Hi I am looking for a little more sound from my exhaust

I have a 2013 R56 mini with the N18 engine.

I was thinking of changing the down pipe to a decat but a couple of questions

If I decat it will the car will need a tune to make it run better??
will doing this give me a slightly better exhaust sound??

Other option was to get rid of the first box in the system with just a straight pipe
I take it i would not need a tune if i did this
What sort of noise level am I looking at if i do this.option

These are the cheapest options for now till I can afford a compleat new system and a dyno time


thanks

Much louder with decat but also more hassle, more expensive to fit, illegal at MOT time (UK) and yes will need a remap to get the best out of it.

Option 2 is well easy, just replace your resonator with a straight pipe, nothing else needed.

Any decent exhaust place will knock one up for you mate, just go in and ask for resonator to be removed.

I have a longlife exhaust place near me, used them for years with various cars.
