I agree with the issue of nasty odor, but I wouldn't change a thing. My wife on the other hand would throw my CATS back on in a heartbeat.

This issue I can't get my arms around. I'm wondering how bad it could be compared to my old Chev pickup truck that is running headers and a couple of glass-pack mufflers (they didn't make catalytic converters back then!). Sure, there is an exhaust smell...but I don't think it's that big of a deal. Do the M's smell that much different w/cats removed?

This is first car I don't have cats. So it's new experience. But my cousin's catlesss Evo IV MR isn't this bad. I never smelled (or plan to smell) chevy truck anytime soon so I can't compare.
