Something doesn't seem right with this, that price is too good to be true. Another BMW dealer did that's and ended up canceling everyone's orders because of it.

Anyone have experience with 335 coupes? I always wanted to pick up a gently used one but was afraid of the maintenance and replacement part costs. Help a fellow slickdealer out

I will never understand aftermarket or "performance" exhaust. Just do the golf tee mod if you want your exhaust to sound different (I mean louder).

I've done golf tee mod on an e36 328i and while louder it wasn't even that noticeable.

Exhaust is purely for sound so like a sound system if people enjoy why stop them.

Since you both know what the golf tee mod is, you both are probably on the same side of the camp here...

As much as I love sound, there IS a thing as too loud and obnoxious.

I love the sound of this though - if you've ever heard a 335is, that's what this is.

Stay away would be my advice. I bought a 2008 225i convertible 3 years ago, and every year I've paid over $1K for things like broken injectors, water pump failure, fuel pump failure, squeaky brakes, and computer failure. Used BMWs are only good if you are handy with cars and can handle repairs on your own.

BMW non turbo models are very reliable and the only reason you paid so much is mechanics are a rip off these days. If you are resourceful they can be repaired for a fraction of the cost.

For a example an OEM tailight on BMW goes out dealership wants 250.00.. Aftermarket looks the same and is only 75 dollars and a 10 min install. Yet people will pay the dealership then bitch about much the cars cost. They honestly cost no more than a honday civic for non turbo models.

A used 335i full of problems because bmw turbo models have tons of problems. Not to mention the guy before you drives it like a race car. BMW non turbo models are reliable like any honda civic

Weight reduction would be the main benefit, since power gains are usually minimal compared to a catless downpipe / JB4 / Cobb.

I actually did the golf tee mod on a 2008 335 to stop the metal exhaust flap from vibrating. I personally think exhaust mods are a complete waste of money and are annoying to listen to.

Definitely. I was going to reference the 335is but wasn't 100% sure that the performance exhaust is what was on that car. I was actually going to pick one up but am waiting on the BMW M2 now.

Yes there is a thing as too loud and obnoxious but then there is loud and sexy.

I haven't heard about the golf tee mod in years thou. I wonder if it was possible on an e46 m3.
