Hi my1990 BMW 325 Cabrio can’t get down the ramp to my apartment without gouging grooves into the concrete. I am in Marbella, but anywhere between Malaga and Estapona would be good.

It may be just an adjustment of the exhaust hanger, but could also require some fettling to the pipe, or box.

Thanks

your apartment, or a shared access to an underground parking?

Hi James, thanks for your response.

The car is now tucked-up, back home in the U.K.

Back in January, I took the car to a garage I have confidence in and they said that if the exhaust was lifted, it would need a hole in the transmission tunnel. smile

The communal garage of the apartment we use is horrendous and I feel sure that any apartment / car post 2010, would not be an issue. It will be another 5-years before I take the car down to Spain again.

Post Covid, I will visit JP Exhausts to see if they have any big ideas as to how to improve the problem. They fabricated the replacement exhaust.

the reason that i asked which it was is that i drive a 2001 megane, and at the house we are renting theres a "hump" under the entrance gate. I have laid a "yellow builders board" on the floor in front of the gate - it allows the car to be 20mm higher, which is enough to lift my exaust over the "hump" smile
