M3 exhaust on 325i

Will a M3 coupe exhaust muffler bolt on to a 325i sedan? do i need the cat back system do I need to get anything welded etc.? what's the deal to make this work?

+1 does it give you any more horse power or sound difference?

As far as I know, it bolts up.

You won't get any performance gain though.

Thanks buddy!

I thought that it bolts up. As far as performance I know it doesn't free up any horses but it does make the car sound good (apparently)

And was it bolted on or did you have to weld the muffler to your existing piping?

Yes, it bolts up. No mods are necessary since the floor is the same on coupes and sedans and the midsection is the same on 325 and m3.
Without the m3 bumper it might look a bit weird since the tips are longer.

I got a 328i one sitting in my garage. lol

Only thing I can suggest is check with the parts guys on the site and see what they have gotten. Finding exhausts for e36's (as in aftermarket or upgrade from stock) is pretty hard. When I was looking to upgrade my 328 it took me a few years for the right one to pop up. Although I would assume M3 ones have more of a chance to pop up compared to remus or stromung aftermarket ones.

as stated above, it bolts right up. Even the hangers are there, but for the M3 exhaust to work, you just move it over to accept the wider exhaust.

I've seen some on here for sale.. that's where I bought mine.

Yes the tips do hang out a bit, but the M3 diffuser would solve that!
