Hi,

Does anybody know a company that can do the OEM exhaust mod in or within a sensible distance from hampshire?

Thanks,
Scott

Just went to ask a Longlife exhaust place and got quoted 50+VAT / hour and reckon around 2-3 hours work? So around 150-180 modded.

Expensive?

Great, Longlife exhaust came back to me saying that they can't do the mod afterall. So annoying!

I can't anywhere hear down south-west would do it.

Anyone know places like in Birmingham or somewhere or have yours done so I can go to there instead??

That's a very expensive option though, it's $400 / 250 for the box and whatever the huge shipping cost will be and sending mine back to them, the whole back and forth process + maybe customs charge.

Been looking and ringing all morning and still no success.

"2) A core charge of $400 will be charged for your OEM exhaust. If you choose to send us your OEM exhaust, the charge will be reversed."

Whatever that means?

Just got another reply from a custom exhaust shop:

"We regret we would not get involved in the modification of your back box situation your M3."

No one here dares to touch it! What the hell.
