N55 catless downpipe w/ muffler delete

Over Christmas I went catless on my 2011 335i and then a couple days ago I got 4 inch exhaust tips put on my car and got a muffler delete all for $60. To any of you thinking about doing catless downpipe with muffler delete it is for sure loud but definitely not to where you can't stand it. Drone isn't really that bad at all to be completely honest. Sound wise my girlfriend has a 2018 mustang GT fully straight piped with cats and it's loud as hell her cold start is 118.0 decibels standing 2-3ft behind the exhaust. On my fully straight piped N55 standing 2-3ft behind my car with a decibel reader my car is 119.3 decibels. Just a little feed back to any of you thinking about going fully straight piped. If you guys have any questions please feel free to ask!

Roads in Texas have been super wet from rain. I haven't even gone over 50% throttle yet because it's like a slip and slide haha but I'll definitely do flybys

Can you get a reading at WOT from 50'?? Curious if it's over 97dba @ 50' (3-4 feet high). That's a limit for many clubs and tracks. I've been thinking about lobbing off the muffler. It's only like 10lb weight loss though so if it's crazy loud then not worth it.

It's an E92. I'm going to have burbles soon after I fix a valve cover leak I have I'll tune in MHD with burbles and then post a video on how it sounds
