Taking the cats off my 458 was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. Maybe it is because I have a Spider model and the sound gets into the cabin a bit more, but MY GOD! The sound is absolutely glorious. By far the best sounding car I have ever had the pleasure of driving. Really lets that V8 sing- the way it should have been. I can't imagine driving a 458 with stock exhaust anymore. I get goosebumps every time I drive the car. The downshifts are INSANE, and high RPM upshifts are equally as impressive.
Taking the cats off can be a bit of a headache depending on the state you live in, but luckily for me there is no emissions where I live. :-)
