Calling E92 pre LCI 335d owners , Pic Help Req

I've just put a deposit down on a 56 plate 335d .
I had a quick look under the car and was surprised to find that the back exhausts seemed quite a lot larger diameter and the rear silencer was relatively small .. bit like the old style cherry bombs of times gone by... hidden towbar too !!

Please can somebody nip out to their car and just take a picture for me so I can compare .Usually back boxes are big blob like jobs.. hopefully a pic or 2 will tell. Unfortunately I don't have a picture of what i saw as I collect the car in a few days

TIA

Is it different on a pre-LCI? I can do you a pic of a nearly new car if that helps

I am properly intrigued as briers just sent me a pic , and i don't have that set up .. is it possible that someone put a 335i exhaust on it ?? or because it has a hidden towbar?

I expected some big muffler but the pipes on the car i have coming seem to split just behind the diff and go directly to each side via 2 really small mufflers ( size of a 2 liter bottle of pop.. 1 on each pipe). This kinda leaves a big old space where your muffler is.

Big boxes

Mines a 2008 model and has the large back boxes, I've only seen custom build ones that look like this before.

You are missing two back boxes and a pipe joining them!

Should be like this:

It's no louder ... didn't think that was much of a gain to be had from "performance exhausts" on a smoker
