M235i Muffler on 228i?

I want to install a stock M235i muffler on my 228i M-Sport mostly for the improved appearance. I've already acquired a stock M235i rear diffuser. Has anyone done this yet? M235i muffler inlet pipe diameter vs. the 228i? Different hanging points etc.? Any insight would be appreciated.

as the 228i is a model i'm considering, I was looking into doing this and just so happened to find someone that already did!

Sounds no different from the 328i MPE from what I can tell on Youtube, but I prefer the dual exhaust look.

You'll need the M235i rear bumper insert ($100 shipped from SunAuto), extend the two hangers on the muffler (it lines up, but you'll need to extend them so there is no tension), and an exhaust fabricator to weld and connect the muffler to the piping since it does not line up perfectly.
Took about 90 minutes to install, just find a shop that fabricates exhausts.

I believe he used a BMW performance muffler for a 328i, not a stock M235i muffler. Not sure how similar or different they might be in size or fitment.
