Quad set up on 325i

I don't want to really spend grands on exhaust, just some cheap pipe work and a new muffler. How would you guys go about at this? I have a m-tech rear so I can just cut the diffuse.

Also don't the 325i and 328i have smaller pipe room on the passenger side? Would I need shorter single tips?

Well I have m-tech, but i'm trying to do the wider quad setup which is difficult. I found a shop willing to do it. The reason is the 3d design quad diffuser reps have wide quad setup. if you want 335i setup, it's your best bet to go m-tech before so you can change diffuser to what you want unless you want to get a 335i bumper.

I bought mine from jgmods since they painted it before shipping. I bought mine for around 900 with shipping included I believe, and that was freight shipped so it doesn't damage my bumper.

you can always get a scratched up 335i bumper and get it repainted. Just make sure all the tabs are there. those bumpers usually run about 100 dollars to 250 depending on condition, just get ones that are scratched up so the shop only has to sand it down and paint it. I would keep the original bumper though if you want to sell the car later.

You can, if you want to run the setup I am doing. Just go to the right muffler guy and a good shop that does lot of mods so they cut your bumper correctly in parallel form. if you want to use your current bumper, that means you either go dual oval or quad setup.

And I'll take a picture why 335i setup is easier, there's little bit more rooms for it. M3 rep setup is even easier, crap load of room.
