Thanks for this ^

I am probably going to pull the trigger on the 135i exhaust.

I did a DIY resonator delete. I cut open the resonator and wrapped the perforated holes with header tape wrap and secured it with hose clamps.
Sounds pretty good!

Like the tunnel vids best! (of course) lol

To add on with a question. Is the 135i Performance Exhaust essentially the same as the 128i one? I know some minor mods may be required to make it fit, but are there any major drawbacks design wise because it was technically created for a 135i?

It's not the same, but all the hanging points etc should be the same. I don't know off hand if it's just a muffler or comes with more piping, if it's just a muffler like the 128i PE, a good exhaust shop should be able to fit it with no issues to your 128i. There may be a small pipe diameter difference, but as I said, a good exhaust shop will make it work.

The first pic is the Performance exhaust for the 128i. The second pic is the Performance exhaust for the 135i, so you can see the difference. The Performance exhaust for the 128i is NLA, as you probably already know.

Oh interesting, thanks for posting that. Looks like a lot more work involved than I originally imagined.

Are there any aftermarket options that are similar to the PE for the 128i? The one thing I really want to avoid is any drone.
