Performance exhaust - M235i

Post by Jiggaman » Mon Sep 04, 2017 9:05 am

I picked up a performance exhaust from EBay and before I go and get it fitted I wanted to check I have everything I need.

Basically all I have is the backbox. No sleeve to connect it to the midpipe and no hanger.

Question is so I need to buy anything (sleeve or hanger) or can I take it to an exhaust fitter as is?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Well in answer to my own question I didn't need anything additional as you can use the original hangers and the backbox can be welded on.

Only problem is I didn't do my homework properly and ended up buying a performance exhaust from a M135i which doesn't fit the M235i as the coupe has longer exit pipes.

So I have a used BMWP exhaust for a M135i if anyone is interested.

I'll be putting an eBay advert on tonight.

An 80mm sleeve clamp is the 'correct' way to fit one. Makes removing it for resale much easier.

The garage I went to didn't have the correct sleeve so were going to weld it. Seems a little strange they didn't have a sleeve as they're supposed to be custom exhaust specialists.?

It's a huge diameter sleeve, even 3" is very rare.

People have managed to stretch a 3" on (using longer bolts). That costs about £12, vs £60 for the BMW special.

I'm in Bristol. The exhaust is in very good condition and the last owner said he only did about 1000 miles on it. It has chrome tips which are in very good condition.

Let me know if your interested otherwise it's going on EBay.
