Exhaust Cracked

My first cylinder towards the collector cracked completely off this weekend. I had a D&D muffler and some pipe so I built this in a few hours.

If you had the stock exhaust on there before, that is the norm as far as I am concerned. I finally gave up on mine after the fourth repair and crack. It was a big mistake for BMW to make that one piece. I really like the stock exhaust for looks and quiet. I've put a Remus system on since and even with the "quiet" muffler it is louder than I like.

My stock exhaust broke also. Rather than try to repair it, I replace it with a two piece Remus which is not as quiet.

I believe that there are original replacements available but the the price is above $1,600 each.
