Mein Auto: 2012 BMW 328i
Where can I get the new BMW 328i F30 Performance Exhaust?

Hey guys,

So let me get straight to the point:

Where can I buy the new BMW f30 M exhaust system for my 2012 BMW 328i?
Where/how can I get it installed?
Will BMW dealerships sell and install it?
Will it void my service warranty?

Please let me know! Thanks!

It's an official BMW product, so you can get it from your dealer, they will install it, and no it won't void your warranty.

Can this be part of the lease deal and installed at the port? I know 335i can.

If you get the CCA Club going, you get a 20% discount on parts and labor. Should walk out for about $1000 installed.

What do you guys think of it? I love the sound from the few youtube videos I have seen with the exception of the really rough gurgle off throttle. Is this typical for after markets exhausts?

Most, not all. Double check with yours.

Would have also saved me $500 on the car purchase if I hadn't let my membership lapse.

mther f$cker!! I wish I would've known...oh well, I guess I'll join it now so I can get discounts on the Dinan or M Performance tune over the summer.

So annoyed...I mean, I guess I "force" them to match bmwpartpros.com, which is basically at cost anyhow, so I don't even know if they can go lower...but the 20% off of labor is juicy good.

How long do you have to keep the membership before getting all those benefits? Mine is due, debating whether to continue, three years never used any benefits.

Hehhee, 20% off labor rates for a number of hours they determine and can add 20% to if desired?

The interior video above I liked. The exterior video sounded like someone dropped a magnaflow on a 1.8 liter honda in 1999 in a pep boys parking lot. Since video is such an inconsistent medium for the sound of exhaust, I won't judge until I hear it in person.

20% off is instant.

Money off the car purchase, you have to have 12 months membership no lapse. I had a 30 day lapse thinking I was not buying a car for my wife, no biggie. Then I bought the 3 for myself. Whoops.

I have found exterior exhaust vids to be nearly useless at capturing actual sound.

I have had people insist I post vids when I get to production catback on, but I hesitate knowing whats going to happen. In the meantime, here is the prototype on the dyno(where sound cuts out when it gets LOUD making it even more useless).
