Connectors/extension cable for exhaust flap solenoid?

Hey everyone, I'm looking to either build or purchase an extension cable for the exhaust flap solenoid that is unplugged for the golf tee mod. I was hoping someone more knowledgeable about part numbers could possibly locate the connectors so I could build a male to female extension cable. I'd like to have a switch control the exhaust flap, but I don't want to touch the original wiring.

Thanks!

Bumping - hoping someone more skilled with RealOEM or someone who works as a BMW tech can field this one. Thanks!

I wanted to do something similar in the past, but I couldn't find too much info on the connectors needed and didn't feel like trying to source something myself. Picked this up instead:

Interesting, thanks for pointing this out. I'll keep it in mind as a backup option.

Did the Exhaustmeister meet your expectations? I'm getting a little highway drone after I modified my exhaust to match the PE. So I'm wondering if forcing the flap close at highway speeds would kill the drone.

Yup. Works very well. The only thing that I don't like about it is that when you turn the car off/back on again, the system defaults to have the exhaust "open." I'd prefer it the other way around to avoid the initial button click upon startup. I still use the key fob and haven't programmed my mirror/garage door opener button to handle that job yet though.

But yes, having the flap closed at highway speeds eliminates all drone; just like stock. If I really wanted to, I'd probably modify the driver side muffler only so that it's loud with the flap open, but with the flap closed it would sound just like stock. Best of both worlds I guess.
