528 with n20 engine and active flap exhaust

I just purchase a new 2012 528i xdrive and ordered a of front spoiler and rear diffuser from Vorsteiner. I need to modify the exhaust on the 528 to have dual one.

Since nobody offers an exhaust for the n20 engine, I need to have a custom one made for my car.

I just realized that my exhaust use an active flap on the exhaust, I guess is to create back pressure at low rpm or something like that. If I do not install this butterfly valve in my exhaust and I completely bypass it, will I have a check engine light or will my car run rough?

Hey guys I just ordered a 2012 528XI w M Sport Package, Technology Package, Premium Package, Premium Sound Package, Cold Weather Package, and the Paddle Shifters - I'm just curious to know how you guys feel about the n20 engine - I've been reading a lot of reviews and I see mixed feelings I'm wondering if I made a mistake? Please let me know

I have a 528xdrive loaded. I came from a 335i and the power isn't that bad though there definitely is a difference. All that matters is the car your are coming out of. That will be the determinant.
