to delete, or not delete, that is the question

soooooo many exhaust options out there, just got me a 2012 128i 'vert with the n52k manual trans
want more sound without breaking the bank or looking like a fanboy. seen everything on here from catless headers+golf tee+res/muff delete, to just a 135i muffler install. I'm thinking of the golf tee and instead of full muff delete replace with a glasspack, essentially adding a second resonator. cant really find too much in the way of others experience/sound clips of such a low cost setup other than straight pipe

Just get the muffler delete. If you want more then that get a res delete and the 135i muffler. Right is I have the Res and muffler delete but I'm prepping the 135i muffler now.

I feel like the muffler AND resonator delete is too much, too tinny

It's not to bad. Past 5k it does get tiny and raspy. The plan for me in the next week or two is to put the 135i muffler on and have a valves cutout behind it. Eventually I'm going with headers and no cats with a resonator.
