This F10 BMW 535i came in a few days ago to get a bit more bark courtesy of a Magnaflow Cat Back Exhaust for BMW F10 535i with a little help from Mod Expert Sean. The owner of the 535i X-drive wanted a system that would still clear despite the AWD wonkiness of an x-Drive car and would also be a pleasant-to-live-with system. That could be a tall order for anyone else, but for the Mod Experts, it was no big deal.
The factory F10 exhaust is more than a little restrictive and muffles that sweet turbo six to the point that you can hardly hear it. Magnaflow’s Touring Series Exhaust for the BMW F10 offers a great “goldilocks” volume level – it sounds authoritative and deep at idle without being obnoxious, and the volume picks up as you sink your foot into the pedal, but the tone is supple and smooth with minimal drone.
Check out how the system looks installed. This true dual exhaust utilizes separate mufflers and a streamlined exhaust flowpath for more horsepower and torque and the large dual tips give the 535i’s rear end a lot more character.
Have a listen to the system in the clip above.
With the exhaust system mounted, all we had to do was cruise out into the sun to get photos. The bright oversized polished tips really make the F10 535i exhaust stand out. Up front, the car already has a few small cosmetic modifications – like Painted Front Reflectors for BMW F10 5-series and a set of black Dual Slat Kidney Grilles for BMW F10.Here’s another look at the dual slat grilles. Then after a bit of consultation with Mod Expert Sean, the owner of this 5 decided to grab a Carbon Fiber Trunk Spoiler for BMW F10 5-Series to give the rear end a more balanced look.
We’re just getting started modding this 535i, and we’re thinking a drop and a set of wheels are next. Thanks for joining us, we hope you enjoyed the photos!
