The e46 exhaust was completely bolt on. I have changed the muffler and midpipes on the e46 several times in my garage...did not require hacking off any of the stock components. I will wait and see what is offered in the next 3-4 months. The stock system is a bit too quiet though it has a pleasant tone!
