Installing a BMW performance exhaust on an e90



Hoping to get some advice from those who have done it or those who know - is this a pretty straight forward install? I'm assuming it's a bolt on more or less and could be done by any chain service shop? Are there any sensors that would be affected and need to be re-coded?

Thanks for any help. Looking to get this installed in the next day or so.

Nothing fancy, just a straight bolt-off and bolt-on.

On what car?

I'm pretty sure you have to cut the middle section out on the 328/330 PE.

^^ Car is a 328xi. Cutting the mid-pipe? I thought it was a straight bolt on from the catback...

Secondary cats are integral in the factory exhaust. The performance exhaust system, from what I've seen, requires cutting off after the secondary cats...




And connects together with exhaust clamps

Yeah, you need to cut the original exhaust. Here are the installation instructions
