NUB question about dual exhaust

Dont laugh. Okay so i have an e90 330, and i hate the look of the exhuast pipes being off to the side. Could I just buy a second set of exhaust pipes, cut the bottom of the bumper on the right side, and weld them on? I dont care that its fake, it will just look SO much better and be a cheapp alternative to buying a whole "dual" exhaust system. What do you guys think? Pathetic?

Same thing, some people call it nub too. Yep i gotcha, but i mean do you think it would be safe to stay on, and there is some plastic sheeting under there that i assume is for windnoise/slickness when on the highway, so if i took that off in that one spot would it damage the car in any way

why dont you just dual a muffler delete and dual a true dual exhaust so that its functional....the 328 bumper cutouts are too far apart....i did research on this too and decided to go either 335 bumper or Mtech with quads

^ thats a pretty mean thing to say. Im sure what he means is, its understandable that u wanna change the rear but its a BMW and doing something cheap and tacky stands out even more and $100 wont get u much. What i recommend is doing what most other people here do and save up your pennies and when u do have the funds do it the right way. Trust me you'll be happier in the long run.

The right way would be to run a true dual with a mtech bumper and either a dual or quad tip setup.

$100 might get you a muffler delete. Maybe.
