E93 removal of rear bars

Hey guys just got the vanguard exhaust system installed but had to make some adjustments and sacrifices. I guess the vanguard exhaust is not suppose to fit the e93 so the dude that installed the exhaust banged in the rear center bar and removed the two cross bars that is referred to as structural integrity. What do you guys think? Ride feels a little more looser and sluggish but I guess I don't drive aggressively enough to really notice. Also I don't have any intentions of tracking my car or upgrading the suspension. Love the exhaust though

You should come back and bang that dude on the head.
He removed the X-looking cross bar?

I believe so anybody else wanna chime in? They said that they have done that to about a 1/2 dozen e93's. Drove around tonight didn't notice too big of a difference besides I don't plan on tracking the car or aggressively taking turns. Only occasionally

Since you asked: you lost chassis rigidity to make more noise BMW installs those chassis braces to make up for rigidity lost due to a fixed roof. Shouldn't be too much of a problem if you're just driving miss daisy.
