Removed the stainless steel exhaust tips on the BMWP exhaust and fitted carbon ones.
Hi Dan.
just want to say love how your car looks mate! Regarding the exhaust tips. could you link me where you got the double exhaust from? is it as simple as just fitting the exhaust tips onto end of OEM? thanks
Cheers :)

So OEM 130i exhaust tips push straight on. I’ve got the BMW Performance exhaust with welded tips. So I had to remove the welds first. I got the tips from Aliexpress for around $40 each. 73mm inlet, 76mm outlet and asked for them to be 10cm long (they come as 17cm standard). The inlet size will most likely be different on an oem exhaust. These bolt straight on

Hope this helps :)
Now: 2006 130i with even more goodies ;)

Awesome buddy thanks for the tip. I’m really quite a noob when it comes to exhaustsImage I’m more about the aesthetics.

So my 116i has that ugly oval shaped exhaust. So I’m sure I could fit one of them one. What I really want is the double exhaust tips like yours. Will that require a new backbox. I’ve seen on eBay exhaust tips that are attached to one(linked below) would they be alright. I really like the look of the alinexpress ones you linked but I want to go for the double exhaust look without actually having to change around the underneathsImage

Ah..... in that case it’s going to be a new backbox really. Unless you start chopping and welding the existing one

So the few mods I have done for my cone is a heat shield and I have run an intake pipe through my fog

My passenger fog light was already damaged so I decided to do a little bit of test fitting for an induction pipe and it works !!!

Here was my fog totally farked Image
Image

Got creative and cut that biatch up lol
Image

Flexible pipe was a purrrfect fit Image
Image

Cone back on with heat shield should be a nice improvement. Due to heat my car lost 10wkw so yeah it’s a big problem

Being that my E88 is the first rear wheel drive car I've owned I've always wanted to..

Auto box on my 130i had a service this morning .... new filter, gasket + oil

I have a GM box which takes Dexron VI fluid - the stuff that came out was original (on 65k miles) + not too bad slightly darker than the new stuff going in but there were metal filings on the magnet in the sump which was obviously doing its job

All running very smoothly no clunking thru the gears as I had expected as the box has to 'relearn' the driving style

All very competently carried out by a Dutch man in Marsden, West Yorks :D
