If you want your car to look as good leaving as getting there, BMW F30 exhaust tips for 335i, 340i, 328i might be the accessory you need. The beauty of a vehicle doesn’t only reside at its front. The backside should be equally appealing to evoke that overall sleek look. Although the rear bumper and spoiler add up a lot when it comes to a car’s sportiness, the exhaust tips are surprisingly influential.
Not only do they improve a car’s looks, these tips also can enhance your vehicle’s sound, which is not something the other aesthetic upgrades can do.
In this entry, we’re going to list four brilliant BMW F30 exhaust tips for models 335i, 340i, and 328i that will spruce up the aggressiveness and the overall sportiness of your favorite BMW vehicle.
Which Exhaust Tips Are Compatible With the BMW F30?
Although confining our selection to tips that fit the F30 3 Series and F32 4 Series narrows things down, there are still various F30 models available out there. And we’re talking specifically about the models 335i, 340i, 328i, and 330i
For instance, the BMW F30 335i and 340i have a 2.5-inch diameter for the exhaust. The 328i model features the same inner diameter, although the outer one needs to be smaller, as the two exhausts are adjacent to one another.
The outer diameter of the exhaust tip for the F30 should be a maximum of 4 inches across all models. Exhaust tips with a diameter any larger could make contact with the rear diffuser or even not fit at all.

How to Install BMW F30 Exhaust Muffler Tips
Once again, the installation of any exhaust muffler tips should be left to professionals unless you have a lot of experience with similar or identical aftermarket upgrades.
That said, the basics of installing exhaust tips (so long as they’re bolt-on) boils down to inserting the exhaust tip into the current muffler tips you have on your F30 (so long as they aren’t themselves aftermarket). You’ll need a screwdriver or a hex tool to do this, depending on the exhaust tip model.
Do any of these tips require welding?
