We could, but shipping is expensive on OEM exhausts since the connecting pipes are permanently attached.

Deciding if Gloss black or Ceramic (like the Akrapovic coatings we offer) are the way to go:



Let's hear some feedback!

not a fan of gloss black, go ceramic & I could see these on my car! Does it change the sound of the exhaust?

Ever so slightly when you hammer it. I think because the wall is thinner and the tips are closer together but you really don't notice it after the first day. It is that slight and maybe not at all and is only in my head.

Why make what's out there. I think gloss black slant cut would look sharp.

Also, create a longer tip option for those with diffusers and I'm in!

Change in sound?

Does the sound change from the stock tips?

No change in sound, purely aesthetics.

This allows those that are completely happy with the stock M3 sound to retain that option, or go with an aftermarket X-Pipe/Track Pipes if desired.

OEM exhaust mod is also an option. Opportunities are unlimited for a fraction of the cost of an aftermarket exhaust.

Are you sure you arent confusing tips with a new muffler? If you are changing the tips only, I dont see how sound would be affected at all.

Does the tip need to be welded into the muffler? Very interested!

Possibly if the tips are resonated (perforated?) and replaced with non-resonated tips? I'm sure the change would be negligible though.. just throwing that out there

So you're saying all we'd have to do is drill out the rivets and clamp these new guys on? Sounds easy enough...

Cool! This is something I wished someone offered ever since I got my M3! I've grown tired of the stock exhaust tips. Will place an order soon!
