust clarification needed

Well i have a 320 exhaust on my car, and i bought i custom exhaust from a member here that drives a 328, well when i went to two shops they both said that the exhaust would not work due do the different bend on the pipes, a 328 custom exhaust has the pipe bend down after the muffler while the 320 doesnt!! my question is whether i can use that exhaust or a need the pipes to match exactly?? HELP ME PLEASE

thanks for reading

it should fit, since they are both from e36's....the exaust mani's are virtually the same so it should all bolt-up

I don't completely understand. Can you draw a picture? I don't see why it wouldn't bolt up. I6 exhausts are almost identical.

320/323 is 6cyl, but is only single pipe, a 325/328/M3 is dual pipe all the way back.
