Yeah, I want to flip this predicament into an opportunity to get my beloved X5 sounding better. I'm interested in the hjs cats and PM'ed bmw540san.

Yes, I got your PM.
Do you or anyone else know the tubing ID?
Several HJS cat models may fit as they are designed to fit multiple ID's but if I know the correct ID I can point you out toward particular HJS part # and you may not have to cut any material.

Here is my latest build with HJS cats:

Adding my sympathies. A friend's son had his stolen off his Chevy truck last spring near Houston. No fun at all!

I've spent some time on the Bellevue campus. Met some great people there.

RockAuto has a "Premium BRE" converter listed for $640 CDN and I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on it. Anybody have experience with those ??

That violated feeling is terrible, sorry. Won't insurance cover some of the cost? No cameras in the area you could check?

Yeah, I meant to ask the same thing.
Of course it depends on type of coverage but shouldn't the theft or vandalism be under comprehensive coverage ?
I imagine this qualifies under one of them.
