I have a full Supersprint exhaust (headers, s-pipe, y-pipe, muffler). Supersprint sounds the best IMHO. There are plenty of options among Supersprint, Arqray, Dinan, Remus, Billy Boat, Eisenmann,...

On US cars, all emissions sensors are in the headers for both the M54 (pre-facelift) and S54 (M) cars. I'm not sure about the N52 engine (post-facelift).

The M has a set of secondary cats that...

An engine swap would be cost prohibitive. You would need to swap to the N54 ECU and bring every sensor with it, or use a stand alone ECU and get a tuner to have a go at it.

Hard to tell from the pic... are both the bolts still in place? It's possible for one or both of the bolts to fall off before the bracket itself goes.
