My New BMW Performance Exhaust

Well, it didn't take long for me to check off another item on my wish list for my BMW. As mentioned in my last update, I always wished that I went with a more OEM BMW approach with my car. After about 10 months of running a Rogue Ikon exhaust, I decided it was time for an upgrade.

The BMW Performance line of accessories consists of first class pieces to make anyone's BMW more aggressive and unique. I was so thrilled with the quality and look of my BMW Performance Air Intake that it took me less than a month to add its complementary piece, the BMW Performance Exhaust. This exhaust is a full catback exhaust system that removes the secondary cats and incorporates a free flowing muffler. The result is an incredible sound coming from an otherwise unassuming inline six cylinder engine. In addition to the mean growl it adds, the BMW Performance Exhaust also improves throttle response, making my 328 feel quicker off the line and in passing situations. My only regret is not buying this system sooner.

Because you have an xi, you don't have stock sport shocks even if you got the sport package. The stock shocks on our xi's can't handle the stiffer HR spring rate. I had only HR Sport Springs and hated it. Get the shocks, you won't be disappointed.

Nice upgrade.

Off topic: I thought you were prepping for a change (F30) and holding back anymore mods? Didn't you mention that in a previous thread?

The F30 is still in the cards, although due to some extenuating circumstances, will likely be in early 2013 now. Had to get something to tide me over

I hear that

On another topic, how are you finding the H&Rs on our roads? Any issue with bottoming out or scraping around town? Cambridge has been a nightmare for me in the past, so I've been hesitant to pull the trigger on a drop. I know you have an E90, so it isn't apples to apples, but getting some feedback on a spring lowered E9x would be helpful. I'm leaning Eibach/Bilstein as that offers a slightly milder drop and this is my DD.

Thanks - Jason

Wanna sell me the rogue? I need SOME exhaust on this. My last car was highly modified and LOUD. I need some kind of sound bad

If you do then PM me . Congrats on the sweet exhaust though, but out of my price range for sure.

No problems at all. I think the H&R Sports with Bilstein are a great set up and don't find them too harsh at all. Eibach's will be less aggressive than H&R and should give a great moderate drop.

Absolutely, I'll let it go for cheap since you live in my hometown lol. I'll send you a PM.

Do want. Trying to resist the urge to mod...

Thanks man! The combo definitely woke up the engine too, throttle response is definitely improved. I could tell you it's a good amount of coin and it's not worth it, but, I would be lying

Exhaust is on and sounds AWESOME with the resonator delete. Might have a slight rattle but thats nothing that can't be fixed with some adjustment. Might go away on its own. REALLY nice exhaust for the 325.

Just so you know Adam, I've watched the video 6+ times since Saturday. I can almost justify the awesomeness with a new car now nine months away. Give me a few more days of watching and I'll cave...
