E90 3 Series Exhaust Tip Size
In the case of E90, E91, E92, and E93 BMW, the 328i, 330i, and 325i all have the same tailpipe outer diameter of 2.5-inches.
The tip’s diameter depends on various factors, and the general rule is that the more performance the car has, the wider the exhaust tips are. The reason is simple, larger displacement, a higher number of cylinders, or high horsepower ratings results in more exhaust fumes that need to escape from the cylinders.
How to install exhaust tips on the E90
Installing E90-specific muffler tips
There are two ways of how you can install your newly acquired exhaust tips. One is by using a clamp connection, often pre-installed on the product. If this is the case, all you need to do is physically put the tip on the exhaust system and bolt it on with the appropriate tool.
Our advice is to wait until the car is cooled down since the exhaust can be very hot after a long drive, and since heat causes the metal to expand if you bolt your exhaust tips on a hot muffler, it might become loose once the metal is cold.
Installing generic exhaust tips
On the other hand, if you are installing generic exhaust tips not specifically designed for BMW, you need to take your car to the muffler shop for professional installment, as some welding or drilling might be required.
