M3 muffler on 330ci?

Will a M3 muffler with dual outlets fit on my 2004 330ci? I want the M3 rear bumper but don't want an empty exhaust cutout.

Yes, if you remove your spare tire well and have a new one put in.

It won't sound good, though.

Yup, you'll have to cut the spare wheel well out completely.

If all you want is a dual outlet muffler,don't saw your car apart! You can custom build the cross over pipe ,or get the Remus Dual outlet muffler that is made to do exactly what you want.

If you just want a good sounding exhaust, get a Rogue Ikon. Sounds great.
