straight piped 650i

So had the resonator taken off my car this morning, sadly, it makes absoloutely not difference -- looks like the resonator on there does nothing as it is. While they were removing the resonator, I had them start it up to hear what it sounded like without mufflers and resonator....WOW. sounds MEAN. Sadly the clip looks like it got cut off, but you get the idea

Was going to remove resonator and do X-Pipe, but straight pipe sounds so much better, thanks!

I understand, no muffler, nothing. I was thinking about getting X-Pipe with stock muffler at one point. So, this video shows that it is best without anything!

I wonder if 2009328i tried new setup with the flaps in the muffler opened.

O man, that's depressing. May be having muffler shop custom straight pipes w/o muffler would be best bet for good sound for this car. I checked many clips and they are all not that exciting comparing to your clip w/o muffler and resonator.
