Went to my exhaust shop and just tell him the part number.. He said i will have them in 3 days.. So im getting all the pieces together..

Looks like the Magnaflow inlet pipe is 2.25 inches. Is your guy gonna try a try and expand it?
I'm not sure if that diameter is gonna cause any pressure build up. Look into it.

Here are the pics of my tailpipe setup ... I have a mysterious CPS issue, but other than that it's running sweet!

I had a CEL (P0340) that made me want to put a new one in. I did that and now it runs worse. I did try the original sensor again, and that didn't help either. On a '98 540i there only seems to be one in all the diagrams and manuals, am I missing something?

The sound is a lot better with this setup - its quieter than just shopping the pipes off, but not much, and it sounds a lot smoother and more refined.

Happy to hear you enjoy the sound of new setup... I'm no to sure re: P0340, never had experience with that so i cant help or give you a suggestion... Hope other members will help with this issue.
Keep us posted when you resolve the problem ... this will be a learning experience for all of us..

My exhaust shop called me today my muffler tips are in.. I ask them regarding 2.25 intel on the tip. They said they will expand as close as possible to 2.75.
