The MagnaFlow Cat-Back Exhaust for your 1997 and 1998 model Z3 2.8 roadster (with 2.8 liter M52 engine) not only offers dyno-proven gains and superior fitment, it also transforms the sound on 2.8L Z3, giving it a more aggressive sound we all wish it came with from the BMW factory.
The 1997-1998 Z3 2.8 liter sounded "OK" from the factory, but as they were designed for the average "non-enthusiast" BMW owner, it's no wonder there's only a whisper of the M52 2.8 liter's available performance. This MagnaFlow exhaust cures that problem with wide-open performance muffler that yields a sporty, moderately aggressive sound. The smooth, deep tone is suitable for street cars driving around town, yet it opens up nicely under wide-open throttle to have you smiling all the way to your Z3 2.8's rev limiter.
MagnaFlow Cat-Back Exhausts are constructed of 100% polished stainless steel. The mufflers are lap-joint welded for solid construction and rugged reliability even in the most extreme conditions, and they feature a free-flowing, straight-through perforated stainless steel core, stainless steel mesh wrap, and acoustical fiber fill to deliver the performance and sound your Z3 2.8 deserves.
Each MagnaFlow exhaust is designed to provide years of trouble-free performance with better-than-stock looks, plus a lifetime warranty to back it all up. Plus, the MagnaFlow Cat-Back is significantly lighter than the factory parts, so it doesn't just look beautiful and sound great - it improves your Z3's handling as well. At BimmerWorld, we LOVE weight reduction.

NOT for cars after the 1998 model year. BMW changed the engine in the Z3 2.8 liter after the 1998 model year, so this exhaust is specifically for the earlier '97 and '98 6 cylinder engine.
