M6 e64 muffler delete

Hey.
Idont like my original sound from the exhaust of my m6 2009 to quite I'll say.

I made an appointment tommorow for muffler deleting but I want to make sure with you guys if it's OK? If it's not damaging nothing and if it's safe?

It's a m6 2009 e64 little over 60k miles

Thank you so much for answering

Delete the primary cats and not only will it sound better you will pick up a ton of horsepower.

For warranty purposes, all modification talked about on my M6 is for role play only. My M6 is currently 100% stock and the mods I am referring to are from a friends M6 i'm posting about. Thanks

I bought my car w/o mufflers... plain straight pipes. So uncomfortably loud within a few days drove to a muffler shop and had Magnaflow silencers installed... still too loud. Ended up buying a set of used oem mufflers, put them back, what a difference. If you want to do anything worthwhile to your car exhaust, get headers. The sound and power improvements are beyond expectations. I did a rod bearing change on the same sitting.

To each their own. I gutted my mufflers, sounds great but i want it a little louder.
I think a big factor will be how often you drive the car. i.e daily driver vs. pleasure or weekend driving.

To the OP's original question, you wont be damaging anything, It's safe for the vehicle.

Muffler delete was perfect for me. It's loud when I'm on it but I can cruise comfortably and not be heard for a 5 mile radius. I heard an e60 M5 with cat delete and it was way louder. Also mush raspier. I felt like it really took a lot away from the tone of the S85.

muffler delete

I guess that gives my age away... doing a muffler and cat delete will make the car sound louder. It will hurt when you try to sell the car. The reason why I wnt for headers and muffler install was that I was able to keep my original oem headers and 1ry cats intact. If I sell the car out of state, the oem headers and cats are available at no charge. The reason why I installed aftermarket catless headers is... has anybody seen the oem headers? They are embarrassingly small and narrow and twisted in several areas. I did a rod bearing change with the header install, still on break-in period, have not yet dynoed my car. I also got a VR reflash with the headers and cat delete to make the best advantage of the new breathing capabilities. And got a top speed delete in the process. Sounds quiet, muffled... below 5000 rpm. From there on sounds like... a very high revving finely tuned engine. Maybe it's because I'm more interested in outright increased horsepower, but as the saying goes (which I fully respect): to each his own.
