How much does a 3inch exhaust cost

How much would a shop charge or you would pay for a full 3inch stainless steel exhuast from the downpipes all the way to the mufflers with an x-pipe all mandrel bent??

every shop is going to be different depending on how the tech can accomplish it. i'm guessing anywhere parts and labor from $300+...maybe? i've seen guys get charged $100-150 just to do muffler deletes

Just depends. I paid 350 for a 3in exhaust which included a custom 3 in downpipe on a diffrent type of car. Expect to pay the bmw tax. I would guess between 5 to 800.

No pictures of the mufflers or tips? What brand? I would PM FenixMike as he's like our resident exhaust guy here on the forums. Here's a link of what he did as he didn't go with 3" but gives you an idea. Maybe he'll chime in

Keep in mind, the engine needs some back pressure to produce maximum HP. If you get a full 3in exhaust with no supporting mods (tune, intake, DP, and possibly turbo upgrade) you may actually end up losing HP.
