M135i exhaust comparo put together by 1ADDICTS members, comparing the factory exhaust, BMW M Performance exhaust, and Bastuck exhaust.
We had a chance this week to drive a group of F30 335i equipped with the full complement of BMW M Performance Parts. On the performance side, these cars featured M Performance Power Kit (PPK), suspension kit, brakes and exhaust. Cosmetic enhancements include the M Performance front lip spoiler/splitters, sport stripes, carbon fiber mirror caps, black kidney grilles, side-sill decals, 20″ wheels (Style 405M), carbon fiber/alcantara interior and carbon fiber shift lever.

It will come in two versions – one with titanium steel tips (as pictured below) and a carbon fiber tip version. The titanium tips feature an M engraving and we imagine the carbon fiber may also feature some graphic or emblem.
