Performance Exhaust

HI, I,m New. My first question/comment is can you get any Exhaust Modifications for the 20d Diesel. Even if it,s only a simple chrome replacement of the back pipe. It,s oval shape makes it hard to put something over it. Might have to cut that little bit off first.

I doubt you can get any mods other than superficial. I tired for 5 years to find any decent mods for the X3 and finally gave up.

Talked to Steve Dinan directly and he said that there just wasn't any ROI for all the R & D needed.

Part of the reason I didnt get the new X3. The N55 engine is in several BMW and their are mods for all but the X3.

So cant see any appreciable things for the X1..sorry

Evlengr, Thanks, I totally understand. Will look at chrome exhaust tip, set of wheels & tyres and a compatable chip upgrade. Chip cost around $1200.00, they have to programe your exesting chip which improves KW from 130 to around 160 and NM from 350 to 430. Takes about 2 hours in their workshop.
