Yeah I have the 4" oval also and it fits nice. as for the fit, all we did was hold up the BB underneath the stock, draw a cutting line, cut and slide the bb right over the stock pipe, then we tightened the clamp (supplied by BB). No welding was done on mine and BB actually said it wasn't a weld on exhaust. Not that welding would hurt it or anything just stainless steel is more complicated to weld:)

: Actually there's only one version...although you have a choice between two or one exhaust tip...mine was $550.00 and $50.00
: for installation. My question to idBerto is that
: you said perfect fit? The muffler shop had to cut
: part of the tri flo exhaust to make it fit then weld increase in power...'wish it's a little bit louder, otherwise i'm satisfied. I got
: the 4" oval tip..looks awesome. Vrooom.....

: : Which BBTriflo did you install? There are two versions, the quiet and a louder one I think?

: : Where did you buy it? Cost? Installation? Got a pic possibly?

: : Thanks.

: : : I must say I am content. The sound is nothing of that of the e36 (annoying,loud), instead it gives it an M3ness that is nice and smooth. Between 1500 & 2200 rpms there is a nice hum which is pleasant to the ear. As far as performance, well we all know that you really don't feel anything on such a mod...I would say if anything I feel a bit of a pep when accelerating. The installation was simple, perfect fit..even my mechanic was impressed. I think once I have installed a 9" cone filter that I will be happy with the sound of the 6. (of course, it will never sound like a car on the european market)
: : : anyway, just wanted to let any interested parties know.

: : : Thanks
: : : ibBERTO & my thoughts
