I'm torn on that portion. Did hear some pops and a nice slight rumble.
Go back and remove the other 2 man. And as far as sticking out, mine probably stick out 1/2 an inch further out anything else will look tacky imo.

I can't tell if this is a good look or not. See pics. And reason I debate removing both is I promised my fiancé I wouldn't mod this car like I did the M5, and feel like she'll call bullshit with the cold start if I take both out. I started it yesterday morning and it was louder than I thought. I don't know if anyone would even notice them poking out a tad like they are. Thoughts ?

It actually looks great.

Removing resonator is a freebie mod tho, so it's not like the entire turbo back was removed and changed.

Removing 2 resonataors I'm sure will significantly make the cold start louder so at that point remove all 4 IMO.

Ha it's funny when you say it like that. Yeah probably the only person who half assed it . I will shoot cold start video in morning. This is the way I was explaining the difference to my brother. I said ( after I explained how and why I removed the flap fuse so flaps are always open in exhaust), it now sounds in comfort/adaptive the way it sounded before with it in sport mode with ASD coming thru speakers. It's a mild but certainly needed natural sound. Everyone thinks I am insane when it comes to me with my cars and the little things I focus on. We all know the car needs spacers for better stance and more sound as the most basic requirement

It sounds exactly as i expected, about 1/2 of the sound you get with all resonators removed. But, it does sound a lot better than stock.

I had my wife drive my car round the other day and I drove her car, and had her do a few downshifts, etc, it's definitely loud from outside, especially the cracks and pops, you hear them loud and clear haha.

A guy at my office noticed the pops as I downshifted coming into parking lot. I'm in debate mode with myself to leave it or do the other one.

So I may go back, remove the front resonator too and put the fuse back in for the flaps to control the loudness until I hit sport mode for the in your face rumble when I want it

Do it!

It can be easily reversed if it is too much.
