Anybody with N26 328i Straight Piped?

I'm curious how this would sound, and if it would sound nice or too ricey.
On an N26 328i with straight pipes with cats because I don't want the smell.

too ricey in my opinion ... Just get yourself a decent exhaust instead.
My pick would be Active Autowerke or REMUS

I have a catless dp and a muffler delete and I think anymore than that would kill it.

Do have a tune. Could always do a resonator delete. Car already drones a lot. After the down pipe I'm starting to get rattles around the console area. Making me regret it

It's from the muffler delete. I have the same catless ER downpipe and no rattling or drone. You need get rid of the cats in the DP in order to run higher boost, so no regrets there

Might be. Had the muffler delete before the downpipe. Thinking of getting an exhaust system again but I like the loudness of the car now . Not sure what to do

It must depend on the specific exhaust setup, it made a pretty big difference for me and if you listen to videos for setups that optionally come with a high flow midpipe (Dinan/AWE and probably some others), the high flow midpipes definitely sound better and a bit louder.

My bet would be on the AA exhaust with Midpipe delete and Cat Delete. Sounds nice and throaty with a good note from the exhaust. Also the MPE with the above mods sounds really good as well as it has that M car rasp when you get into higher RPM.

MPE catless:


AA Catless:
