does vibrant resonators reduce a lot of my exhaust loudness?

i read a thread in this forum and said the vibrant resonators couldnt reduce drone. Im running catless DP , no resonator. does vibrant resonator reduce more drone then the stock resonator? also will the vibrant resonator reduce a lot of my exhaust loudness?

The 335i coupe doesn't have a resonator but an x-pipe, only the sedan has one. So you can surely benefit from a resonator to if not eliminate at least reduce drone. You have nothing to lose anyway...they are cheap

i was under the impression that the sedans had no resonators, but the coupes do. well, i guess that's what i get for never looking under my car!

i'll be purchasing these vibrant resonators in this case

i know it reduces the drone but im really happy with my exhaust note now. I afraid that after adding the vibrant resonator, the loudness will be reduced a lot

I'm in the same boat as you, same exhaust/dp combo.

You could always look under your car, haha. Yes, sedans have resonators because usually people who buy sedans are loosers who don't want some nice noise. Although, I must admit, my resonator makes a muffler delete sound SOOOOOOO good.
