Exhaust Gasket Question

I purchased a full aftermarket exhaust (midpipe and axleback) and need some good exhaust gaskets. Are the aftermarket and OE gaskets the same size for both the downpipes to midpipes (2 gaskets) and the midpipe to axleback gasket (1 gasket)? I have aftermarket downpipes as well, but the OE size gaskets were the same size. Just wanted to double check if it was the same size gaskets for a full exhaust. Can someone confirm?

Try the 135i guys

i think OEM gaskets are better and should be the same size as aftermarket- the pieces are designed to be sold separate.

Goodluck

All this. And I think you stumbled into the wrong section.
