Eisenmann back box fitment

Recommended Posts

Hey gang,

Does anyone know for sure if an Eisenmann back box from a 330 coupe would bolt straight on to my 330 convertible?

Thanks

Bob :)

The one I had just stipulated engine size, it had 330d/cd stamped on it which would cover all the body types so I'd say so. Eisenmann UK are very helpful so might be worth emailing them?

You've seen Rickys ad :D

I hadn't at the time, but he sent me a message earlier as I had expressed an interest a while back :)

Check realoem to see if the standard exhaust shares the same part no, IIRC it's the same bar 1 hanger, but will fit

If the fitment's the same as mine was then the join is after the rear axle anyway (IIRC) so should be fine.

Do it Bob.

Hmmm, just received this back from Eisenmann :(

Dear Bob ..no I am sorry they are different, as the convertible has different back pipes to allow for the underchassis reinforcement bars.

If it helps you, we will offer 15% discount on a new Eisenmann here ?

Very best regards

Roy

Please let us know if we can help further.

Hi,

Could you please tell me if an Eisenmann back box from a BMW E46 330ci coupe is the same fitment as a BMW E46 330ci convertible?

Many thanks

Bob

Might work out cheaper having it fettled by an exhaust place? It's not cheap though at £350 especially if you need to have it modded too.

I'm sure Bekir (El Turko) had one on his 330ci convertible? Might be worth asking him what it came off.

I'm really suprised at Eisenmann's response. Mine came off a coupe (I had a vert). I then sold it to a member on here (Chris) who had it on his 330 clubsport. He then sold it to another member on here (FabBMW) who fitted it to his 330 vert. So it is definitely interchangeable.

The place that fitted it it, mentioned that it was bit of an arse to fit due to the reinforcement bars. But in no way did it obstruct them, nor did they have to modify anything.

An incredible exhaust, and definitely worth the money IMO. They hardly depreciate either.

A few pictures to tempt you, and because I love being a photowhore:

They also look brilliant after a full polish.

B0B I have some sound clips of my old one on my photobucket, if you are going to pursue it further, let me know and I can email them over.

Ricky: If you don't mind me saying, you should definitely polish yours and put up some new pics, for the sake of an hour and some wire wool & metal polish, it'll look like it's worth the money.

Thanks Das I'd appreciate that, did you just gave the back box or did you remove the resonator and or secondary cats?

I've done a deal with Ricky now so I'll be picking it up at the weekend :)

Your Eisenmann guy wasn't that good :D

If sedan, touring, coupe or convertible the back box has always the same partnumber ;)

Yeah okay, I see it. He wanted to sell you a new one ;)

Picked it up today and it probably did take an hour with some metal polish and wire wool :)

Really want one of these for my 330cd but seem like hens teeth and £500 for a backbox will just hurt too much haha
