muffler delete on my e90 330i VIDEO

i did this a couple weeks ago and i absolutely love it!
I was going to buy a magnaflow exhaust but watching some videos made me realize doing this will get me a better sound for a lower price.

here a vid not a cold start, and you can hear that stupid ticking lifter in the backround

Sounds great. I can't tell you how many compliments my muffler delete gets on my 328.

I've been very happy! Enjoy!

Is there a specific method to doing the muffler delete?

If so, please explain...

1. Remove muffler
2. Mount new piping
3. Mount tips

Exactly why I went with it. You have to remove the muffler anyway for aftermarket. Why not just give the delete a try first.

I loved mine so I never even wanted to go aftermarket.

IMO that doesn't sound very good, which is typical for inline 6 motors.

I agree.

I had the opportunity to "sound-check" when I went in for a muffler delete at the shop I choose.

Hearing them (muffler deletes) on videos, it sounded decent, but in person it just sounded.. too.. unrefined. In a sense, it needed "direction" and a slight muffler to make it go from sounding like an annoying fart-can to something more exotic-esque/unique.

In the end, I went with an Elite muffler and there's a huge difference in terms of how either option went.

Best $350 I've spent thus far on my vehicle and although I know we have different motors, it's truly a pleasure to listen.

TL/DR: If you want loud, muffler delete. If you prefer a more refined while still maintaining similar loudness, you'll want to go aftermarket muffler route.

honestly its not that loud. its the perfect level and there is no drone when cruising so you never get the fart can impression. getting it done for $60, there is no better deal. to each their own i guess. if you think its worth paying an extra $300 to refine the sound go for it.

+1 maybe each car is slightly different depending on how it's done. But a muffler delete can sound great. On a 335 it is obnoxious. The N52 sounds decent with it.

Absolutely true on the 335/n52 comparison, I've gotten compliments from 335/n54 owners when they hear me start my car up of what type of exhaust I have and sound is beefy/aggressive

Drone

2008 335i > stock > muffler delete with tips > sounds amazing > DRONE @ 2200-2400rpm. If you don't know what drone is google it causes it sucks.
