Using a larger diameter pipe will be fine, just make sure you use a proper coupler where the 2.25" meets the 2.5" pipe.

A larger pipe tends to give you increased flow with slightly better HP at high RPM but sometimes a little less mid-range torque due to the loss of back pressure.

I think the Magnaflow full cat-back system uses 2.5" pipe.
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
