Exhaust Problem/Drone

Hello everyone, I recently purchased an 09 M3 Coupe and love it, came from a Z4M Roadster while I do miss the roadster the M3 is amazing.

My problem is the previous owner modified the exhaust with a Magnaflow system, I think this is the one here

while the exhaust is not the problem I'm pretty sure the resonators have been removed and straight piped. I have a terrible drone noise around 2-3k rpms which is around the town driving.

I want to put some new resonators back on the car if that is the best thing to do. My goal is to get rid of the drone, the exhaust noise is great but dont mind if it is toned down a little.

What are the best resonators I can use to get rid of the drone. Is there anything else I should do or look for? I'm up for any suggestions, I'm not a mechanic but know of a place I can take to get the work done but would like to have some knowledge of what I need doing before i go there.

thanks for any suggestions

here is a picture of my new baby, its the white one

i suggest to get the magnaflow resonator... it has a very quite tone to it and it will tame it down a bit... but the magnaflow does drone and to be honest its not that bad.
