After spending 3-4 hours cutting the exhaust pipe to fit the new Supersprint muffler, I now have to cut the pipe 2 inches more! So i think I'll try an exhaust cutter (chain) this time. Anyone know where to get one? I saw SEARS sells KD Tools exhaust cutter, but out of stock around here.

Man that Hartge exhaust tip looks redicilous right now, sticking way too far out, and not even level. Hope some adjustments will make it better. Need another hanger that my OEM muffler didn't use, but I see the older E39's has. Realoem listed the part but also had a see TIS 001796(165). Hope I can still get that part from BMW.

Not much sound improvement. But it's only the muffler I'm replacing so..

I used a small hacksaw (puh!), which was so tiresome. And I can only lift my car to jackstands.

Got an exhaust cutter yesterday at Advance, but the stainless steel exhaust is stronger than the cutting wheels. Maybe if I force the matter it will help. I'll see tonight.
