The pipe that goes down from the cyl head to the exhaust pipe running aft.

Sound? Wikipedia "muffler"

Add'l info for 335i - click Post #2 links.

Beware. Changing back pressure on an engineered-to-the-edge ride like yer 335i is fraught with performance issues. You're safe with BMW performance exhaust, which comes with a factory software adj and $1100+ wallet lightener.

Much tech info at N54TECH and E90POST.
