Yes there is but I do not have the model number notated. I *think* it's the same as the 330i.

I have not seen a MPE exhaust for a 230i. 330i, yes. Not sure if it fits but you could inquire. I love my Dinan free flow exhaust and it's a few dollars less expensive.

Where is the best place to get the Dinan exhaust? Don't some folks sell them for less than Dinan themselves do?

Ive been doing lots of reseach, any muffler section from the 235i-435i models will fit if you have the dual exhaust diffuser conversion!

And I believe the 328i m performance exhaust will cut right in as well if you donít want to swap out the rear diffuser. At least that works for the 228i anyway. Havenít really dug into this in detail though.

I have read that you can replace the 230 with the 240 exhaust but not sure I want to change out the diffuser. I guess I need to do some research on the diffuser replacement.

Do it. The aesthetics of the pipes alone are worth the diffuser swap. Did this myself and it really is transformative to the car's rear.

Not sure unless they are used. I have purchased both directly from Dinan and from an Indy performance shop I like and the prices were the same.

If your car has the M-Sport package, (which includes the proper bumper) you can upgrade to the M235-M240 M-Performance Exhaust, as long as you get the proper diffuser. There is some question however if it will work on the convertible models, which is the situation that I find myself in presently. But the Coupe will be able to do it.

Hey guys, i just received a muffler off the 335i F30 for my 2017 230i and I see that it has a sensor plug-in / valve thats built into the muffler. Will this sensor/valve work with my 230i? On the OEM 230i exhaust it has the same device/plug-in at the same location of the exhaust but I don't have a hand held device like ive seen before to operate the actual valve, but maybe the drive mode i'm in will open and or close the valve?

Sport Mode / Sport Plus will open that valve.

The connection should be compatible.
