Rogue Engineering El Diablo Exhaust on 330i

I recently got given a El Diablo exhaust which is made for an m3 as you all know. I am trying to make it work on a sedan. I have done some research and it seems that fitting a m3 exhaust on a sedan or regular coupe is actually not that challenging if you are willing to cut out the well for your spare tire which I am willing to do.

Where I am struggling though is finding the right bumper/diffuser to use. I was wondering if anybody knows if it is possible to cut out holes for the tips on an mtech 1 bumper. I know this would not be what I would do in the long run but would it work until I find a new bumper to use? Also does anybody know who sells an m3 rear bumper that is fitted for sedan?

I am excited to try to get this exhaust onto my car and know it will be pretty neat once fitted. Thanks in advance for help

Are you Determined to go down this path ?


What comes to mind for me is to sell it for every nickel you can get for it, and then buy a new or used great fitting, sounding, & performing cat-back exhaust for your model BMW.



Good luck,

Rob, comparing to an m3 exhaust, what system would you get for a 330.

I can only speak to what I absolutely know.

The Magnaflow 16533 & Ebay header (copy of the Super Sprint). It's a great combo that makes power & sounds great, you can listen to it in my dyno video below.

And my custom 3" exhaust with cutout.

I am a big fan of quad tips so I do want to stick on this route. I know I could make a custom quad exhaust but it just wouldn't be the same. I realize not everybody likes what I am trying to do but I think it will turn out pretty well.
