E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by a naturaly aspirated inline 6 in the 128 or the turbo twin power inline 6 rocket sled 135.

Searching for Used/Salvaged 2011 135i Exhaust System

I recently bought a 2011 135i convertible for my wife but find the BMW performance exhaust to be too loud. She hates it, says it sounds like a juiced up Honda Civic. Unfortunately the guy who had the system installed in Mar Ď17 didnít ask for the OEM exhaust back. As a result, I am searching for a used OEM system to reinstall on this vehicle. Failing that, any suggestions on reducing the volume of the current BMW performance exhaust system?

I'll be down this weekend to swap.

Got space to work and tools?

Or come to Richmond and I will swap here....and I'll buy your gas.

Jim it was great meeting you today and your car sounds very quiet and sophisticated now.

Mine got a little more raucous and uncivilized.....but I am loving it.

Thanks!


Ric

135i Exhaust Swap

A pleasure meeting you and your family, Ric. Bringing civility to my exhaust will bring tranquility to my marriage.

Thank you!

Jim

This is beyond awsome! You two met up and swapped exhausts! This is what cars are all about! Meeting people and making friends!

Restoring a lightly used 2002 BMW 525iA back to it's stock beauty one part at a time, with a modern touch!

Yes! Jim drove a long ways to my dads place since it has a lift. I bought his gas and mom feed him some lunch!

Jim bought an absolute peach of a car. Super clean. Bright Red. Gorgeous. His first One'r and he did well!!

It is as clean underneath as it was up top....I know as I was under it. I did all the slicing and dicing and wrenching.

We got it sounding stock and using the flapper valve so it no longer snorts and rips, but purrs and snarls....

But I did show him how to do the golf tee mod....just in case....


And I always wanted a PE on my 135. I had one on my 128 and loved it. 135 PE sounds ALMOST as good as the 128 (Which I think is about as close to perfection on an inline 6).

Car people are almost always good people in my experience.
