We recently installed the new AWE Performance free flow exhaust system on our 2013 328i X-Drive. The system installed is the AWE Touring Edition with Performance Mid-Pipe and dual quad tips. The AWE systems are available with or without the Performance Mid-Pipe and single (no bumper cutting) or dual quad tips in polished chrome or diamond black. The Performance Mid-Pipe system is a direct replacement for the original exhaust and installs directly to the catalytic converter outlet pipe. When installing the dual quad tip systems, AWE provides a positively located template for cutting the bumper for the second set of tips. This makes the modification quick and easy (and perfectly accurate).
AWE performance exhaust systems (as well as all AWE products) are quality manufactured in the US.
The video below compares the stock exhaust to the AWE system. Additionally, in driving the car, we’ve found that the interior sound is subdued and never droning or boomy. It’s actually quite sedate. The outside sound is quite performance oriented, but never raspy or too loud.
Here’s a sound and video clip of the Dinan Free Flow Exhaust system (available from www.bavauto.com) installed on an F10 BMW 535i.
