Does anyone have a straight piped 328i around oc?

i would really appreciate haering it, i never considered straight pipe but from what i can tell from videos it doesn't seem too crazy actually.. but i would like to hear the drone in the cabin before i pull the trigger.

so with that said, if anyone has a straight piped / muffler deleted 328i around OC i would love to met up and hear it if you're willing! in and out on me!

thanks

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

The AA sounds deep. Do you want louder?
Maybe delete the secondary cats? or headers?

Oh gotcha! I don't want to deal with emissions either, but my father knows a guy who works at a smog station so I'm going the route of buying headers and tuning it and calling it a day. I guess maybe find someone who works at a smog station that let's you pass or something?
Good luck finding your ideal setup!

I did offer one local guy to try my straight mid-pipes. Try it on and he'll pay install/uninstall price if he liked or didn't like it. For local guys I'm cool with them paying me $100 every 2 weeks or whatever. But just cut off your 2nd cats and resonator, don't add the muffler. I did that set up for 2 weeks. PLENTY loud, backfire gurgle was constant above 2k, driving around Safeway parking lot got people's attention in a good way. If I don't pass smog I'll go to ^^^ that guy's shop since he's local, since you're in socal ask FLOSS to hook you up and pass.

I got a 335 with muffler delete, but it'll definitely sound different than a 328.
