HP increase = 0
Silly increase = a lot

Depends on what you like. I wouldn't do it, but that doesn't mean it's not right for you.

You won't see any horsepower gains, and it will be a lot of work to get a the quad outlets put onto your car.

I don't remember who it was, but in designing a new exhaust for the E46 M3, they discovered that it was actually better to go with the single sided exhaust, but since it would look goofy to have a gaping hole in the rear valence, they had dummy tips mounted. So yes it would be a lot of work and no it wouldn't do anything for you.

I wonder if the BMW will be able to shoehorn "real" dual exhausts in the upcoming V8 E90 M3.
