Wow, what a great thread with great looking tips!! I will say that I have seen F10 550i people sell their tips, and that could be a cheaper possible option (however, a muffler shop would defintely have to be involved).


My issue and question:
I have a 535i that is NOT a M-Sport, thus I don't have the option to change out the rear valence to the 550i (wider tip cut-outs).

That RealOEM diagram is confusing because that illustrated rear bumper does NOT belong to a 535i.

The folks with a m-sport have it easy: they buy the tip and then the m-sport diffusor from the 550i/d and that's it.

if you dont have m-sport, what you need to is cut your bumper and add part 2 with the screws (part 4) to your cutted bumper. then you attach the tips..

I think this tips are in backorder from Germany, are there any other options for the 535i?

Hi There,

Just resurrecting this thread. I actually took inspiration from this thread a few months ago and ordered the M Performance exhaust tips but they were on backorder from Germany (GetBMWParts.com) . I finally received them a few weeks ago and just got round to trying to fit these. I would appreciate if the people who were able to install these could shed some light on the following:

1) Assuming the chrome tips slot into the existing pipe (not on top of). I managed to slip inside, but it is very tight. Tip only goes in about an inch or so. Not sure I have to use a hammer/mallet to shape them further?

2) The exhaust tips stick out too much, was any cutting of the tailpipe required prior to install? I thought these were plug and play as they come with the clamps so no welding required.

For now I have put my stock black tips back on (535i Msport) until I can get a better understanding of how to install these.

Thanks!
K.

hey, I saw that you ordered the Tips from Germany, had a quick question, the part no. is 18302298448, however is this for a set? i.e both the left and right or do I need to order the left tip and right tips separately? And do they have different part numbers?

Too expensive for two exhaust tips!

Yes the part number is for a set, both left and right tips and the clamps.
Hoping to hear back from some of the posters on their install. If not I may just take it to a auto body/exhaust shop.

They connect the exhaust tip to the existing tailpipe by tightening the clamp with a provided bolt/nut, between them, so no welding required.

So I just had a local shop weld them on rather than use the clamps. Here are some pictures of how they look on mine.

wow it looks pretty nice! do you have a close up pic of the exhaust tips fitted? I have a 530i non-mpsort and I ordered the part too. It should be arriving today! I know i dont have a exhaust on the right side but a local shop which specializes in this kinda thing told me..it could be done, though the tip on the right would just be a dummy. im okay with that...what I hate is the exhaust on just the left side look...it just seems unbalanced. Will post pics after the installation.
