Which one is better?

Recommended Posts

I’m looking for new exhaust system to my ‘90 525i M50. Found 2 choices of secondhand. The sellers claim their goods are the best. I cannot judge which one is better? 
 

A - the seller claim it was taken out from only-35,000 km. car. But it has all black paint coat which I’m not sure if it’s factory paint and a few rust. 
 

B - it is the one in a red circle. No rust at all but don’t coated in black. Don’t know if it was cleaned the black coating or not. 
 

Please suggest which one should I buy.

they looks both OEM to me 

 

~The one on the right has a join in it so the back although original looking looks to be a replacement at some point

 

I'd take either

They both look pretty good. Pick them up and shake them. The one that sounds least like a pair of maracas is the best.

They both look like OE Eberspaecher (BMW OE) systems. If they are cheap enough, buy both. Aftermarket systems are being discontinued and BMW are just taking the piss on parts prices. That's probably £1000 worth with VAT.....per system.
