    I am installing headers in a few weeks and I plan to cut the muffler off as well... maybe the resonator too but after I see how it is with headers and muffler delete. Anyone have experience driving with headers and muffler delete? How F***ed is it really when driving in a quiet town at night or...

    I know what you're going to say, there are so many threads about droning and exhaust droning in general. I cannot find one that is just spot on helpful!!!!! I've looked through countless exhaust threads trying to find a solution to my exhaust droning. This is my first car, and i'm 18 so of...

    I recently removed my rear muffler on my 325, only to realize that the pipes that were welded in its place by my buddy wobble around excessively. I guess I should have had him weld a hanger on as well. However, that is no longer an option. So I’m curious, is there is anything I could fabricate...

    I'm considering deleting my second resonator on my 330Ci, which is otherwise completely stock. Is this a terrible idea? Will it sound raspy and unbalanced? I'm hoping for a deeper more grumbly sound but nothing too obnoxious. Anyone who's done it, what differences have you noticed? Also, this...

    I live in California and was wondering if straight pipe’in my 325i was worth it. If so does any one know a muffler shop in the OC or IE area that would be willing to.

    I have been pretty happy with my little 325i thus far, I have had no major issues or anything that really required that much effort to mend. However, I feel like my little bimmer is missing something. I am supposed to get an exhaust leak repaired this week by my welding buddy. I was gonna ask...

    Hello, I have wanted to increase the sound of my exhaust note for a while now. After going through the forum i have considered doing muffler delete. I know it drones and magna flow muffler is the best way to go. After a long thought process i have ordered a Universal Magna flow muffler which...

    Hey all, I'm about to sell my car, but some things have come up that I'm unsure about. My '04 330ci has a muffler delete and an aftermarket M3 bumper, and a friend recently offered to trade his stock bumper and exhaust with mine. Would having stock parts increase my selling value, or should I...

    Car: 2003 330ci So about a year ago I went to a shop to have my exhaust done. I had the guy remove the muffler, and just go with straight pipes. It was great because I got the sound I wanted, and there seemed to be very little drone. Only now I realize that there is drone, and a lot of it, when...

    I'm looking into the possibilities for getting the sound I want out of my e46 exhaust. Currently I'm running a Rogue dms, which, for those who don't know, eliminates the center resonator and clamps on right after the first muffler closest to the engine. (Weird setup IMO, but it is how it came)...

    Hey guys, Being new to this forum thing, I'm sure many of y'all have already answered these questions, but I'd like to open a new thread with fresh ideas. First off, I have an '04 330Ci Sport, and would like to see what y'all think about 1) K&N v. AFE cold air intakes, 2) muffler delete w/...

    So i was thinking about getting a quad exhaust like the ones in this thread: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=587095 After some searching, i was thinking about the heat factor of the pipes. You can see in the pictures in the thread that they ran their pipes really close the the gas...

    As of now I am running headers and a muffler delete (with resonators still in place) and I have to say I absolutely love the sound. Especially at high RPMs, it freakin screams. Not to mention how much quicker the car revs and how much harder it pulls in the upper range. :D The one thing I don’t...

    I got my eBay headers about a month ago and today I finally got around to putting them on. Yeah, it was a TOTAL B!tc4 and it took my brother and I about 16 hours without a lift and power tools. <-(More on that later, I made a DIY. First one for a header install on an XI) the performance...

    Hey Everyone, So i have searched through every muffler delete thread on here and have come to the conclusion that i am most definitely going to go with the delete. However I cant find tips out there to save my life! Most shops don't carry 3" exhaust tips in Federal Way Washington, I've tried to...

    OK, I have gotten dozens of pms over the last couple months regarding the muffler delete and "how does it sound...". So, I figured I would just take a few vids under different circumstances so you could get a decent representation how it sounds and hopefully, settle some of the confusion. The...
