Looks like it's for an older model BMW, maybe e30. You can get anything to fit if you have cash, but I doubt it will bolt on directly

Pass. I'd buy one you are sure of in terms of fitment and quality. The Stromung and ARK exhaust systems are good too!!

+1 to the E30 idea. The giveaway is the hangers on the muffler, the E36 has two parallel to the exhaust tips, and this one has one parallel to the side of the muffler.

That's an E30 cat.

Oh, and yeah. $400 is fair if it's in good working order. They're like $1100 new :yikes:

thanks for the info guys, I msged the selller and its sold.

would a megnaflow system be good? i was quoted about 700 installed brand new magnaflow system from a muffler shop

I'd save some money and install it yourself, unless you don't have the necessary jack & jack stands.

Moeman10 07-08-2011 02:43 PM

Yeah if you're just buying a catback, grab a remus, eisenmann, UUC, Borla, or Rogue exhaust and install it yourself. You almost don't even need a jack to do it it's so easy.

RedBee 07-08-2011 05:17 PM

what are the prices? i have jacks and such but at the muffler shop he would have to do every thing like the bends an such

The bends? Most aftermarket mufflers will just bolt on. You don't need to modify it or anything.

talking about if i went with the megnaflow

Don't go with Magnaflow.

ZeGerman 07-09-2011 10:02 AM

I don't know if Magnaflow makes an E36 cat-back. If not, you would in fact need to have a muffler shop custom fab the piping. That said, I don't like how E36s with Magnaflows sound on YouTube, and would recommend getting one of the other cat-backs mentioned above which require no custom work and you can install yourself using basic hand tools.

will check them out thanks for the help guys!!

Ed's UUC cat back sounds amazing on his 328

on my e30 I have a long tube header, no cat, and stock muffer (new) and the car has an beautiful loud dtm race car note (not quiet) when at WOT but cruising around town is has a quiet rumble (almost stock sounding) :thumbup:
