About 20 minutes with a ratchet wrench. Two hangers & one pipe clamp. Found it easier to detach the hangers from the car to swap them to the new muffler.

$160 sounds OK. There are a lot of threads on this exhaust. The 4 cylinder guys seem to be more pleased with the results.

I just installed mine about three weeks ago. I'm pretty happy with it. I have some caveats in my life such as a family, and the fact that I do drive clients in my car from time to time. So why I like it may be different than what you'd expect. I like it because it's dead quiet at cruising (no drone), but really opens up when you accelerate from 2500rpm on. It's definitely noticeable from within the cabin and from outside, as I had the chance to listen to it on another member's car before purchasing. I actually purchased it from Newport Beach BMW that sold it for $845 and installed it for $120.

Great before/after video. I am sold. My biggest worry about doing exhaust on a 4 cylinder is to avoid sounding like a civic with a rice can on it. The M performance sounds very good and not ricey.

I had it on my 135i and loved the sound. Cold start is incredible. No idea if it added any performance gains, but the sound was totally worth it!

Performance exhaust

Just ordered a new 428 coupe M Sport, and i selected Z10 Performance Exhaust. My question is: Is this a system from engine back or just the muffler? Thanks for the information.

How much weight does it save?

What is the horsepower increase?

You bought an exhaust system for your 4-cylinder car, based upon how different exhaust systems sounded on youtube videos of 6-cylinder cars?

Negligible and none. Bolt-on exhausts are about sound.

as mentioned before, totally happy with mine. But whoever buys it should NOT expect it to sound anything like the 335.

Who did your install? I've been calling around for quotes and the dealers are quoting MSRP but will "match" local prices. I found one dealer offering the MPE for $1014 (excl tips $200)+ $250 labor. I'm also being told stock tips don't fit.

Stock tips fit. Have black chrome on now but did run the stock ones with no issues. Just take a little care on installing them. They have 3 spring clips that grip the muffler pipe & you need to guide them into position. Easiest to do with muffler off the car.
