The resonators do a huge amount of sound deadening. Check out the YouTube vid below where a guy replaced the stock exhausts with straight pipes and it was actually not that loud due to the resonators.
Hmmm....I think I like the sound of the exhaust delete better. Its a bit deeper.
Here are two vids of stock exhaust with no resonators, might actually be too much.
Here are two vids from the guy who just eliminated the stock exhausts:
Straight lines are for fast cars...turns are for fast drivers
'04 M3 - track
'06 650i Cab - daily driver
'02 Highlander - kid hauler
'01 330Ci - winter beater
