Shipping Methods - E90 oem rear section exhaust

Does anyone have any recommendations for shipping the rear section of an oem e90 exhaust?

I have one for sale and a few members have asked me to get them shipping quotes...

UPS and Fedex gave me quotes over $1000 from AZ to FL...


Dimensions: 60x54x18

weight: 60lbs

my recommendation would be to post a thread in the local forum offering to buy one. they are a dime a dozen, and not worth their shipping weight. you can thank the fact that the M3 lends itself so well to aftermarket exhausts that OEM mufflers are often thrown out (even though it's actually a well-engineered unit).

Thanks for the reply, however, I'm actually the seller. Not looking to purchase. I've had a few members who are interested in buying my OEM exhaust and have asked about shipping cost.

that cannot be right, I have shipped the stock exhaust before and it only cost me a few hundred dollars. I would box it up and take it directly to a Fedex store and sign up for an account, usually give you 10-15% off shipping rates

That was going to be my next plan of action. When you say sign up for an account, what type of account? Business account?

There was a company doing OEM mod exhaust swaps in California and I asked for a shipping quote out of curiosity. I was quoted $400 for shipping. You may want to see what a company would charge you to ship it freight.

I just do a personal one, business they ask you for all sorts of paperwork. But if you have a tax id you can do it that way and get a better discount. I believe it is 20 percent.

Freight is definitely the best way to go. It cost me only $300 or $400 to ship an entire 7 series motor a couple years ago.
