Quad exhaust booked!

Hi, Cars not even due for 4 weeks but i have it booked in for a quad exhaust fit.

My question is has anyone ever heard or worked with longlife and any endorcements?

It seems a lot cheaper than i thought at everything from the cat back 300

One thing they won't confirm is if they will cut the sport defuser simpley because they have never seen one

Interesting, but I wonder why they have to replace everything from the cat back. You'd think they'd be able to do it from the rear boxes, which would make it a lot cheaper.
I've asked them for a quote for my forthcoming 535d M Sport; I'll let you know if it's different to yours.
As to the rear diffuser, it will definitely require cutting, but it should be an easy job.

What is the purpose of a quad exhaust?

535 has the exit on either side so less needs replacing
