E60 550i Exhaust mod

Recommended Posts

I have an 06 550i with a stock exhaust at the moment and I want to give it that nice V8 rumble. I went and spoke to a mechanic and he suggested getting a new pipe from about halfway down, sports muffler and aftermarket tip. I am limited with what I can touch due to my mechanical warranty, I can't touch my O2 sensors etc.

I'm just wondering, will this make enough of a difference? And will this mod affect fault codes etc from removing the butterfly valve in the stock exhaust? 

Thanks for the help!

See where those two pipes bolt to the forward section? Space them apart with washers. Job done :D

I might do that on the M5, easier than taking a holesaw to the mufflers!

A bit pricey.  I just went to my friendly pit stop and got two "sports" mufflers put in.  Cost me a grand all up.

Going to go get my secondary cats taken out as well.
