A car model surviving production for three decades-and-counting says a lot about its quality and reliability. This is the story of the ever classic BMW 3 Series, the ‘awe car’. Whether you’ve only had your 3 Series for a year or yours is a first generation 1984 model, you can increase your pride of ownership with one simple trick: install a custom exhaust system. What the good fellows over at BMW do not tell you is that the stock exhaust system on your 3 Series can only support their pre-determined maximum power at specific rpm ranges. No matter how hard you work the engine, you cannot coerce it into releasing more power, except by replacing the stock exhaust with a custom one. What makes custom exhausts so efficient? Because they are specially designed to unleash all the passive engine power locked in the car system.

For the best quality 3 Series custom exhausts, check out CARiD, one of the leading auto performance parts dealers in the nation. CARiD has a wide variety of fully custom designed exhaust systems for all 3 Series models. Best exhaust brands to go for when you need to infuse your 3 Series with unrivalled power and torque gains are Borla, AFE, Magnaflow and Flowmaster. These give as much as 15% more horsepower and up to 10% gains in torque. An extra benefit you will get with a custom exhaust is better fuel economy. Your BMW will be able to generate more power at low rpm, meaning you do not need to accelerate every time you want more engine power. As a result, you will be able to drive longer distances than before on the same amount of fuel.

      Here's A "Tip": Exhaust Tips Are An Easy Way To Dress Up Your Tailpipe
      Performance exhaust systems give you improvements in power output, sound levels, and appearance, all in one package. But let's face it: not everyone has the spare change to buy and bolt up one of these kits. So you soldier on with what you have. And that may be a tired-looking exhaust system that is still functional. You've spent all day washing and waxing the vehicle's paint and chrome to perfection, but no degree of elbow grease will make that tailpipe look better.

      Are Headers Worth The Performance Improvement?
      Engines have often been compared to air pumps, because the engine that’s most efficient in terms of economy and power is the one that can get air in and out of its cylinders the easiest. That’s why most performance modifications like conical air filters, cold air intake systems, headers, and cat-back exhaust systems are aimed at making the intake and exhaust systems less restrictive. These parts increase the flow of air into the engine and ease the flow of exhaust gas out of the engine. Among these components, headers may be the most difficult to install. In this article, we’ll discuss what headers do, their different types, and how much performance they can add to your car.

      Are X-pipes and H-pipes Better Than Straight Pipes on Dual Exhaust Systems?
      You may be wondering why so many aftermarket performance exhaust system manufacturers are offering dual exhaust systems connected by "H-pipe" or "X-pipe" sections. After all, aren't two separate pipes, or so-called "true duals", the best for performance? The answer is no, but to understand why we have to examine how a typical internal combustion engine works.

      Power, Sound, Looks | Can I Have It All With a Cat-Back Exhaust System?
      It's an age-old question that many have asked. Will an aftermarket exhaust be worth the expense? While they definitely can be, an important question to ask yourself is do you care more about the deeper sound they’re designed to produce, or the added performance gained from being less restrictive? As car enthusiasts, we’ve become accustomed to associating the sound of a car with its exhaust. After all, doesn’t everyone have a childhood memory or two of a car and the particular sound it made?

      Americans love to have choices. Buying a dress shirt? Decide solid or stripe, short or long sleeve, cotton or poly blend, button or spread collar, regular fit, slim fit, or big & tall. How about a meal at your favorite steak house? Will it be porterhouse, T-bone, or sirloin? Cooked rare, medium-rare, or medium? With baked, mashed, or French fried potatoes? Thirsty for a fancy cup of coffee? Let's not even get started on options that let you end up with a "grande caramel macchiato with 1% low-fat milk, 2 Splendas, and an extra espresso shot".

      Direct Fit vs. Universal Mufflers
      Regardless of whether you're shopping for a simple replacement muffler that delivers original equipment (OE) sound and performance or an upgraded muffler which provides a deeper growl with increased power through freer exhaust flow, you'll see choices between "direct fit" mufflers and "universal" mufflers. In this article, we'll help you understand the differences between these two styles so you can make a more informed purchase.
