I think the smell is subjective. I personally like the smell while others hate it and find it to take the class away from the car. If you don't want to put up with the smell, the go with hfc's......less gains, but nowhere near the smell.

If i'm not mistaken I saw your e92 driving down sunset and hilgard today (Was that you?; I was in the silver cayman). If that was you, it's definitely loud setup, but a dp and muffler delete isn't my cup of tea in terms of sound. Driving around you, I wouldn't say the smell was bad at all......many other platforms that are catless are much worse than these cars in terms of smell.
