This Exhaust is for the E36 generation 328i/328is/328ic. It will NOT fit the 1999 model year 4-door sedans, as that is the newer generation of the sedan. It will fit all 1996, 1997, 1998 328i sedan, and all 1996, 1997, 1998 and 1999 328is coupe and convertible models. ** Not for 1999 328i sedan **
The MagnaFlow Cat-Back Exhaust for the 1996-1999 E36 328i not only offers excellent fitment and dyno-proven gains, it also gives your E36 328's M52 engine the sound it should have from the factory.
The E36 328i and 328is came with a pretty tame exhaust note from the BMW factory, which should be no surprise as they were designed for the average "non-enthusiast" BMW owner. With added restriction from the factory, all that remained of the E36 328i's exhaust note was a whisper of the M52 2.8 liter's available performance. MagnaFlow exhausts completely cure that problem with non-restrictive performance mufflers that offer a moderately aggressive sound. The smooth, deep tone is suitable for mild-mannered street cars driving around town, yet it opens up nicely under wide-open throttle to have you smiling all the way to your E36 328i'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 E36 328i or 328is has always deserved.
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 heavy "tank like" factory BMW 328 system, so it doesn't just look beautiful and sound great - it improves handling as well. Mmmmmm, weight reduction!
- Dyno-proven gains
