Just spent a couple of hours working my way down to the last two bolts. This install is fairly straight forward on a car with 5000 miles but on my 335i with over 70,000 it a serious pain in the a$$. I snapped two bolts (exhaust hanger and one of the four mounting the downs to the rest of the exhaust). Also, while I can get a 1/4 inch drive wrench on one of the hanger and the last mounting bolt, there's NO WAY that I can get enough torque on the thing to get them loose (or snap them as the trend seems). I'm now going to button everything back up and take the whole mess to someone with the requisite time, tools, and knowlege to finish the job!
