Mounted M performance exhaust

Today I mounted M-performance exhaust pipes on my wife's F20. What do you think

Is it just the back box and not a full system?

Installation is easy and you can easily do it yourself. It is a strip around the exhaust opening must be varnished, or simply cut out the opening for the list ends. cut old exhaust and tighten the clamp on the new dual exhaust. really easy, costs about 400 euros in Norway

It sure gives the car a more potent look!
I'll have my tailpipes installed next Thursday, they did not get the parts in time for delivery day a month ago.

I noticed that on my car (120d M-sport) there is already space in the diffusor for twin pipes. While on other M-sports, like the one of iBeech here on the forum, the diffusor is obviously tailor made for one pipe. Strange and not logic

Anyway: Congrats Bimmerman! The F20 always looks good in white, and now it looks even more powerful. I love the "M" on each pipe!

good evening superspeed. There are long waiting time for performance parts due to. high demand. When you get double outlet exhaust, you get the right appearance that we like. M-sport F20 looks very rough. sorry it did not exist when I bought the car.

I'll go for my 118i M Sport next week and I would like mounting M Performance tail pipes but they aren't available in Spain at the moment. Maybe in September

there is a difference between sound, there is a deeper exhaust sound at idle or at low RPM.

Any chance you can post audio or video file to allow us understanding how much it is improved?

M Sport (but also "normal" versions) with one pipe exhaust look out of place for a bimmer
I think this is a must for all
