328xi muffler options

I am looking to swap out the oem muffler in my 2010 328xi. I don't really care about hp, I just want a more aggressive tone. I brought it to a local shop today, and he said I would need to look for a cat back system. I am not having any luck finding one. I saw one for Borla (p/n 140505), but it appears it's not available yet.

Has anyone here just swapped the oem with a universal muffler with relative ease? The mechanic I saw said there is little room to work with, with say a magnaflow 14816. The turns with the piping would be almost 90 degrees.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks for the response, do you have any suggestions on where to buy? Its more than I wanted to spend, but it sounds great on youtube. Would you trust a local muffler shop to install, like midas?

Bmw only charges like $90 for the installation of the PE. Midas has a pretty high hourly rate plus you wont get a warrenty with the install if you take it elsewhere. I would just do it at a dealership
