    I've seen a Laser Blue R56 around there once or twice that's definitely running a de-cat.

    I think a few folks have tried de-catting the F56 to mixed success. It's more of a pain than on the R56 and the sound, whilst louder, doesn't seem to be much of an improvement.

    For me the JCW Pro is a nice sweet spot.

    Yeah I just find the pro exhaust is very quiet at low rpms until you get to about 3,000 then it sounds awesome

    My GP was decat’d and I loved it but it sounds horrendous on an F56 IMHO
