330ci straight pipes.

Hello there

I recently had my local muffler shop fit 2 1/4 inch piping in place of the two resonators and muffler on my 330 and I thought that you guys would be interested in hearing how it sounds. Trust me when i say it is LOUD. There is some rasp at highway speeds (not as bad as you might think), but it does surprisingly OK when cruising around town. I only have 2 small clips for now, but I'll make longer and better videos if requested. Now, is this setup waaaaaaaayyyyy over the top? Of course. Does the car have any bite to back up its bark? Usually not. But it doesn't really matter to me. The car is still fun, and now it's even more fun with a bit of an attitude Be sure to tell me what you think, whether the feedback be negative or positive, I'd like to hear it.

I've run this setup for about 6 months when i bought my car(came with it). Was fun while it lasted, but the drone was too much and it got old quickly.

Sik. You should drop you exhaust next and run straight out of your headers. Or side pipes.
