My first question is what did you do with the old one? I prefer the original personally.

I think it looks great, might`ve been better if they staggered the tips `tho, so that the "inner" one protruded more like the OEM ones.

Looks good, but the outer part sticks out more..

on the 3L model the twin pipes are the other way around, i.e. the outer pipe is further in and the inner one is further in to match the curvature of the bumper.

Nice, I prefer it than the standard setup.

Shame the twin pipes are not standard like the ones on the 3.0 litre engines.

I vote for that one.

The original would be OK if it were big enough to fit the cut out but it's not so that gets my vote.

Nice ! But personally I would chosen this one from Hartge:



This one looks more like the OEM version which is standard on the 325 and upwards to the 335..

^^^^^They are nice, but you need twin pipes to start with, then slide them over the originals I suppose. I was going to buy a Hartge rear box, but it was 375 plus fitting and VAT

Mine cost me 110

Where did you get them Creepy? I'm interested but would need a de-badge to go along with it.

No, just the pipes and no difference to the sound at all.

Thanks for your comments everyone
