Guys a quick question about the exhaust on a E39 528i. It is different from an exhaust on a 540? Visually they do look different. However I did see a 528i whose exhaust was exactly like a 540 one? So are they different and if so can some one change the exhaust on a 528 with a 540 possibly to get more HP?

Even the 540 exhaust is restrictive compared to what you can get aftermarket. If you are going to replace the exhaust, you might as well get an aftermarket system designed for the 528i.

Eisenmann comes to mind.

the 528 exhaust was model year dependent. 00's had a single muffler, 98's and earlier had two muffler "cans" (just like the 540). Doubt you'd pick up any hp with a 540 exhaust on a 528.
