I can't see how there would be any more to gain from this than cosmetics...especially
based on esscolab's quote above. A simple exhaust (muffler only) swap typically
does not result in much performance increase. Depending on the car, it can drop some
weight, but nothing significant enough to really be noticed...

Purely cosmetic from what I can report.

But it looks so good that it's not a problem to be purely cosmetic Wish I could do the same! (and have a 135i as well... but you know)

Saying that, it's definatly noticeable from starting the engine and has a deeper bass resonation over 5k revs but not droning on long journeys i'm happy to report.
