You're welcome!
I order from a Hong Kong local auto parts shop (parallel import).
The price is much more friendly than HKBMW (the dealer).

wow was hoping to hear that for the sound atleast
This side of the world paid big bucks for it cause of our high import duty I wonder why there is a power loss, isn't it suppose to make the car more smoother & faster?

Ha! In fact our stock E9X LCI muffler is pretty good at low and mid range performance, since there's a flap valve in the muffler while PE doesn't have.
But sound wise, PE is superb! Try do some other modifications to go with your PE, such as BMS PBX / AA Tune, a high flow filter / air intake system, Okada plasma direct coil pack, etc. I believe the outcome will be nice for our N52 engine!

P.S. The staff from the parts shop told me that our Euro spec. E9X LCI 323i 325i comes with a sport muffler (with flap valve) as stock, which was equipped with M-SPORT E9X 323i 325i in Pre-LCI period.

if our cars come with sports muffler stock then why does it sound like a pussy?
there is no stock sound at all.
Is no 20 in diag the flap valve you talking about? this is my exhaust diag i got from real oem.

There is no way we can fit the flip valve from the stock exhaust to the performance one?

hi,
I read about it in another forum that you can take your car to the dealer & ask him to reset your ecu adaption settings, see if that makes a difference to your performance
