Is that the clamp on the rhs which has come apart? Looks like it may be stressing the lhs connection of the muffler. Best to get it to Mornington BMW ASAP. Hopefully they have an immediate fix.

Its the bracket that holds the rubber mount for your exhaust hanger. Its spun round and faces the opposite direction its meant to.

You could wire it up temporarily and drive it to the dealer. Let them bolt it back up for you.

I will see where I can tie it up tomorrow.

My travels take me mostly on tram tracks. So should get it done ASAP.

The salesman is organising it to be picked up next week. I also asked for a quote in the perf exhaust =))

Damn that is disappointing.

Let us know what you got quoted on the exhaust. Would love to get one fitted.

It's not available in .au directly from BMW. For a comparatively low volume part I believe a lot of manufacturers choose not to spend the money on the approval process.

You'll have to import it or buy it from someone else who imports parts.
