Cool E90 320d tail pipe on Sport and SE?

Hi
are the tail pipes or the exhaust different on an 320d m sport model to an 320d SE model?
as i seen a sport one today and it had a smart looking chrome oval shape pipe whereas all the standard models have an ugly down facinf pipe??

thanks for the info.

would u have to refit the whole exhaust or u can u get an oval exhaust trim?

thanks

No worries I was going to get the full back box but seen as the exhausts in perfect nick it seemed a waste.

LOL, her brother had one on his Volvo (dont ask) and it was like an old dustbin.

I will pop down and see George at RMS and see what he has to offer.

I've had no problems I checked their workmanship while it was on the ramp!

I would personally go to your local garage because its hard to tell if the tip would look right without seeing it in person.
