    Good day everyone,

    I had my car on a ramp yesterday and it has no heat shields around the exhaust. Please can somebody tell me which ones I need because I got told just the one near the front axle and next to the gas tank I need?
    If so please can someone send me a part number an or picture.
    Thank you in advance

    You can look in an online ETK and just search for your model car. No need for a specific VIN.

    From memory it’s one big long one from by the gearbox mount all the way to just in front of the rear diff. The handbrake cables pass through a couple of hangers which support the rear of the heat shield.

    there’s another over the rear silencer

    and one attached to the exhaust itself where it passes close to the cv / driveshaft.

    have a look at the vid on this page to see where they go / what might be missing from yours

    Look around for a second hand one. I think for the M3, all 6 cylinder long heat shields are the same.

    I was very lucky to get an immaculate second hand one from a 328i and then polished it up. Came up an absolute treat.

    I ended up buying one from BMW £68 all in. There were no second hand ones around that i could find and £68 to stop my fuel tank melting, well..

    There are all the other ones available second hand.

    Yeah its good when you get a good deal on a quality part.

    Totally agree with that! Hmm that’s cheap.

    I just lucked out and bought a whole heap of good parts off an immaculate wreck...

    Please see the part codes for the four heat shields that run around the exhaust from the engine to the rear box.

    £68 is surprisingly reasonable. I could probably do with one. From memory mine have done the usual and the holes where they are attached have corroded away and look a bit scruffy.

    This is just for the one next to the fuel tank. Not the big one down the center of the car.
