    exhaust sounds like its blowing but its not

    as title, sounds like its towards the rear, wondering if the internals of the tail box have collapsed, it doesnt rattle if i shake it about, but has been running crap lately, just bought a full service kit and will be doing that next weekend, any one got a pic of the inside of a 328 rear box so i can see what could be going on?

    Yes, I got photo's of the inside of a 328 exhaust



    I highly doubt the insides would've collapsed though, it's very sturdy in there !

    Get someone to block the exhaust while you check the full system out for any leaks

    EDIT: Andy beat me to it

    Yeah have blocked the tail pipes, and no leaks, but when i started it up today the rear passengers door was open and it sounded exactly like the back box had a hole in it, seemed to lose the blowing sound after it got hot
