Mein Auto: 1997 Z3 2.8
Aftermarket performance exhaust? Yes or no?

New here...I'll figure the forum out. Love the '97 2.8 Z3 I recently purchased, what a nice car. Have owned several cars and trucks with after market add ons and was looking at cat back systems or mufflers for the Z3, several available, and pricey. Anyone have any experience or recommendations?... Any issues, is it worth doing, specific brand, etc.? Thanks.

I also have a 97 2.8. I installed a Supersprint exhaust about five years ago. Impeccable stainless steel Italian craftsmanship, easy bolt on installation, great mellow tone at idle and a nice wail at WOT. No drone.
I doubt there are any really practical power gains to be realized, but you do save about 20 lbs static weight compared to the OEM exhaust.
