So short answer, there’s no performance benefit to equal length exhausts on a turbo engine.
This makes sense. Appreciate response.

I'm surprised to see the primary catalysts so far from the manifolds, any thoughts?

This is the X3/4M exhaust

Knows someone if in EU you can fit the US cat-version on the car? So than you would have an original bmw part without opf 😂 i hope it fits 😁

For sure you can use the US version instead of EU . The main problem ( ( forgetting the cost of O.E. BMW ) is the DME for US same as EU ?

This is the problem.
It's way cheaper an aftermarket exhaust.

I think that would not be a problem as you can code everything. The price would be for sure high but at the end you have a original bmw part if you get in a controll (in switzerland they really suck at the moment)

You can do everything if you decide to code . Your original question was to add the US version on EU was to be able to have a better sound without modify the DME . To do this it can be mandatory a DME tunes , so , is more cheap an aftermarket exhaust .
Regarding CH rules if you don't overdo it with the noise the will be no problem just keep the rear muffler stock . This what I do with my X4MC

If you remove the OPFs you won't match EU/CH emissions rules even if you keep the stock muffler.

Yes , you are right !
Same CAT - DME Tuning - Lower spring ( If is not omologate ) ecc ecc

Any modification even if approved by the EU / CH rules but not approved by BMW will it could cause you problems( if the car is leased even worse ) so to avoid any legal / warranty issue keep the car on stock .

damned OPF.......

Americans, you guys are so lucky!

correction: guys....I don't know if you already knew this....but I've just spoken with one of my friend in Munich (that works in BMW off course) and he told me that also the US spec cars will be equipped with the OPF, as other producers (Ferrari, for example) are already doing.
