cat back exhausts?

any one know of any? all i keep finding are mufflers.. i came across the Greddy G2, but it says 323, so im guessing that won't fit? what im looking for is one that looks nice, has some gains performance wise, but i don't want a drone or loud exhaust.

any ideas?

I know that Borla has one. Check out their site. www.borla.com

It sells for $799 and is for the 323 and 328.

i guess one of the things im trying to figure out is if the ones for 323ci will fit a 325ci? i thought it was basically the same, but i'd wanna make sure before i do anything.

Do NOT buy Borla unless you have nothing but time on your hands.

I was rear-ended recently, and the exhaust was completely screwed, so I took the opportunity to go for something aftermarket and decided that the Borla cat-back looked pretty good.

May 31, Body shop orders exhaust from Borla, says it will take 3 weeks to get it. (June 21).

June 21 (Friday), I call the body shop, and they say, "It's not in yet, looks like Tuesday or Wednesday."

June 26 (Wednesday), I call the body shop, and they say, "It's not in yet, try tomorrow."

June 27 (Thursday), I call the body shop, and they say, "Borla just SHIPPED it today, It will be 6 or 7 days" WTF!! I lose it on body shop guy.

July 3 (Wednesday), I call the body shop, and they say, "Not in yet, try tomorrow."

July 4 (Thursday), I call the body shop and they say, "Not in yet, try tomorrow."

Now I have to call the body shop every freakin day to see if it's in yet. Worse yet, it's not like I can drive around in my car in the meantime, because it has NO exhaust right now. The rest of the car is all fixed, but just waiting for this exhaust. Had I known it would have taken this long from the start, I NEVER would have bought the damn thing, but that's just it. Borla knew that too, and found it in their advantage to lie about when I would get it, ('cause then I buy their exhaust and not someone else's). I have been without my car for 45 days now. Soon I am going to just buy a gun, wave that thing around the body shop a bit and see what happens.

My policy now is to reccommend to everyone I know that they NOT buy a Borla exhaust. They are useless people.

They are not the same. The 325 and 330 have the dual

pipes from the engine or cat and the 323 and 328 have a single pipe.

that clears up a few things for me

i hear a lot about the UUC TSE, is this a loud exhaust? i downloaded the vid, but couldn't really tell from that.. i mean i could turn the volume down and it sounds quiet, turn it up and it sounds loud.. lol
