How long an exhause system last depends on where you live and your driving condition. If you live where there's alot of salt, probably not very long. You should inspect your exhaust and look for leaks (holes). If you find them, then its probably time to replace. Supposedly BMW OE exhaust were made by Eberspacher. If you check one of the vendors recommended by people here (e.g., BMA, alloembmwparts.com, vertex, or even ultimategarage.com to name a few) you'll find some competitive prices. Alternatively, if you're a BMWCCA member your local dealer may give you a good discount and well, its hard to beat OE, especially with the one year, unlimited mileage warranty.
