Hi all, just to confirm i bought the exhaust from tischer the US version. I actually just got it installed today.

All it it cost about $1400 delivered + 250 Custom duty.

Install cost me $150 dollars at my BMW mechanic.

They had to take the car to an exhaust shop to get my original exhaust pipes slightly flanged as there was a small difference in diameter between the PE exhaust Y pipe and my original exhaust Y Pipe.

I would say this is the reason because my car is 2006 Pre-LCI and has a slightly different exhaust than 2007.

It looks good and sounds good. I have been told the sound will change after a while.

I am happy with it but going to see if I can get the muffler raised slightly for a cleaner look.

PM me or post if you have any specific questions.

Hi Dragon20, Glad to hear it all worked out. This seems like a pretty nice mod. Have you noticed any change in the sound after break in? I want to ask if you got any compliments from people who didn't know about the change. Is it something that people will notice straight away?

I'm also wondering if it might be too loud for some situations. Our cars in Australia have 500cc less capacity than the US spec 328i and ours are not fitted with secondry cats - Maybe a difference, or maybe not?

The BMWPE is DEFINITELY noticeable but is never too loud unless you plant your foot. Stock 325i sounds like a hybrid.

With the 325i not being a powerhouse, its pretty normal to have the foot well planted.

At least you already got a PE!

Seriously.. The stock 325i doesn't sound like a hybrid.
I thought it was pretty decent for a stock car, but obviously Jeef's not easily impresed.

Actually, at MDTC whenever Stu passed in his 325i it was LITERALLY silent. I guess that's from all the other cars blasting past at full noise

I don't think you can rely on the pics from the catalog because they are often just illustrations and detail won't be accurate. Its better to look underneath the rear of your car to check if the pneumatic valve exists.

Mine is also 2.5 litre 160kw. I found a pic of my car's muffler and there's no pneumatic valve. I take pics - otherwise I wouldn't remember..

ooh k, the flip valve is on the inside part of the exhaust, opp of where the tail pipes fit. We need to take the car on the lift to see properly. You got the PE installed for your car?

Thanks..
