Exhaust cutout question

So I was looking into exhaust cutouts for my last car, a WRX, because of the benefits of running an open turbo downpipe. But now that I have my new 328 I'm thinking about how awesome it would be to have your quiet, docile, bimmer. Then at the touch of a button have a screaming exhaust note. So, my question then is. Do any of you guys run, or know someone who runs exhaust cutouts? What is the diameter of the two pipes that go into the first muffler? Also I'm looking for general feedback on the idea. Good or bad?

Don't know about Utah, but it would be illegal here in MA.

Does nothing for a 328 but make it sound like a beater with a whole in the exhaust.

Make sure you use a dull knife, it looks cooler with the rough edges

Don't forget the big ass wing on the trunk deck .... and the garbage can exhaust tailpipe thingie.

Or you could have bought a 335 with the CANflap feature.

Let's talk, Hitman.

Down to it: W/O hydraulic low ride, cutouts strictly poseur! Pass the 12" bounce test, then you ready.

Keep it gangsta, dog.
