MPE for 328i?

I've recently decided to keep my 2011 328i for another two years or so. I've got barely over 53k miles on it and won't likely get it to 60k before I decide to sell it.

Now, I know with the 328i what you've got performance wise is basically all you're going to get. That being said, I would like a bit more growl from my exhaust, even though it won't improve performance. I've looked into the BMW MPE a bit and think it might be just what I'm looking for.



I did some searching on the E90 boards and didn't find much about the MPE and 328i. Has anyone put one on theirs? And were you pleased with the exhaust note it provided?

Well, for one, when I go to Advanced Search and use "328i MPE" as they keywords, the only thread that's returned is mine.

When I search generally for MPE it brings back 6 or so threads with owners of the 335i.

The only one that seemed to be specific to the 328i was this one: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...&highlight=mpe

Maybe I'm doing something wrong with my searches?

I installed one recently - it's fantastic. It preserves the signature sound of this motor but makes it angrier.

That's great to hear. Have you noticed any issue with gas milage or any other changes in how the car drives or feels?

A slight drop in mileage, but that's likely due to me flogging the car to hear more of that exhaust. No appreciable performance changes.

Also, you'll have more luck if you search for "PE" rather than "MPE". The clips available on YouTube etc are pretty accurate - but you'll be plenty thrilled to hear it live on your own car!
