Upon the release of the M140i and 240i, it became
instantly recognizable that the exhaust note from the mighty 3.0 turbo had
fallen below the levels of expectation from owners looking for the emotional
release that comes with driving such a powerful vehicle.
BMW in their defence offered in some part to
recompense owners with the MPE (M Performance Exhaust).
However, we believe that the MPE (and whilst
offering a nice improvement over the stock rear silencer), fails to fully hit
the mark sonically.
With this in mind, we developed the BCS
Centre Silencer Delete Pipe set.
The result of installing our pipe set completely
redefines the stock exhaust note, not only by increasing the overall sound
output but by redefining the character of the sound and in so doing proving
drama in the form of pops and burbles which have become the stuff of legend on
this platform, especially in the Sport and Sport+ modes.
Now considering normally that the removal of
silencers and resonators may introduce Unwanted Sounds And Frequencies
(AKA Drone) into the passenger compartment, we are pleased to confirm
that we have detected none of these said USAFs, which means there is no
downside to performing this modification.
If you are looking for an even greater sonic experience we have designed the pipe set to be upgradeable to our full Powervalve boost actuated variable tone system. If this is of interest, please navigate back to our product listing for the M140i or 240i.
As mentioned earlier the MPE goes some way to improving
the stock exhaust note, however, for some owners who are left craving more
sound, the temptation is to remove the centre silencers as well...
Having tested this carefully, we have discovered
that this, unfortunately, introduces drone into the passenger compartment which
is thoroughly unpleasant and spoils the driving experience.
To this end, we developed the totally unique BCS DDE
(Dynamic Drone Eliminator), the product is defined as being dynamic as it
leaves the sound increase in place, shaving off a fraction of the db's whilst
eliminating completely all drone.
We, therefore, suggest that if you have purchased, or have an MPE installed on your M140i / 240i and you are looking for a greater depth of sound, you consider the DDE variant
of this product and navigate back to the appropriate page on our M140i / 240i product listing.
Please note this product will not fit the Convertible
The product is completely MOT friendly and suitable for both road and track use.
The fitting time for this product is 1 hour.
Please note that in order to install the centre silencer delete pipe set, the original BMW exhaust system will require cutting just before the rear silencer on the dimple that BMW provides to mark the cutting position prior to installing an MPE.
The images below show the details of where the cut is to be made.
