I would have thought this was a cat-back exchange. That there was a flange after the cat, where the stock exhaust unbolts and the performance exhaust goes back on. I am surprised to hear it has to...

Does that mean that if you had wanted, the dealer would have kept the stock muffler and deducted its value from the cost of the performance muffler?

What happens to the stock exhaust that is removed? Is it returned to BMW's parts inventory, with its value deducted from the cost of the performance exhaust? That would be ideal.

Can the performance exhaust be ordered on a new 328i, or must one buy it at extra cost and be stuck with the unwanted stock exhaust?

If you want the rear subframe kit and the rod bearings, Forbes would be the best person to do both, if you can get the car to him. And he can do the other items, as well as rear subframe bushings.

The Coral Red looks a lot brighter than on BMW's Build Your Own website, and it's beautiful. Could the same 4 cylinders sound better because they are coming through the HK sound system?
