Same here, 2 weeks + remap = new car again. So worthwhile.

In fact, remap, CDV delete and clutch stop. This car is actually alot of fun to hoon around town now, and I've had an M3 and remapped 535d.

The exhaust is a must, I pretty much bought mine based on the rear exhaust having been converted to 335 dual exit

I'm afraid I can't help on that as it was done by a previous, previous owner. But any decent exhaust place can do a dual exit I suppose, you just need to get the rear diffuser from a 335i/d m sport and take it with you to the exhaust place - they can then custom fabricate something to fit.

I am not sure if mine is an OEM 335 back or custom - my tail pipes are chunkier than the OEM 335d so I'm unsure

A lot of guys just change the standard exhaust to a twin pipe like the 330 models, very cheap to do and looks good.

Hey lovely ride !

If you wanna tint the windows, dont tint just the rears - looks not so good. Tint 35% all round. If you are thinking about remap - hmmmm its better to but tuning box - any time you can take it off the engine when going for MOT or selling the car and just sell the tuning box and get your money back. Once remap is done 300 will stay with the car and there might be problems on the MOT or when selling the car...

The perfect exhaust for 320d is from BCS - guys in St Helens - 200 fitted and looks awesome - have had it for a year now !

Makes my engine bay look shabby... After I cleaned it!

Have you polished your tailpipe up? Hate my stock 320d, thinking of taking some steel wool to it in an attempt to shine it up!

Have you got a pic of your exhaust please mate?

I don't want to get grief from the police so will just tint the rears, Want a factory look. Will be getting a remap as the tunning boxes worry me and i can't see how the MOT is a problem

BMW do a performance twin exhaust for the e8x, but it does require cutting the tip off and might fit your exhaust.

I will try and find the part number soon

or this

I have some pics on my profile here
Why would tuning box worry you ? Remap would worry me lol. Tuning box is the best choice - you can take it off the car in 5-10 mins and no problems at all with MOT or sale of the car. The remap will be there forever...

You do know that a remap has no bearing on passing an MOT don't you? It's not like you fail an MOT for having a remap.

A good remap (and there are lots of good ones) is better than any tuning box - most tuning boxes only increase fuel pressure - its not the best way to make more power. The reasons why a remap is better has been done to death, suffice to say the only reason to get a tuning box is if you have warranty and you don't want BMW knowing you have tinkered with the car or for whatever reason, you don't want a permanent change. Even tuning box manufacturers will tell you that a remap is the better option in terms of power/drive-ability.
