Did you end up removing the secondary cats? Another member said you can give some insight into how it was done (the pipe going into the secondary cat is kind of flattened and an exhaust shop i went to said it can't be done).

My exhaust shop does wonders, they made it fit with the least airflow restrictions. The light gray is just anti rust coating for the welds.

Same, the sound deadening material in the BMW does a real good job keeping that drone out. I hardly hear mine with the radio on at a reasonable level. If anything, the only exhaust mod will be a catted downpipe. second cat and resonator will stay in there. I couldn't be any happier with the $$ I paid for a simple mod.
How much did you spend on the delete?

***UPDATED WITH NEW VIDEO*** 2.22.18
Running a custom tune now and gives the exhaust note slightly changed. Car rev's were in Comfort and Sport Modes. You can hear some cracks at 0:15-0:20. This is not a burble tune.

Has anyone here with a 328 (or 330) done a muffler delete out to two single tips like a 335 (or 340)?

Im trying to think of how best to do it, logistically speaking. I have a 328i diffuser and am trying to source a carbon fiber m sport style diffuser for the two single tips. I imagine that I would have to have the diffuser there at the muffler shop, for the shop to measure where the tips should end at correctly?

1. Bring car to muffler shop
2. Remove stock diffuser
3. Shop cuts off muffler
4. I install new diffuser
5. Shop fabricates/bends pipes accordingly?

Any ideas on how to do this a more efficient way? I wouldn't be able to even test fit the diffuser if my stock exhaust system is there, in the way, correct?

I'd assume if you could measure the diffuser or ask someone with a 335i to get you measurements, they could do it.

or ask to borrow the 335/340 rear diffuser before going into the shop. Its essentially a direct replacement of the 320/328 diffuser.
