Exclamation E46 non-M Quad exhaust

Just finished my quad exhaust

you need to cut out the spare tire well with a grinder

then patch it up with 2 aluminum sheets of metall all held down by screws and black silicone and some rubber sealant spray.

here are some pics and some videos on how it sounds
im not telling anyone what exhaust im running so dont ask lol

All I can do is shake my head, it's a 325. I don't care for the black wheels, the fake M3 vents and I'm pretty sure the trunk will let lose when you try to throw the spare in. I'm sure your next project will be installing an M3 badge...

If you cut the spare tire well out, why didn't you just go with an M3 rep bumper so that the rear end looks semi decent instead of showing two oval cans and a half assed trunk that will probably fall to the floor when you put anything in there now?
