Hey guys -
My Step dad has this poor old 89 525i he refuses to get rid of.. The exhaust is going bad again - from the rear cat back. Dealers want like 1100 to do it... Its just not worth it. So I took it to a small exhaust shop and they found the worst part was the resonator that is just past the cat. Great.. SO for 100 bucks I just had them cut it out and weld in pipes. Woops now its quiet inside but loud as hell outside...

So what would you guys do? Anyone know someone that can get the parts and do the job real cheap like??

BLAH!
Jeff

Peper - Wow, $1100 is a lot of money for a stock 525 muffler! I had that quote for a '88 M5 muffler (before I flaked out and didn't buy the car).
