Fits 2001-2005 BMW 325i and
330 (e46) including iX and Touring models. It does NOT fit convertibles and it
does NOT fit the 323i and 328 from 1999 to 2000.
What makes the DMS unique? Like all Rogue Engineering products, the DMS exhaust system is entirely
designed and developed in the US in our facility in Hohokus, NJ. By
doing the development, fitting, evaluation and testing here, you're assure a
product that not only looks and sounds great, but a product you can have
installed with confidence.
How much performance should I expect to
our testing, replacing only a muffler or even the complete exhaust system on
an E46 yields small measurable gains. Of course, these minute gains may
be depicted on a carefully constructed dyno chart. Rogue Engineering
looks at an exhaust with reality in mind, designing our exhaust to deliver
great looks and sound, with minimal issues of fit. Of course, all of
this at an affordable price would be a bonus. These are features that
the Rogue Engineering DMS deliver!
For real world exhaust performance gains,
this typically means replacing the largest restriction, the catalytic
converters, located in the factory exhaust manifolds. From there, free
flow aftermarket catalytic converters could be added downstream, after the
exhaust gas velocity had an opportunity to accelerate out of the engine,
allowing for the most LEGAL gas velocity allowable. This course of
action, however, is typically can exceed more than $3000 plus installation.
Replacing the ENTIRE factory exhaust system
(resonators and rear muffler) with larger tubing WITHOUT addressing the
largest restriction is an exercise in futility. This kind of exhaust
"upgrade" will generally cost needless additional installation
charges, fit issues (can 6 clamps on an exhaust REALLY fit like factory?), and
ultimately, drain your wallet faster than a Bugatti Veyron.
DMS Features Just because the DMS exhaust system is easy on the wallet does not mean
you are getting short changed. Features of the RE IKON E46
Full T-304 Stainless Steel construction
Mandrel bent, dual 57mm tubing (stock is
dual 50mm) eliminates center resonator, allowing for increased air flow
yielding positive performance gains.
Mill-finished pipes and muffler, mirror
polished dual 3" staggered RACE tips fits most aftermarket
bumpers (Hamann, MTech, AC Schnitzer)
Entire exhaust utilizes TIG welded
Maintains BMW factory warranty
Rogue Engineering logo tastefully welded
onto the top of the muffler
Can be clamped or welded (because factory
exhaust must be cut, professional installation recommended)
Fits BMW E46 2001-2005
325/330 including iX, wagon. Does NOT fit
convertibles. Does NOT fit '99-'00 323/328.
Rogue Engineering Development at Work By using a more conventionally shaped
muffler, we are able to spend more time fine tune the exhaust flow and sound
being emitted from the exhaust. Unlike other companies that offer
"muffler-only" solutions for E46 applications, we have found through
our research and polling, that many of these systems are simply too quiet, not
allowing enough sound to be emitted.
Although we do not produce BMW intake
systems, we recognize the popularity and their use in conjunction with an
exhaust system. The RE DMS E46 system produces a deep,
melodious tone, and compliments many popular intake systems on the market.
Have your cake and eat it, too!
