WTB: exhaust, wheels, etc.

Greetings,

New to the forum. Fiance just picked up a 335i, e92 (not xi). She's looking for the following:

- exhaust
- wheels
- black interior trim - has AL

Coils go on next week, and she's got some money to burn, so if you have anything, or have been looking to upgrade, let me know what you have.

Regarding exhaust: Doesn't have to be special, but does need to sound good and no drone

Wheels: No replicas. Preferably something with dish.

Thanks! nice forum you guys have here.

thanks man. I will PM you as soon as the system allows me. Looks like that takes a few days to earn those rights.

So far yes. We've tried to do a monthly meet. So far so good. As far as exhaust recommendations, I may be biased but I'd go with the Performance Exhaust. No drone, and it's OEM!

been reading up, and that exhaust seems highly desirable. I'd be all for it if there were any available locally. These don't seem to come up used too often though?

Far from it! Once you go this route, you never go back. Maybe if you're returning a lease or something. Just order it from getbmwparts.com! Thats where I got mine.

I can't believe nobody informed you of the required pic of your beauty. Both in your case.

Welcome aboard.

Thanks man!

I'll let her share pics of the car. I'm not even sure if she has pics yet, but she'll be in here before long. I'm definitely the bigger forum whore in the family, but she's logged some hours in these pits...

Doubt you guys will get pics of her...she won't post them and if I do...welllll, not a great idea.



edit: I have pics of her E30 somewhere. I'll throw those up if I can find 'em

I haven't heard much for exhausts in person, so can't offer comparisons, but I really like my Autobahn Exotics Catless exhaust. It's fairly quiet and noninvasive when you're cruising and not driving the car hard, but gets loud and throaty once you get aggressive with the gas. I love it even more after putting AR downpipes on the car recently. It's a little pricey (I think $1800 MSRP), but you can occasionally find good used deals on the forums. I picked mine up off a local forum member for $1k about a year and a half ago.

Thanks man. I'll keep my eye out for that too.

The BMW Perf. unit sure has a lot of fans...we'll see what she ends up with.

Just picked the car up from the dealer after getting tint, detailed, and front plate removed. I've always liked these cars on the road, but never paid terribly close attention to them. They're really beautiful. glad she got one.

Whats funny is I never really noticed or cared for the e9x until I got one myself. I was always, e46 or nothing until two years ago.

so exhaust, I am thinking the same route, but I noticed there is the bmw performance exhaust for about 1k or the m exhaust for 3k. Worth the - 20lbs difference?

Anyone have lift to install or is this a go to the dealer type thing?

I've had several friends with E46 M3s so I've always had a thing for them (especially if supercharged.)

The E9X cars have been somewhat under the radar, but their original price probably had a lot to do with that. Now that the used values are coming down (good for us, bad for early buyers) they're getting a lot of looks by people who maybe have never owned a BMW before. If I was in the market for a new used car, these would be way high on the list.
