Stainless Steel Downpipe
Built for performance, economy and longevity!
Performance - You will enjoy reduced turbo lag and a noticeable performance difference throughout the entire rev range. The original downpipe exits the turbo with an immediate restriction. The DPF is designed to collect the particulate matter (soot) in the exhaust and then at extreme temperatures using late fuel injection, burn the deposits off into ash. This poses a restriction in the exhaust system and by design induces excessive temperatures in excess of 700°C which have a direct effect on your turbocharger and intake temperatures. Removal of this filter will result in an excellent improvement in fuel economy and when coupled with the performance software, the new behaviour of the vehicle is remarkable. Turbo life will be extended and turbo lag will be substantially reduced.
Economy - You will experience a 3-5 MPG improvement over the original DPF depending on your driving style and software selection.
Longevity - Your upgraded downpipe is over-engineered in 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel and the flexible coupling in 304 Grade Stainless Steel, flanges are laser cut for a perfect fit and finish, your new downpipe should outlast the life of your vehicle. You should also expect extended turbo life as a result of reduced turbo temperatures.
How does it fit? - This downpipe was carefully developed using the Genuine BMW factory item as a template and tested on the vehicle, improvements were made to flow where possible. Every downpipe is hand made using a jig ensuring a perfect fit every time.
Noise - There is no noticeable difference to the sound of the exhaust on mild to medium throttle levels. At full throttle the whistle of the turbo is more audible.
Quality - Our exhaust components are built with over 20 years experience in all kinds of fabrication and welding you can be assured that the quality of your new performance downpipe will be second to none!
Guarantee - A lifetime guarantee is offered on the pipework and as the uprated stainless steel coupling is a flexible part, we offer a two year warranty on the flexi section.

The programming process is carried out using the touch screen colour display with clear step by step on-screen instructions. The built in diagnostic fault code reader allows you to read and self-diagnose faults then erase the codes once repair has been carried out, switching out engine management light and perhaps saving a trip to the dealer.
