Lightbulb [Exhaust sound] Original BMW E46 M3 Supersprint exhaust

Installing an original BMW E46 M3 Supersprint exhaust and M-Tech rear bumper on a BMW E46 323CI.

We've just had a BMW E46 323CI in our workshop for an exhaust installation and fitment of a new bumper.

If you're impatient, you can skip right ahead to the final result and watch this video:



But if you're in for the whole story, here goes:

First off, we installed the Schmiedmann header and middle silencer replacement:



Then, the M-Tech rear bumper was installed:



Then the rear bumper insert was fitted:



In order to make space for the new, original BMW E46 M3 Supersprint exhaust, it was necessary to remove half of the spare wheel well, and weld a modification plate in to seal the well:



Now, Daniel can install the new Supersprint M3 exhaust:

Daniel goes through the E46 meticulously, ensuring that everything is as it should be, and tightens the various screws and bolts:



Here you see the final result:



Make sure to hear the car in action in the video in the top of the post.
