Really this isn't difficult. Look at the video above, then go out and look at the exhaust tips.

Single wall = Performance Exhaust or maybe aftermarket, double check by getting on your back, crawling under the back, and looking at the writing on the muffler.

its a 335 - it DOES have the valve on the driver side pipe.

it is not a single walled unit, i think its the stock unit. Crawled underneath and grabbed a pic, no mention of anything "performance" related on the muffler stampings.

thought i read that the PE is a 3 piece unit?

I'm leaning towards a stock unit.....

If it's not single walled and has a flap it's not the PE. For sedans it's midpipes back, for coupes its the rear section only.
Honestly Msport is pretty much a trim package. Flamesuit on for the overly sensitive!

So many unanswered questions in the post:

Is it a 328 or 335?
Does he have PE or not?

Anyone want to guess on colors too?

You have the stock unit then, not PE.

It is on the sedans. On coupe and convertible it's two piece since they come with the midpipe crossover already in place, which the sedan does not.
