does anyone have a straight pipe setup?

i see a lot of threads about xpipes, and people leaving on the primary cats, but has anyone done straight piping, meaning 4 cat + resonators delete?
how does above sound? how's sound, pros and cons of this setup?
i know about CEL, but just wondering what other things i may expect that i'm not aware of? i know of not passing emissions without the primary cats, but since it's a brand new car, i won't need to worry about smogging for 6 years so that should be ok..
thanks!

that's my defense

If they do, they're probably deaf by now

I have no cats or res with the RPI and its pretty fine, just added in with the Remus Race its a little way too loud.
There is a big power gain there and the sound is very very loud
If you don't like the BMW signature rasp than don't do it, because it is there and wants you to know its there. But I like it

I'm running Eisenmann Race + secondary cat delete + resonator delete. It's VERY loud. I like it much better than the ER w/ stock mids, sounds quite aggressive and demonic.

Catless is def. loud. Power gains are good regardless of which catless design u go with but some do add more ponies then others.
