Exhaust delete aka mustang on steroids

Hi all,
The title says it all, so I decided to experiment and do a muffler delete to my 09 e93 m3, The logic behind it was if I liked it great, if I didn't then it was only $150 bucks, let me tell you, wayyyyyyyy to loud and alot of drone sound so basically deleted all 4 resonators and the muffler, 2 1/2in pipes into the factory tips, looks great, sounds amazing but way to loud, I'm bound to get a ticket real quick, also noticed a substantial loss of power, so exhaust delete is a FAIL , looks like I'm in the market for an exhaust sooner than expected

I bought my car with the muffler delete on it. I actually love it. Still looking for a muffler, but each time i get close to buying one, i think...i love the sound too much to give it up
eventually i'm sure i'll give in though

I did it on mine after 2 exhausts systems I didn't like and it's by far the best sound but I only deleted the mufflers,it's worth it if you don't car about performance loss,you can also weld in some magnapacks,you should've left the stock resonator on tho

This isn't a turbo brosef, you need back pressure and the correct exhaust pulses to keep exhaust flowing
I'm learning as I go my friend.. Lesson #1 lol

Do it! I just got Dinan muffler and test pipes. The sound is to die for. Better than akrapovic in my opinion.
