Muffler Delete Questions

I have done my research and I have seen some vids on youtube BUT i need some help here, people that have done it I only have one question did you like the sound and will the pipes rattle?

-For those of you who do not like to do that mod DO NOT talk shit or ask why I want to make it loud ive done it on my benz and my audi (well the audi had a straight pipe custom exhaust) and it sounded good!

Cutting stock muffler = no good. But it will be louder.

Go to the NA tuning section. The 335 and 328 sound very different w/o mufflers.

yeah, I was planning to go this route too. I personally think it sounds really good and it is loud. There is drone but it is bearable. Actually I like the drone because it makes the car seem louder in the inside rofl. But anyways do it.

It drones way too much, on a long drive it will give you a headache.

but for a cheap starter mod, go for it. You can always step up to something better once the MD wears on you for a bit

330i

I did it on my 330i. Went straight pipe with dual tip. Muffler weighs like 50 pounds (sitting in my backyard) . I like the sound as do my friends and anyone who stops and ask me what I modified, Which was just the exhaust. In tunnels is the best LOUD

Thoooo

I wouldn't recommend it on a 335 . Different engine for the turbos. Sounds wackk unless you flash your ecu and get rid of the silencer hose trying to suck air making it sound like your peeling out .

thank you for all the feedback I am definitely going to do it, BUT do i have to delete the resonator and replace it with an xpipe or straight pipe? or I can just delete the mufflers and be done with it?

don't delete the resonator. it will be too loud and raspy.
