BMW performance Exhaust DIY with pics???

with all the folks out there with a PE Im amazed that i cant find a DIY with pictures. Im sure its not that complicated to install its just reassuring to see some pics of the process. Can any one point me in a direction, tips would be nice too. Mine will be here in the mail today and is going on tomorrow!!

In all my years on here ive never seen any directions, from what I understand its pretty much cut and clamp. IDK if directions come in the box or not.

Not quite a DIY guide, but some good pics. Bear in mind this a US spec car. Some PEs for the 3-series are back box only (or 'muffler' as you boys across the pond call it I believe!).

I was quoted $60 to install it from my local shop, thats less then the Jack stand adapters i would have to rig just to get it off the ground. I like to work do most all work on my car, but a lift is pretty key for this job, plus $60 is very fair. While they are under there I will have them install my BMS Clutch delay valve and bleed the clutch for me. Why not.?.

First of all, congrats on the PE Exhaust purchase! You'll definitely love it! From what I know like others have said, I believe it should be simple since its an OEM piece, it's cut and clamp. It's straight forward you should be fine.
