Default 325is stainless cat back interest?

Official Group Buy Thread HERE http://www.e30tech.com/forum/showthread.php?t=82769


I have a opportunity to offer a group buy on a ultra high quality cat back set up for the 325is. This is a 'feeler' thread to get a idea of serious interest.

These units are made by stromung exhaust from top quality stainless and mount in 100% factory fashion. These are the highest quality you can purchase. Many users have had them for over 5 years and not a single sign of rust, breakage, or damage of any kind. I have a E30 M3 in the shop that has a stromung cat back that sounds very nice, it has been installed for close to 5 years, again its in perfect condition as the day it was installed.

Here are a couple quick vids to get a idea of the sound.

This would be on a group buy basis. This is only a thread to gauge interest, based on interest shown, price will be determined. If you search around you will find that these cat backs do carry a premium price. These are NOT imported. Every single one is hand made from the finest materials available.

This is true craftmanship at its finest.

I can vouch for the Stromung quality and sound. Top-notch, baby!

Any idea how heavy.

Might be interested depending on price. I have a basically new OEM exhaust so I'm mainly looking for a lighter/throatier setup.

Hey Robert! Cool GB. Stromung is awesome stuff.

Do you have a weight for the e30 catback???

I'm thinking about revamping my car's exhaust system, but mainly to shed as many lbs as possible.
