Chris brought in his F30 BMW 335i this past saturday to put the finishing touch on his already-modded 3er – a Cat-Back Exhaust for BMW F30 335i from GT Haus Meisterschaft that delivers maximum power and an absolutely animal exhaust note. Our team of Mod Experts has been working with Chris for a while to get this F30 looking as sharp as it does.
Have a listen to the sound in the video below, or read through the writeup below.
Here’s the GT Haus Meisterschaft catback laid out next to the stock setup. Note that there’s no muffler. The bends and welds in the Meisterschaft Exhaust are rather nicely finished despite inferior MIG welding. If you want a LOUD exhaust, look no further than the Meisterschaft setup.The stock wheels are long gone, replaced with a handsome set of HRE FF01 Tarmac Flow Form Wheels for BMW F30.
To give the F30 a tidy drop in ride height, we fitted a set of H&R Sport Springs for BMW F30 335i, which brings the car down by 1.75in up front and 1.6in in the rear for a clean looking stance.
Here’s how the Meisterschaft midpipe looked installed, you can see the bright red H&R springs poking through as well. Here’s how the cat-back exhaust looks installed – the matte black tips are a great compliment to the Tarmac powdercoat on the HRE Flow Form wheels.
After ensuring everything was tightened down, we took the car back outside to have a listen to that BRUTAL exhaust note.
While other systems might be subtle or refined, there’s no such subtlety here. Think of it like the Arrogant Bastard Ale of exhaust systems. “Oh, it’s too loud for you? Perhaps you are not sophisticated enough for this earshattering symphony of awesome.”
With a GT Haus Meisterschaft Exhaust, there’s no sneaking around – every one of your neighbors is going to know your comings and goings, but hey, at least it sounds good!
Under the hood is an Injen Intake for BMW F30 335i (N55), this CARB legal intake is good for around 10whp and 15wtq for a moderate power gain.
Complimenting the Injen Intake is an Evolution Racewerks N55 Chargepipe for BMW F30 335i, which replaces the failure prone stock chargepipe. Upgrading the chargepipe not only improves response and intake airflow, but also eliminates the potential for failure, and the ER Chargepipe also has provisions on the chargepipe for addition auxiliary fuel or water meth injection later on.
Chris is thrilled with the sound of his new exhaust and the blistering performance, but of course, there’s always room for improvement. That’s why Chris plans to order a performance tuner for his 335i to take the power to the next level, and we can’t wait to hear it.
