Getting a Straight Pipe / cat reso delete

Hello Everyone!
Im currently thinking of getting a new exhaust and from the looks of it, I think im going for the Amuse Ericsson Ti exhaust. However though, Im still thinking if I should get the half system with customized pipes or get the full system instead. Now here comes my question, im new to modding and my friend told me that getting straight pipes on the E92 would cause it to "Check Engine" and making it unable to run. Has anyone had straight pipes on their M3? and, How do you deal with the O2 sensor?

You can get software to shut down the CEL. If you do go straight pipe without software, you will have a CEL.

Pare, there is software that can bypass the O2 sensor, if you run a straight pipe. With the Ericsson exhaust and the straight, your M will be very loud. Maybe too loud for my taste. But to each his own.

You will only have a CEL if you mess with the primary cats, but you can straight pipe the rest (resonators, sec. cats, muffler) and you won't have a cel
