BMW E46 M3 Exhaust clamps

20130716_145350(2) 20130705_091451(2)

An increasingly more common issue we are seeing with M3’s is the heavy corrosion of the brackets between back box and rear exhaust section. As on owner (or potential owner) you may have seen this or read about this on forums.

BMW’s answer is the replacement of both back box and rear section, both costly and creating a repair bill in excess of £1000.00!
The “DIY” solution some have tried is using Peugeot clamps! Unfortunately these do not provide anywhere near a desirable solution that we would be satisfied with, looking unsightly and not creating a perfect seal.

At Elite Auto Works we have addressed this issue to help you save money and still have a high quality, factory looking solution. Guaranteed to keep your exhaust system sealed correctly and prolong its life. We remove the existing clamps and clean the joining pipe sections to how they should look.
