Hey Guys, I need some clarification help...

What's up guys, I just have a quick question and I was wondering if any of you guys could help me out.

On the 2001 330ci, I know a 2/dr m3 style rear bumper will fit. Now, If I wanted to use an OEM M3 muffler on my exhaust could I just find a diffuser to fit the m style bumper???

I have already looked at the M parts on Non M thread, I am just still a little confused..

I hope you guys can help without making me feel like an idiot

I'm searching right now, I'll just do a direct search on the actual install. That's about the only thing I haven't tried. Thanks.

spare tire well is in the way, you have to remove the tire well (cut and weld), or purchase a different exhaust designed for non-m

No no no, Sorry guys let me clarify. I know the exhaust will weld on, I just need to know what diffusers will fit on an m style bumper for a non m.
