Exhaust hanger ripped - help

So in the process of installing my new supersprint / evolve echaust, I noticed that the hanger on the drivers side was partially torn.

I installed it anyway, and drove it a bit and noticed that the tips were hanging like a quarter inch too low , and looked under the car and the tear is growing

I really don't want to drive the car (my dd and only car) and need to get a new hanger.

Where can I get this? Dealer only?

I'd like to get this figured out ASAP so i can formulate a plan of attack, thanks!

Maybe I can buy a universal hanger for the mean time? So I can continue to drive while I wait for the part?

Even though it won't fit quite Rigjt and will hang too low/high

How ripped is your hangar? Maybe you can pin it with wire? (like a staple)

Half ripped and I'm afraid to drive it bc I am pretty sure it is going to totally rip if I drive it anywhere

I barely moved the car at all earlier and it increased the rip a bit just from that.

Moved it off the race ramps and it ripped the hanger a bit

I would wrap the hanger rubber with wire and staple it in place, then hit it with some duct tape. kinda ghetto but it should hold together for a few days.

Thanks for the help, mate

I ended up cutting the old one off with a razor blade.

I got lucky and found a rubber hanger from autozone that was really close to the right size, just about a sixth of an inch too short.

So I muscled that son of a bitch on there lol. It's hanging too high by a touch, but is secure and good to drive until I can get the right one from BMW. Planning on calling Monday.

Will install the hanger and then get the car on a real lift to make final adjustments

Put the new hanger on, works perfectly. Calmed the drone down too, now there is none.

There was a little before bc the echaust was hanging too high, close to the heat shields and diffuser.

Exhaust hangers are nice to have handy, especially replacing exhaust systems on the 1M. We keep 3 of these on hand on the time for situations like this. Before BMW updated the part number, the older version have a lot more fiber reinforcing the hanger, the new one tears much easier. Good for BMW, but bad for the consumers!

Those exhaust tips look wonderful! Looks like perfect alignment too!

Bumping an old thread, sorry.

Any aftermarket hanger alternatives? I have the hanger on my '11 135 closest to the midpipes stretching. I have a berk exhaust and berk downpipe. Seems that the midpipes (drive side pipe specifically) is hitting the center brace below it, making for some nasty rattles, which I think is from the hanger stretching.

Definitely need something stiffer...or some zip ties, which is the temporary fix I think. Might shim the brace away a few mm with washers, but again not a great fix.

I googled and didn't see anything...these would have been made by like kartboy or somebody when I had a subaru.

Thanks,
Morgan
