Hi, I have already posted this in the Cooper S section but have had no responses from there. I need to sort it out urgently as the exhaust has completly gone and sounds like a mna farting in a baked bean can now!

I have a crack (now split completley) in the exhaust system just near what looks like the downpipe/cat. Is there a BMW diagram to show the exhaust sections? then it is eaiser for me to describe!


I have been told It can not be welded up. I was wondering if anyone knows how much a new section of exhaust is from BMW. I already have a Miltek catback system so was wondering if it is worth getting a miltek exhaust and sports cat instaed of standard.

Am I right in thinking that the whole section from manifold to the beginning of the cat back is all one piece as I can not see any join.

Sorry for all the questions I only just bought the car last Friday.

Sorry for the second thread but I need answers quickly, and I'm not taking it to BMW.

Thanks,
Rich

Try looking here for details of exhaust system and all other bits
RealOEM.COM   Online BMW Parts Catalog

It is all one piece - manifold to cat inclusive.

To get prices you will need to talk to BMW.

You say you have a miltek cat back then why not phone around for Miltek manifold prices?

It does not look if you are doing much to help yourself on this one ............

Ok , I know I was being stupid not asking BMW. Kind of wish I didn't. They want £915 inc VAT without fitting. Might as well get a jan speed manifold with a high flow cat and be done with it.

if it is a low cost fix you need now, most exhaust custom shops will be able to produce a small length to fix the pipe. though if you can afford to change now then have a look around for an exhaust you like, there are many sound clips on youtube and some place on mini 2

Contact one of the site sponsers for prices on GTT or Janspeed or a Milly ..... Makes a lot more noise but will still cost 600-700 fitted even for an expensive one and even less for the milly i recon.
