Hey guys I’m in Australia. Just took delivery of my Jun 2020 made M2 competition. Ordered the Remus gpf back through a local mechanic, but they had trouble putting it on because the angle of the pipe does not align properly. The mechanic reckon BMW has used a different mounting bracket on the latest production models and changed the angle of the piping a little bit. He organized a welder to cut the pipe and weld it back at slightly different angle, just wondering if that is the best option? Has anyone else had or heard of this issue?

My car didn’t have a gpf but according to my mechanic, the guy from Remus Australia doesn’t seem to know that, he said only some earlier production cars do not have gpf. But anyway, on the Remus Australia site it is not mentioned at all that those exhaust will fit the models with gpf only. So I’m not sure if these exhaust were never suppose to fit my car, or did BMW really change the piping a little bit.

Which exhaust, sport or race? I just installed mine last week with active autoworke mid, it was easy as everything is a directly bolt on. Maybe try adding midpipe? And it sounds awesome with the mid too

Iíve got the race one. Not sure how long itíll take for them to order an AA mid pipe in, if they can get it at all here in Australia. the car is currently just sitting in the workshop cause theyíve cut the stock exhaust and couldnít install the new one.

Does adding mid pipe cause check engine light to come on if not tuned?

Only catless downpipes will cause a CEL in cars with secondary cats.
Only EU cars have OPF filters.

Are you installing the remus kit with resonator delete pipes?
I have the remus race axelback without resonator delete pipes and it fits perfectly on my car with secondary cats. If you are using the resonator delete pipe, then try installing axelback only by clamping back the stock resonator + pipes you've cut off.

Yea I got the res delete pipes, whatís the build time of your car? so the cut pipes can be simply clamped back together and wonít have any issues?

The mechanic is taking the car to an exhaust shop to potentially get some welding done on the stock pipes so it fits the Remus. I guess Iíll see how that turns out. I guess worse case scenario if it doesnít turn out good I can still opt for a AA mid pipe to just replace that part of the stock pipe.

2019 car, built late 2018. Clamps work granted you use the right ones. Welding is always good. Your worst case scenario should be getting rid of the resonator delete pipe and getting a refund for it, its a 400 euro pipe on remus's site.
I wouldn't get the single midpipe now when the EL midpipe is coming out later this year.

Has anyone had experience with them before?

I sent them a message around 9/17, response was that their exhaust for M2C was under development.
