It's just I would like it louder. By straight pipe I still meant having the resonators in the line.

My buddy has a 328i I think it's straight pipe and I've never heard a car sound this good. It's crazy how good it sounds I can't believe it.

I don't notice any smell when I'm driving, but it was noticeable after I parked. No drone on the highway which was nice.

The knock sensor issue is advancing my timing and causing my AFRs to run a tad rich (~13.5), so I need to get that sorted out. Probably not helping the smell.
Yeah I get what you mean. It doesn't bother me as much since it sounds more E46 M3 rasp than rice rasp now IMO. Like it's still a high note but not ear piercing you know.

Posting here since maybe it's a IS issue... ppl with rear diffusers does it fit wrong/with a gap or is it probably just my diffuser quality the problem?

Most of the time carbon parts have to be "adjusted" to make them fit good.

Who is the manufacturer?

It's en ebay one lol. They offering me 50$ back. I think I might make a hole in the tabs and then pass a zip tie to pull it in.

When you say have to be adjusted is it sanding/grinding it off or?

I would say whatever it takes to make it fit, be sanding, grinding, or flexing.

For my Arkym front lip, I had to push really hard to flex it into place and drive screws through it.
