New BMW owner want to make it louder(without tune) please help

Hey all, just want to start of saying mad respect for BMW.
I've wanted one my entire life and I finally got a 2013 F30 335i Xdrive. I have dinan exhaust system and it is really nice sounding but I want more. I dont have crazy amounts of money but I have a few grand to work with. My question is what should I do next for the biggest results. I want my car to sound so mean, so beast, pop pop crackle psshhhhh all those noises. I've been reading these forums and it sounds like i should do I downpipe next. However I live in Nashville and emissions testing here is ass so I need to go catted. *Forgive the noobness* I don't want to tune it with JB4 or any other tune because I want this thing to last me 6-10 years. I don't push it past 3,000 rpm unless it is in between 200-240 and I get oil changes every 10k. If I get a catted downpipe will it significantly impact the sound of the car? I want to eventually add a downpipe, charge pipe(for preventative purposes), intake system, and FMIC. Would doing all that and not get a tune be worth it?

Easiest way is switch your exhaust.

Sounds like the biggest issue is you never open it up, so you can't get much exhaust noise. 3000RPM is shifting gentle all day, every day.

Just a heads up, adding a piggyback for power does put greater stresses on the engine, but unless you are tracking the car all day long, it won't experience any real reduction in life. You maybe use all that power 5% of normal street commutes if you need to drive in any sort of traffic.

Just to throw a few things out there: a DP will increase the sound and improve the tone. I love the tone with my cattless. The thing is, is even a catted can throw a code at some point. And if your putting all these mods on you really are sacrificing the true potential of your car without a tune, which in the case of a JB4 will also delete the CEL.

And another thought, you want this mean sounding car, but without an added power boost it is really not that mean....you know what I mean? With a tune, those mods and a little e85, these cars jump to a new level where the car is more powerful than 99% of the cars you will see on the road.
It sounds like you drive conservatively like me so, most likely the added power will be fine for many years.

Jgoens thanks very much man. See the thing is, I don't drive all that conservatively. As soon as I warm up I DRIVE. I'm usually always 9 over all the time, and at stop lights I get up and go. I might go around 100 once a day not bragging just total self disclosure I don't know if I'm responsible enough for it. I just feel like if I put a jb4 on I'm going to floor it one of these days and blow up. Or that over time the boost will just naturally break down the car faster. The cars plenty fast for me I just want it to sound gloriously loud. I want to move to Maui in 5 years and the fastest speed there is 55 so I digress. I just want people to hear me on the other side ofnthe highway. Not Honda fart canny you know just the ultimate machine.

Can you educate me on this. Jb4 allows you to not do all premium gas? And that's good for the car because of the tune? *Forgive the noobness*

Just get a catted downpipe. Might lose some gains but it sounds like exactly what you wanted. Noise, gain, power. Also wont smell as bad

You still use Premium fuel but mix in some E85 which is higher octane. It's kind of like e85=super premium. It has a cooling effect as well. So basically upping the octane upps the boost, but a tune such as JB4 with Flex fuel wires attached is needed.
