Wanna unload my 325i LCI stock muffler

Where I can sell it fast?

It is sitting in my trunk, no place to store it as I live in tiny unit.

28car.com has no feedback so far.

Please help

Thanks

Hi Herman, guess no one will be interested in our stock muffler. Keep it posting on car8, 28car.
BTW, I'm curious to know... did you change the BMW Performance muffler only? Did the staff from Valiant recommend you to have the mid pipe changed as well?

Nope
Or maybe I didn't give them a chance in explaining.
I wouldn't change the mid-pipe anyway, can't afford the extra.
And performance is really not an issue for a 325 and a slow driver.

I do feel that my car is slower comparing to before.
But it sounds good and I am happy.

You've got the muffler too?
Or still deciding?

I'm going to make an order! $6.4k for a muffler upgrade is a pretty decent deal
Herman, noted that u've the muffler installed in Motive Auto. How much did it cost? Workmanship OK? One more Q, is the PE direct bolt on or need a welding job? Thanks!

BMW PE from valiant?
i remember i ordered it 4 months ago at 6060.

yes i did it at motive auto (pm-ing the labour cost)
i don't think they did any welding, they use a connection piece.
it is a very clean shop, fast working, i think they did it no more than 10 cigarettes.

i would take my car to him for services again if he was in somewhere closer to where i live.

I've got an E90 323i LCI and the PE exhaust fits perfectly on mine. Don't see any reason why it shouldn't work on yours...

Hi,
You got the 2.5ltr engine right? for fitting the exhaust in your car you had to cut any pipes?

Thanks..

This is the one I've ordered.
For installation PE back box, it needs a cut and welting job, since our stock mid pipe and back box are linking together.
