well usually x-pipes will include resonators or cats and also will be offered with out. The X-pipes offered with out are considered straight pipes.

You would need the X-pipe. It will probably stop some of that rasp you'd hear with just a straight pipe, and it should bring you better performance, since your M3 is an NA vehicle. We sell the Supersprint X-pipes all the time, so Supersprint is something you might want to consider--they're definitely top-of-the-line exhaust company.
