I just wanted to share a couple videos of my new Akrapovic Evolution Line (full titanium) Exhaust system. I wanted to thank r33_RGSport Ben for getting to work early for me last week to get this installed. Thank you! We waited a few weeks to confirm it was the new and improved version with the brackets on them. So for obvious reasons I was getting very anxious. I couldn't be any happier. Makes the car so much more fun to drive. I also have to shout out my boy KensoG30 for the awesome videos! We got some other cool videos coming but I wanted to share these for now to show you how MEAN the M8 can sound with the full Akrapovic system.

Anything custom can be done.
But, for sure will require rear bumper and diffuser.

Phenomenal acoustics. Slovenian national orchestra can now take a few days off.

Very nice. It'll mellow down even more as the soot builds up in it.

NEW VIDEO: Just wanted to share a video that KensoG30 hooked me up with. Thanks Ken! Great close ups of the Akrapovic Exhaust and highlights the sound of the car in action.

Great vids! Rare to find a video that comes close to the real thing and this does. I mean its still not the same, but you get what I am saying.

I wish I had someone around me with great audio/video recording equipment/skills to record my Akrapovic with secondary cats removed as it is a bit louder, more raw and has more pops and bangs. You can also hear the turbo spinning @ idle and get really nice turbo noises while driving and decelerating as well.

It's like BMW was afraid to let this car make noise and when you "uncork" it there are so many different sounds to be hear it is lovely. While there are cheaper exhaust mods out there to get more sound and volume to date Akra is by far the best sounding one available.
