Another BMW performance exhaust + intake happy owner

Just received my BMW performance exhaust and intake today. I ordered it Friday morning and got it Monday afternoon. to Jason/Evan @ Tischer.

Too bad I won't see it until Friday night.

I'll post more pics (uninstalled and installed) and possibly videos/audios in the next week or so.

11-Jan Update

Exhaust sound on engine start, pull out and low-speed drive by

Watch in HD

23-Dec Update #1

Intake DIY
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=195658
Please note of the new link/thread. I couldn't edit the existing incomplete DIY so I created a new one.

22-Dec Update #2

Spirited driving / cabin sound video
This is how it sounds like from the inside. Unfortunately though the video did not quite pick up the true sound level as I used a 10-year old video cam. The real sound is definitely louder.

Sorry, I had to blur it. I wasn't speeding but this is to make sure I don't get in trouble.

Watch in high quality


[u2b]<object width="480" height="295"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/rabi14j1z2k&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/rabi14j1z2k&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="295"></embed></object>[/u2b]

22-Dec Update #1

Short Review

Exhaust break in period (IMO)
At least 2 hrs of driving. The sound gets better after roughly 2 hours of driving. Then it gets better the following day.

Performance gain!
On paper, there should be around 5-9hp at 5K gain for the intake and exhaust combined. (Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong here). I can't quantify the real world gain but I think that my car has become much quicker and more responsive (I drive in DS or manual mode). Add the beautiful and racy exhaust note to the mix and you'll feel like you're driving an even more faster car. Best mod ever for me and a must-mod for compatible NA bimmers.

BMW Performance Exhaust (for 328) vs stock 335 exhaust
No doubt the performance exhaust note is nicer and louder (in a good way) than the stock 335 exhaust

Fuel consumption
Driving style for this review
Conservative highway driving mixed with a couple of mildly spirited ramp entries

Variables
Avg MPG: 28.3
Top MPG: 30.5
Avg RPM: 2.5K (2.3K to 2.7rpm range)
Avg Highway Speed: 70-75mph (5-10 over speed limit)
Local drive: 10 miles
Highway drive: 55 miles
Total miles: 65 miles
Route: South central NJ to NYC
Note: I reset the MPG meter before I started driving
Exhaust note from the cabin/inside
It's definitely much more apparent from the cabin/inside. It will keep you smiling like a fool. And the moment you accelerate, the exhaust note lets out a nice growl from any rpm.

Drone
No droning at all.

Enhaust note on start up
It's a beauty. Check out the video below.


21-Dec Update #2

Exhaust Video

0 to 5K rpm revs

YouTube High Quality video link

Haha. Not yet, I wish I could! I'd be probably done installing the intake by now and making some good neighborhood runs if I only could.

The parts are at my house in NJ which is a good 1.5 hrs (or 2 hrs with traffic) away from my NYC apartment, where I live during the week.

So the wait is killing me! I'd ask my relative to unpack them and send me some pics so I could at least see them.

i bet lol I would've been in a similar situation but I got it delivered to my workplace in NYC only because I knew that heading home to PA to get it after a day of work and then getting it installed would have been a pain. Once you install it and turn it on for the 1st time might give you butterflies so beware.

I figured it would be a huge box and won't fit in my car so I had it delivered to my house.

Just butterflies? LOL. I'll make sure I take some drugs to calm me down before I turn it on for the first time. .

LMAO yea huge box. I honestly didn't know what to expect but I took mine out the box and looked like a fool walking around midtown with a two piece exhaust trying to catch a cab to my car. People looked at me like I had ten heads but of course as excited as i was didn't give a damn.
