My Ride: BMW e46 325ci
Anyone know any good exhaust systems for 2001 e46 325ci???

I have a 01' 325ci and I really want to put a new exhaust system on it. But I don't want it to sound like a Japanese pos haha... I want it to sound somewhat like the m3, but a little louder. I also want to get rid of the cat and put good quality headers on it. If anyone knows any good systems and maybe a rough estimate of what it might cost that would be great!!!

Thanks guys

well if you're wanting the real deal, headers will run you anywhere from 1000-1500$ and 500-1000 on the exhaust like 'jcns' said, search the forum (some of the veterans on the site will pick you apart lol) Now im sure you already know this, but there is an alternative to getting SS or AA headers or whomever you choose to buy from. Ebay headers, and they're just replicas of Supersprint, AA ect.. they normally run anywhere from 75 -300$ ( i have ebays and I bought them from someone at angie fest, make sure you get a garunteed fit also).

What's wrong with the one that came on your car? Bolting on that other crap won't improve your power numbers enough to ever pay you back for the cost.
