Has anyone removed aftermarket X-Pipe & gone back to stock?

Intake and exhaust are installed and I am deciding on my next mod. It's either going to be a Tune or X-Pipe.

The tune will either be Dinan, ESS or Evolve.

I love the sound of the Dinan rear mufflers. Sometimes I wish that it had a bit more sound and I'm now looking at an X-Pipe. I'm looking at the Challenge Street or Fabspeed pipe with secondary cat delete. Since I need to cut the stock mid-pipe I want to make sure this is the route that I want to go.



I would love to delete my primary cats but don't want to deal with emissions.

Has anyone ever installed one and later on removed it for the following
reasons:

1. Too loud for daily driving- wife or kids hate it.
2. Fitment issues/rattles
3. Too much attention with police
4. Drone became too much/pissed off neighbors.
5. Takes away from the class of an M3

I've pm'ed a few people but would like to get more responses on this one.

Since the stock midpipe needs to be cut, I could also just go to a muffler shop and have them remove the secondary cats and weld straight pipe in it's place to save some cash. I know I'm not going to gain a ton a power, I'm primarily look for a tad more sound/rasp.
