    Cheers guys, :)

    I took the pics after getting back from being fitted, just spent the past half hour polishing up the tips and back box and now really is shiny :)

    Gary......Sounds wise its a little more bassy at idle but not really much different to stock as didn't want too much noise %-(

    What is the performance benefit, what figures are BMW claiming you gain to extract your wedge from you?

    This is what BMW say,

    "Characteristic sound, exclusive look: BMW Performance Sports Silencer. A further retrofit component recently added to the BMW Original Accessory range is the BMW Performance Sports Silencer, which is available for all four- cylinder diesel power units of the BMW 1 Series and BMW 3 Series. In addition to optimising exhaust back pressure, this feature develops a specifically characteristic sound that is exceptionally impressive during acceleration. Moreover, two round chrome-plated 74-mm tailpipes give the exhaust system a strikingly sporty look"

    Performance wise probably nothing, but looks great :coolsteer)
