exhaust look change

i currently have a 320d m sport, dont really like the look of the orignal exhaust..
looking to change it to look something like the twin 330d m sport..

i dont know much about this side of cars but what will i have to ask for? and roughly how much should i be looking to pay?

thanks in advance

Loads of options, and a very straight forward mod! Did it on my own car...pics here: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=517765 .

That's just a powerflow 76mm *I think* twin tailpipe. Cut of the droopy bit and weld that on! Easy peasy! Do a search and you'll see plenty more! Some nce ones that have a staggered fit to accompany the curvature of the bumper/car, which is a bit more OEM lookin IMO, bt they're harder to find?

I did a back box change to an MV Sports Tuning SS one, easy to change yourself.

Got mine done at powerflow exhausts at Newcastle/Gateshead,only took them about 40 mins too,got a good choice of tailpipes,i went for the slash cut design....looks great,much better than the old letter box style,deffo recommend getting it done as a cheap alternative obviously just for cosmetic reasons.

Easy as that! No problem! Just cut and weld on the new piece!

I don't often say this but.......


This is like groundhog day. This has been talked about several times in here and even within the last couple of weeks there has been several threads with everyone posting pics showing what they'd done, where they got it done and how much it cost.

General consensus is get it cut off at a custom exhaust place and get a new one welded on. Costs about 100 maximum.
