I also think you are being too hard on yourself, because YOU did the work. If you look at ANY other car on the road..... and look closely..... you'll notice that NONE of them are absolutely, 100% symmetrical.... not one.

You notice "yours"... because you did it. No one else will notice anything, I promise.

I consider this thread a HUGE success. Thanks for chiming in, providing your experiences, and sharing pictures. I'm crazy-stoked about doing the same thing.
Glad I could help
FYI, the stock pipes are not parallel to eachother height wise, so when you start adjusting, don't be surprised if they are not the same height.

LOL.... gotta "get" the car first..... which is proving to be it's own challenge. But, whenever it does decide to arrive, I'll be ready with all the parts I will have stockpiled up to that point.

Thank you Tim. I purchased the pipe from the link you sent, they will be delivered on this Friday. Will show the pic once installed. IMO not bad giving a try while im waiting for M perf Exhaust system.

Thanks again.

Does the M performance exhaust come with tips?
The M50i is standard with that exhaust and we wonít get tips, thatís why I ask.

I believe it will come with the set including m perf tips which will have carbon fiber finished. But now for G05 itís not release yet. I talked to the guy at getbmwparts and he said the parts can see on inventory but not available for sales which mean it will come out eventually like G05 M performance brake now available.

Mine is 2019 50i come with M exhaust too but not sure if it them same as M50i. I think for the M Perf exhaust the sound will be more agressive like they did in F15 version. You can find the link in youtube, the sound in totally different.

That sounds really good. Admittedly, I've found that I appreciate the ability to be "dead silent" at times though, so I'm hesitant about ordering an exhaust that eliminates my ability to do that.

The tips however, just give it a bit more aggressive "appearance" which was really all I'm looking for.

just an update, ended up loosing one tip on the highway so I just took them out and called it a day.
Not sure if its the vibration loosing them up or once they get hot they expand and then shrink and fall off

Thanks for the heads up. After the first few drives, I will re-check them to make sure they are still tight. Or... I'll just have them welded.
