How about a 'remote exhaust cutout', which bypasses muffler with a flick of a switch from the cabin? I wouldn't mess with the catalytic converter (in CA at least) due to tight emission tests (smog checks).

Idea behind cutout:



Electric Exhaust Cutout:

On an E46, the cats are attached to the headers. So that won't really serve much purpose except to bypass resonators/muffler. Unless you toss on some aftermarket headers :D

bypassing the muffler and resonators is enough for me

The on/off function is nice

WOw, this is a pretty good idea. Anyone got the specs for e46 exhausts?? How would this work w/ the dual pipes of the 325/330 cars? Would it work at all or would you need two of these?

Man, they had that feature in the old old mustangs. My friend who's into muscle cars told me that when they used to drag, he would pull a lever inside and the valve comes open and you can hear that **** a mile away. And when the race is over, you just close it up so it won't be so loud. But good idea tho for the e46. haha. Be the first for the e46 guys who ever does it.

lets revive this thread, i was thinking about getting one, i know people will think that its silly to get one for a $50 m3, but sometimes i like being quiet, and sometimes i like being loud, for $200 its a lot cheaper than a mild exhaust that would be settling between the two

what do others think?
