I used a small air angle dill and got the rivets out without taking off the bumper.

I didn't remove the exhaust. Putting the rivets back in was easy.

BTW the genuine BMW rivets are pretty cheap at Tischer.

Just thought I'd update this thread.

I just had my new CYBA Black Chrome exhaust tips installed by the pros. It took them a half hour from start to finish and the end product turned out amazing

I suppose this could be done as a DIY however much easier and faster with air tools and a hoist as well as dropping the exhaust a bit.

If that shop only took a half hour, I'd just tell others to go to a professional too. That's only like $50 to save you the aggravation of getting said tools, unbolting the exhaust, etc.

I actually don't recommend nice bits. You'll make them dull and useless. So buy the cheap multipacks and toss them when you're done.

You don't need to drop the exhaust completely, you can just disconnect most of the mounting points. But, dropping the rear section really isnt that hard if you have the right equipment.

An Angle drill is highly recommended for the rivets topside. And it should take you 30 minutes if you have all the proper tools.

I am working on extending the stock tips. Finally got one extended....but it is taking me FOREVER. Any other tips to get these off / drill through this hard metal? I have tried a cordless drill as well as a powerful drill hammer. All w titanium tips or cobalt tips.

Here is a pic of the one tip extended. I want to do the rest... but almost ready to give up unless I find a faster solution.
