Awesome, thanks! Can we get this stickied?
i talked to mark about this before making the thread, i think he (or dan) might sticky it, i think that'd be a idea as well

that makes it easier to keep it up for everyone to see and future edits

Awesome sticky, thank you!!!

I’m currently doing a muffler delete on my ‘07 e63 and finished one muffler today and tomorrow will finish the next and so far with just one side finished it sounds amazing!!! Definitely louder but not over bearing even in my old age lol. It sounds much deeper and hollow at idle and WOT.

Since I don’t see a DIY for this mod on the list I’ll put together a nice procedure (hopefully within the next few days or so) with a list of parts you can get locally including the tips. There’s a ton of youtube videos with before and after sound checks but surprisingly not a single DIY, at least for the e63.

You could can do this yourself for under $100 and should take about 4-6hrs depending on how prepared you are.
