OP - I *think* I saw a video of your exhaust somewhere on Instagram. Sounds awesome!
Question: can you control the valve from the cabin? With a hybrid the loud exhaust kinda only makes sense when you're in Sport mode. In Comfort I would want it to stay whisper quiet as the gas engine goes in and out. What's your solution like?

Very nice build and modifications. I'm looking to add 9x20 and 10,5x20 wheels to my 530e too - can you let me know the ET-values (offset) for your wheels and if they touch the body of the car when going over a bump ? The guys from my tyre-center say they are pretty much sure are too wide for the car ... but that's obviously not correct as I've seen multiple people here mounting that size already. But seen spacers are not allowed in Belgium I'm looking for the right ET-values to have the correct stance (without the potential use of spacers).

I dont have a valve, its not very loud when in eco or comfort mode, cant really hear it too much with the windows up. But its definitely louder than stock, but nothing that bothers me, no drone. Its louder in sport and sport + mode. But if you want whisper quiet then maybe stick to stock or find an exhaust option with a valve, but I'm not aware of any. I've had exhausts on all my cars in the past, so its something I like and dont mind.

The 20x9/10.5 will definitely work, on stock suspension 20x9 +30 20x10.5 +40 will fit flush inside the fenders, if you're lowering it you can push the front and rear out 5mm and it'll still be flush. Hope that helps!

nice build! man, I can't keep up on how many wheels you had lol. I like what you did with the diffuser tray. i'm assuming that's not made for your car but you made it work correct?

It's the future design diffuser. It replaced the oem piece as well as adds the cf piece underneath

in the UK i get 45mpg, i charge every night, but have motorway trip of 30miles so uses the unleaded... i suppose it be better if i slowed down
i love the car but it isn't really worth it , probably 7-8mpg over a normal u/l
maybe it all adds up

Exactly. We are getting about the same mileage. 40-45 is about right , but 90mpg? That's way to good.

Very nice build OP.

Any chance you can share what was done to the exhaust with a photo of the underside of your vehicle? I'm from Australia so I can't really visit the guy who did yours so I just want something to have in mind when I go and see my local exhaust shop.

I plan to do the same on my 530i after seeing your clip. Sounds a lot better than some full system our there to be honest.

Yeah, sorry you guys are right, its really more like 38-40mpg average on a tank. The app was telling me 90 mpg, not sure why lol.

Sorry, I never took any pics. But its basically just a muffler delete to a Y pipe, nothing too complicated. Should be easily replicated
