I mean, why pay for yet another resonator when you already have one?
You'll have to pay a muffler shop to cut off old muffler, make a short piece to fit the MF muffler to your exhaust pipe & weld - usual cost is around $50
The also pay same shop to install a 'Y' pipe in order to delete your factory resonator - might be another $50-$60
So now you have a Magnaflow muffler with resonator delete for $250-$300
Much cheaper than the $800+ for that system you looked at, same quality MF muffler + resonator delete
And if you don't want to get rid of your factory resonator - just install the MF muffler and save yourself another $60...
will that magnaflow universal even fit the 328xi? i know my muffler is a lot wider on mine than the picture shows for the universal one. thanks for the help.
