X6m aftermarket exhaust on a budget

Hey I appreciate any help or info. I have a stock 2012 x6m and would like to modify the exhaust. Everything on the market is too rich for my blood. Has anymore removed/gutted their muffler and kept the valvtronic exhaust tips intact? I would like to minimize drone so would probably add a x pipe aswell.

Search electric exhaust cutout in the X5m forum.
That may be helpful.

getting rid of cats and putting an X-pipe without touching the rest may sound nice with valved stock muffler..

I preferred that my M button still made the exhaust change... electric cutouts are ridic... go vacuum controlled and golf tee mod the muffler or swap it for something altogether different.

When I wire the exhaust valves open I instantly noticed a decrease in low end performance. It's relying on the added back pressure to increase low end spool. The open valves hinder the back pressure.

Assuming that you're doing it from a phone, change over to Desktop Mode and it'll stop closing on you.
