I have it but I wouldn't recommend....
cuz I am planning to change my exhaust next year.....
this muffler delete sound might give you smile for first few weeks...
but after several month, you would realize it aint real sound....
its not just solid....

its not that loud.
i had it on my 328 e90 that i sold last year...

i think it sounds great... it does drone a little at high speed cruising but around town, its not really that loud. it sounds bout the same as my m3 with the bastuck exhaust (known as one of the quietest exhaust around)...

make sure they know what they are doing tho....
I paid $75 flat no tax by cash, and bought myself $50 tip
so total $125, good thing about this is big weight reduction...
its hella heavy, until I get some nice exhaust
this will be good bang for the buck.

Anyway, while searching, Vicnumb has it on his car, and also did quads.

When I was at Nozboyz, the guy there said a guy in a E90 went and did the muffler delete, and he said the guy came back a week after to put hte muffler back on because it was too noisy.
