I have a 528i with a E36 engine and I want to install a new muffler that's quiet but without impeding performance. Any recomendations?

What do you mean 528 with e36 engine? You mean a m50 in an e39? Why? And just to finish off that dead horse - Magnaflow. Do a little search and you'll find ton of info

Maybe he means his E39 528 has the same engine as an E36 328 ?

So you swapped a 3.2 liter M3 engine into an E39 and you don't know what type of muffler to use?

Am I missing something here?

a few months ago, some one here found this car on ebay and every one here gave an opion on it, the ebay seller listed as a 523i or 532i, an m3 motor w/m5 tranny. i would go w/magnaflow. or stock.
