Who has installed an axel back exhaust themselves?

I have a Meisterschaft GT2 exhaust coming in this week with SR pipes. I am aware that the installation is a "simple" bolt on, but nothing is simple to me when it comes to anything mechanical.
I tried to search on YOUTUBE to M3 aftermarket exhaust to sort of get an idea of what would be involved, but had no luck. I am doing this at my friend's garage and he has a lift.
I was hoping to get a list of tools required and a brief walk through of what I would have to do before the package comes. The day the package comes I am heading over to my friend's garage so I was hoping to get an idea of what I would be getting into before I tackle the job.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

In the DIY section there is a good write up about it. I'm on mobile app and I don't know how to copy the link or I would post it.

If you can solve a puzzle, you can swap an exhaust

I had to use some lube on the rubber mounting pieces to get the old exhaust out and the new exhaust in.

It's straight forward man, congrats on the new exhaust and keep us posted on how you like it. With a lift you'll have it banged out about 3 hours

Thanks guys, I did not even realize this forum had a DIY section! I am excited and am looking forward to it. I will take with me some WD-40 or some kind of lube to help with the hangers. My friend told me that car wash gel worked the best for him since it was so thick and slippery.

I just got my Meisterschaft GT2 system in the mail and am stoked!!!
Once I get the factory system off, would it be best for me to hook up the muffler and then install the connecting pipes or would it be best if I assembled the entire GT2 system and then put the connecting pipes into the factory system and then connect it as whole?

I would do it in pieces bud. When I did my meisterschaft gts axle back the biggest issue was the hangers. Even with lube and pliers it took me and my buddy forever
