WTT: OEM exhaust mod for Megan exhaust, or stock muffler + cash (Greenville, SC)

I'm toying with the idea of going with primary cats delete. I currently have the OEM exhaust mod (bypass aka louder version) and feel it'll be way too loud with TP's.

Wanting to see if anyone wanted to go a bit louder and trade their Megan exhaust (for E92 only please). Or stock muffler + cash. I'm located in Greenville SC.

What kind of cash are you looking for with the stock set?

There was a thread some time back on test pipes and sound. Some guy actually measured the sound of his exhaust before and after test pipes. The sound level went up some but not much. My personal impression is with test pipes the sound is a little louder and raspier under hard acceleration but not really different when just cruising around town. Good luck !

I'd be looking for $300. Let me know if we can maybe work out a deal.

Thanks for the reply! That's actually really good to know. I've only seen one video of an OEM bypass mod with TP's, and it barely sounded like a V8. It was so raspy. I might just try it for the heck of it, but doubt I'll be able to live with it.
