Retro fit 240i Std Silencer after MPE removal

Post by Perc » Mon Aug 28, 2017 9:31 am

Hi guys just a quick heads up if anyone is retro fitting their standard silencer, after removing the MPE silencer - and they want to sell the original exhaust clamp with the MPE.

To buy a genuine MPE silencer clamp is approx £35/45 + vat (pending discount levels)

I used this clamp here with great results: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/76MM-O-D-3-IN ... 2749.l2649

The clamp is slightly smaller @76mm OD - but due to the internal wrap design it will open out ok to 80mm no probs. You also need to order some longer coach bolts (M10 x 65mm) - as opening up the clamp leaves the supplied bolts too short to get the nuts on. M10 coach bolts are approx £2 via ebay. You can apply some exhaust paste if you wish. All sorted for approx £16.
