plus a random iphone video of when i got the resonater deleted. already had the muffler deleted but heard good things about taking the res off so i said ohh well lets do it... like it alot better and not as crazy loud as the videos make it seem. unless i floor it or am in 3.5k+rpms..... dont judge me for this retarded video lol i was a tad bit excited that night....
I really like the wheel set up!! I saw another Bimmer on the freeway with similar wheels "offset/width). Tell me, do you get any wheel rub? And what are the exact specs and brand ?

I would recommend the straight pipes with resos front the cat back. Not cels not has smell as you'll still have cats

I'm married to a beautiful Filipina lady, she won't mind. Once in a blue moon we take the dtc/dsc off and put it in sport mode; then we go pull some hard turns lololol. She's the one who wants a new wheel set, haha.

Around 2 weeks ago after we went grocery shopping, we went through a tunnel and I floored it. She said it didn't sound "loud" enough. So we started looking through YouTube to see what we can do to the set up. She likes the exhaust note on the gt-r's, but we don't have that -_- It feels good to have support, so I'll keep going.

OP, if you really want to improve your sound then invest in a high quality catback exhaust or a different muffler. Generally if you go cheap, it will sound cheap.
Any brands you recommend? Links?
