Performance Exhaust

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Does anyone know if BMW will offer the performance exhaust system they currently do for this model? I also seem to have seen some photos of an m4 in pebble that seemed to have carbon fiber tips on the exhaust. What option is that and is it just replacing the tips or is it the entire exhaust system? Thanks

Yeah. While there hasn't been an official announcement yet, I believe Scott has hinted that the exhaust (and diffuser and front spoiler) seen on the M4 Concept will be offered as M Performance parts shortly after the introduction of the F8x.

Really interested to hear what they sound like with this exhaust, because it seems like they need desperate help in that department.

Nobody "knows" yet, but high likelihood that they will offer a performance exhaust at some point. The carbon tips on that show car were just carbon finishers that will probably be offered separately once the performance line for the F8x M cars is released.

I wish BMW would offer the performance parts/exhausts as an option for the car that can be specified when you place your order.
As annoying as I find it that I MAY have to buy another exhaust to get the sound I want ( and that should come as standard) on an M3 , I find it more irritating that if I decided that the sound was not great and I wanted the performance exhaust I now have to buy in effect a second exhaust from BMW ( already paid for the stock one with the car).
Offering these parts from the factory would allow customers to order exactly what they want without charging them twice for the same part- Porsche does it.
Come on BMW sort it out.

On the link to the Pistonheads "build your own M4" competition, there was sports exhaust optional. That was an official cooperation with BMW and they had their own microsite with BMW configurator.

So, from that it seems like there absolutely will be a Sports Exhaust.

BTW, it could be had with different exhaust tips in that configurator, one of the options was the carbon fibre that was seen on the Pebble Beach concept.

Good to know... How much? Lol I know I am getting the lip for sure for the M3 as soon as it's available. Exhaust? Let me drive the girl first and will decide later.

That doesn't necessarily means that's the case. You could choose the MPE as an option on the configurator for the E9xM, but it didn't come equipped on the car from the factory.

+1. Having to throw away a perfectly good exhaust to get a sportier option sucks. Should be a factory option. Then maybe it would be ~$1,500 rather than $3,000+.

That's a problem with many of the performance options. You pay twice.

Totally agree and that is one thing I am disappointed with BMW. I am sure I will leave the exhaust alone since so far the sound is descent.

If this were actually the case I would definitely be ordering it but since it's not I'm less likely to do any mods on the car as I don't want to have to pay twice for something like this. Hell even if it was installed at the port and not at the factory that would still be better than having to buy it from the dealerships and pay their insane prices.

I am the same way, but since it is a new car/ platform, there are gonna be tons of vendors and companies scrambling to release parts for these cars. Exhaust. lips, spoilers etc. Gonna have to wait a few months until they start releasing some products. Otherwise, gonna have to buy parts from BMW which = more$$

Even when they do it's still having to purchase parts twice in essence, albeit most likely at a much cheaper price than what BMW offers for most things. It would just be nice if for once when launching a new car they would also launch the performance line of parts and allow for them to be factory installed as well.

One can dream....

Everyone wants everything don't they. I am sure no one is imagining the logistics involved in just randomly putting on different parts in a factory. Has anyone here actually been to a factory? Every single piece and tool is specially made to do ONE job. Once you start introducing new parts into the job things get a lot more complicated and expensive - Fast.

And WTF is this about paying two times for an exhaust? So you are saying the WHOLE car modifying culture is pointless because "they should do it from the factory". What? What dream world are you living in? Since when has a MFG EVER decided to factory install hardcore performance parts for the 1% of people who think the factory exhaust just "will not do". Seriously. What.

Just an FYI - ALL PARTS INSTALLED AT THE PORT are now FULLY RESIDUALIZED on leases. I don't know how it can get even better for someone who wants performance parts on their car.

Rant over.

If you want (M) Performance parts on your car, you can possibly be paying twice for your:
- exhaust
- brakes
- seats
- front bumper
- rear bumper
- gear lever
- interior trim
etc...

And you already paid for the original (non-performance) of these parts.

Adding some 10-15 different performance parts, for a complete model line (example: 314, 316, 318, 320, 325, 328, 335 al have the same performance parts) , to the inventory of thousands of parts, doesn't seem like a big deal to me.

Integrating it into a factory production line, that's something else.

But if other manufacturers can let you choose at order time between different seats (comfort / sport) or a standard or sport exhaust, why can't BMW ?

BMW M is trying to be like Porsche IMO. Porsche let's you choose their performance exhaust as part of your build. If they can, then BMW should be able to also.

I know I will just check the performance exhaust as part of my build if it was offered. So will many people.

I share the same sentiment. In fact, if the parts are available before delivery i am going to insist that they be installed when the car is ready (ie: front lip spoiler and rear diffuser).

Er........?? thanks for that. BMW already have 100s of configurations and options for every model - adding a few performance parts to the options list would not be a problem, other manufacturers manage easily enough. No one said the whole modifying culture was pointless either.
