130i - ideas for noise increase?

Post by j_lay250 » Mon Mar 20, 2017 9:56 pm

Hi guys,

Bought the car 2 months ago but bit underwhelmed by lack of noise now I'm used to it.

Any mods worth trying out before I commit to spending more money on intakes/exhausts?

More money?

What have you spent already on intakes/exhausts?

Fit a Y pipe by removing centre silencer, works very nicely apparently with a performance exhaust.

You are right twenny. I had a 130 with BMW performance exhaust centre silencer removed and I also had bmwp airfilter made a nice induction sound also. So that's what I would fit wasn't to loud on motorways either

I had my backbox removed and tips welded on in it place. Makes more noise now and pops on over run, nice cheap mod but not to everyone's taste

So you get the picture... you can also go for the pp backbox,but is way more expensive!
