Hamann exhaust tips both sides conversion

I am doing the dual tail pipe conversion to my 730 to look like the 740 and up, both sided exhaust. I am either putting stock 740 exhaust tips or the ones from Hamann. As you can see the 730 only comes with exhaust on one side which in my opinion looks dated for a car of this calibre.

I would try to keep it stock - so If you want to do the 740/750 look, I would opt for the dual rectangular ones - OR - get the quad 760 -

I find the stock tail pipes a bit soft and if I'm going to spend, might as well go for something different....You can see the tips in the gallery here:

The Hamanns look good imo, however, the new factory standard on many vehicles now is rectangular...Hey Salambo are u doing dual exhaust on both sides, if so do that have to change the rear bumper skirt, how does that work?

Yes I have to change the rear diffuser(m diffuser for me) which has two holes, it's just the bottom part of the rear bumper, diffuser which comes replaced. I could not wait and sent it in this morning, will be picking it up on Friday, pics to follow. I am also loosing the 730Li badging.

Looks great! Congrats.
Debadging is simple - I did it as well and used dental floss and some good cleaner afterwards.

The workshop rang and told me that it just needs alittle adjustment to the left tail pipes and spray paint for now.

Hi SAMLAMBO.
I also own a 730 and considering the dual exhaust upgrade, I just wanted to know if the exhaust tips on your right side are connected to any exhaust pipe or are they just installed without being connected, because the 730 has only one side exhaust.

Thanks

You need to get the 740 rear diffuser and superstring exhaust from the older 645 which will fit the proper conversion

The right side is connected to the left side exhaust so there is only one exhaust box with two outlets. Sorry already sold the car and dont have pictures.
