For over four decades, Active Autowerke has remained at the forefront of engineering high-quality BMW performance products, earning a reputation as a true leader in the industry. With an unwavering commitment to enhancing performance through top-tier offerings, Active Autowerke is synonymous with the pursuit of power. Our steadfast philosophy revolves around crafting refined BMW performance parts that prioritize performance, all while catering to the expansive BMW community. This ethos is epitomized by our exceptional F80 M3 and F82 Mid Pipe, an invaluable addition to our esteemed F8X BMW collection.

The Active Autowerke F8X Mid Pipe is purposefully engineered to eradicate the inherent restrictions found in the OEM F80 M3 and F82 M4 mid pipes, resulting in optimized exhaust flow and a remarkable boost in performance. In our quest to address the irksome sound often likened to that of a weed eater, we embarked on a journey of comprehensive research and rigorous testing to fully comprehend the issue at hand. Through our tireless efforts, we identified the synchronization of the turbos as the primary contributor to this unwanted sound. Our solution came in the form of a single mid-pipe meticulously designed to eliminate a significant portion of the bothersome noise. Furthermore, we confronted the challenge of accommodating a substantial 3.5" pipe, crucial for achieving optimal performance, without compromising ground clearance. Thus, our ingenious oval pipe design was born. Engineered with precise fitment for both the F80 M3 and F82 M4, the transformative power unleashed by this mid-pipe will be palpable from the moment of installation!

Exciting news! The Active Autowerke F8X Mid Pipe is now available with resonated connecting pipes, further enhancing the already exceptional experience. Elevate your BMW's performance to unprecedented levels and revel in the symphony of power and precision.

BMW has thoughtfully incorporated two silencers within the middle and rear sections of the factory F8X exhaust system to effectively reduce noise levels. While the internal crossover within the middle silencer aids in mitigating the drone, it, unfortunately, poses restrictions and amplifies the uneven, out-of-sync turbocharger sound that has been a subject of concern for many owners.

Delving into an in-depth analysis of the F8X exhaust system, we arrived at a resolute decision that we could achieve remarkable results through a more refined approach. Consequently, our dedicated focus on enhancing the performance of the F80 M3 and F82 M4 led us to prioritize the highly restrictive mid-pipe. Through meticulous design, we have accomplished a remarkable feat—significantly increasing exhaust flow while virtually eradicating the bothersome "dueling 3-cylinders" sound.

Unleash the true potential of your BMW with our meticulously crafted F80 M3 and F82 M4 exhaust. Experience the exhilaration of enhanced exhaust flow, seamlessly synchronized with the symphony of power and precision, transforming your driving experience into an extraordinary journey.


To extract the utmost performance gains, we have employed a set of exclusive techniques in crafting our F8X Mid Pipe. While many of our competitors have explored similar approaches, we set out to create a truly exceptional product that surpasses all expectations.

Diverging from the design of both the factory mid-pipe and those of our rivals, we opted for a singular pipe configuration. This decision was driven by several compelling factors.

First and foremost, our aim was to eliminate the unpleasant "weed eater" sound that has been a common source of dissatisfaction. Our innovative design not only eradicates this undesirable characteristic, but it also bestows a resounding, harmonious tone that befits the distinguished heritage of BMW's ///M Division. In addition, the enhanced flow resulting from this refined construction yields an astonishing surge in power. Furthermore, the elimination of the extra pipe contributes to significant weight savings, a vital aspect that directly translates into improved overall performance.

Elevate your driving experience to unprecedented heights with our exceptional F8X Mid Pipe. Witness the convergence of engineering excellence and the art of sound as your BMW M-series vehicle exudes a captivating symphony of power while redefining the very essence of performance.
