Recommendations for new exhaust - 320i auto - Based in UK

Hey guys

Iím exploring the idea of changing the standard, one oval exhaust on my 320i Ė the reason for changing is purely for sound.

Before any of you 335 owners come along and have a go about why Iím making my car look like yours Ė Iím not . Iím not going down the one exhaust on each side.. all I want is a double exhaust (just the back box and tips, not the whole system) to replace the fairly quiet oval one.

I know that I canít get a huge amount of sound with the 320i, however after going through some posts on here, I came across the BMW performance exhaust for the 320i and it sounds great! Yes, I have an auto Ė but I have the steptronic and sports mode so can be in control of the sound!

*The sound Iím wanting*: that screaming sound that the BMW performance one gives! Only thing Ė the cost. Due to other financial commitments and the Mrs, I cant justify spending that much on it.

I donít want anything chavvy or hugely loud like the old max power cars.. just the sound that the BMW performance gives (yes I know I keep mentioning that one Ė if only I could afford it!).

The threads that Iíve seen mention Schmiedmann, Remus, BMW Performance and a few others independent companies who make their own systems.

Unfortunately, the Schmiedmann is a bit out of my budget, the Remus ones sounds a bit too chavvy for me from what Iíve seen on youtube clips (please correct me if Iím wrong and apologies if I am).

I went through a members post on here (Thanks Ish!) and his set up sounds great. Complete new back box with tips and he also has a 320 and from what I can see on his video clip, it sounds really nice. Best part is that he got it done for just under £200! (from MIJ Exhausts in Birmingham) Thatís within my budget J

This is his:



Only thing is, thatís about 3 hours away from me and although I wouldnít mind travelling that far, I wanted to see if anyone could recommend a place in or around the Herts area, as thatís where Iím mainly based.

Given what Iím looking for (sound: scream / price: within £200 / Look: OEM looking double tips) Iíd really appreciate if I could have your thoughts and recommendations of what I could go for and any places nearer than Birmingham.

Many thanks!
