exhaust to quiet

I recently got a 98 e39. I got the car very cheap as the motor had been over heated badly. I had a line on a S52 engine and so in it went. Car looks and drives absolutely great. My only issue is its way to quiet for me. I would like to drive into the carport and people sitting in the front room know I just drove in! I mean I sneak up on the dogs! Ok anyway it needs to make a little noise. I have been told that removing the muffler or "cans", the car has a very nice sound. What have you guys done? Will doing this make it obnoxious? Any input would be great and thanks
