Look at things this way...with the money you saved in the other areas you could consider allocating to such items which are costly or hard to source?

however here is the bmw part number for the single exhaust tip panel:

41348121771 - this will only fit (designated for) 318i and 318is

41348103088 - twin exhaust tip panel
Are you sure that the first part number is for single cut out? That's what is listed on realoem for my car but when I punch that number into google it shows a piece with dual cut out. From what I can tell both parts are the same.

In fact the only part that I found with a single cut out is for Euro models 41341961518.

Thanks!

Sadly our lovely Ontario weather is preventing me from doing any work in the garage so I decided to bring some work home.

The wheels on this car were pretty iffy and will need a respray. First order or business was cleaning them up.

Some west oven cleaner and a little elbow grease got them looking pretty good.

why are you looking up euro parts for a NA car out of curiousity?

As for the other issue why are you using google when www.realeom.com is probably the most accurate source. I cross referenced the part number and it did not show they were interchangeable. there are two numbers for a reason.

However, I would double check with a bmw dealership. I wouldn't rely on google myself personally. I always go to the source. However the source has been known to be wrong on occasion..it has happened. Here is the thing.. you can always send it back if the dealer has the right part number but put on the wrong part. That would not be your fault and you could get a refund.
without costing you return shipping.

I am looking Euro parts because that seems to be the only part still available with a single tail pipe cutout.

And I am using realoem to find part numbers. Then Google the part numbers for pictures.

This is the part what's listed for 318is on realoem. Pictures show dual cut out.

https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-...l/41348121771/
https://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-7...uine-bmw-part/

A post on R3Vlimited from someone that bought that part also shows dual cut out.

I couldn't care less if it's Euro or NA part as long as it looks correct.

Why not just go dual pipe and put a better muffler ?

This place is your best bet. I bought some parts from them for my E21 project.
Fitment is a bit hit and miss depending on the part... but for the price you can't really complain.

Time for an update. The weather co-operated today and I was able to get some more work done on the car.

First up and update on the wheels. This was the condition of both front wheels. They had heavy layer of caked on brake dust and road grime.





And here they are all cleaned up and repainted. Tires are trash so I didn't bother masking them off. I am still waiting for replacement center cap stickers since mine were completely worn out.





I also received a replacement rear body panel all the way from Germany so today was a good day to cut out the old and test fit the new.







Lastly I can't remember if I posted the floor patch after cleaning up the welds so here it is. Will need to be sprayed with some red to match the rest of the car but tuned out pretty decent.

I am aware. It is a Euro part number after all.

Almost forgot about these pics. Started working on cab corners. They looked iffy and additional poking proved my suspicion. Rather than trying to Mickey Mouse my way around them I decided to cut them out and rebuild.



So off came the bumper and the fender.




And then I made a hole. It's been cold so I haven't done much more since.

Minor update to keep this thread going.

Patched up the corner. Still need to weld the jackstand plate on.
