E90 m3 exhaust

Would like a more sporty sound on my 2005 325i, is it advisable to fit an m3 exhaust to it? Seen a 2nd hand one, but pipes on the back of the box have been cut.

Straightforward or effort not worth it?

Has anyone done this mod?

No you just don't have the required space under the car and the sound would not be good IMO. That exhaust is engineered for a V8, not a 230HP I6.

Yeah, I think space will be an issue with the M3 suitcase muffler.
