    Advice needed re my loud exhaust 2007 116I Se

    Hello. Thank you in advance.

    My daughter purchased at 2007 116I Se. I work out of the country and she bought it whilst i was away otherwise i would have gone with her.

    She was told by the private seller that it had a sports exhaust system put on it. it is really loud i mean really loud. sounds ok if you are 18 years old boy racer etc but does not sound like a performance car. there is no back box near to the tailpipes but there is a mid box.

    My question/s is/are - Should there be a back box? and if so, would this be where the cat would have been?

    He also told her it had been re-mapped but the car is really slow. Could the removal of the backbox be slowing the car down?

    Its a really nice BMW M sport lookalike but the loud exhaust lets it down.

    Hope someone can help before i go into the garage blind.

    Many Thanks

    I'd hazard a guess there should be a back box but by using the cars vin information on realoem you'll be able to confirm.
    Follow Ferrets thread for more details on how to do this See what you can learn about your car using www.realoem.com
    Regarding the remap, I'd definitely contact the seller for more information

    I think there may be some other issues underlying it, hope the slowness is not due to it being a lemon and just a bad tune, I think you should probably take it down to enda at end tuning and they should be able to figure out a thing or two? I doubt the seller would be wanting to be too helpful, but perhaps asked the right way. let us know how it goes.
