Resonated SS Exhaust Tips or just plain SS Tips on a 335xi N54

Folks,

Want to get your opinion on this. I will be installing my AR Design downpipes this coming spring and will be (maybe) deleting the 2 resonators and definitely the catalytic converter but will be leaving the stock muffler intact, but replacing with a 3.5 inch Resonated SS exhaust tips or a 4 incher SS regular tips.

I appreciate any comments especially from those of you who have done these kind of things or those who are knowledgeable.

I have no idea what these are. Probably because I dont drive a turbo car and don't look much in those sections.

I think it's one of those new things they are talking about in Colorado and Washington. You know, they get high with them or something.

These are sort of equivalent to Headers.

The downpipes add significant power and virtually eliminate turbo lag, making the fabled N54 engine even more responsive!

Google it. AR Design, AFE, and other performance companies makes them.

OH, well then in that case you should post this in the turbo car section to get answers to your questions

Sorry guys,

I didn't see the Non-Turbo on the section. But I was more after the sound on the resonated Tips vs the plain tips, vs the turbo application of it.
