    nice 3 series. I like the mods you've done. Just curious, eventually I want to get a full exhaust made and probably a custom 3" dp aswell. How much do you think Lou's would charge to make a full exhaust(cat back) and to build a
    3" dp. I would be supplying the tip, muffler, and cat.

    He is one of the site sponsors and will hook you up. He did fatmike's CL500 as well as exhuasts for a couple other members on the board too...

    I was in this car today and now I'm really mad that it was raining. The car sounds great!

    I'm getting the same thing done to mine. I'm getting a new steering wheel too.
