: Catback exhaust for X3 3.0?

02-25-2008, 08:43 PM

I am new to BMW's but have tuned many Audis and VW turbo cars. I bought this X3 for the family but I wanted to actually hear the exhaust! :D

What options do I have? I would prefer stainless of course. Links appreciated! TIA

Of all the exhausts I have heard clips of on an X3, I liked Remus the best. Deeper tone, but not too loud.
I recently removed the vacuum hose that goes to the second exhaust tip on the stock exhaust to keep the valve open full time and it gives a good deep tone at idle. Once moving, tone is not much different. All you have to do is remove the rear side panel on the driver's side, and there is a vacuum valve there. Remove the hose coming off the side and cap the valve.
