Both sounds amazing. It's more personal preferences.
Dinan has Dinan's tone (can't explain but all Dinan exhausts have same style nice deep/mean tones) and Akra has very Titanium + european exotic tone.
Dinan has no cats compare to Akra but Akra weights nothing while Dinan weights quite a lot.
The Dinan might weigh more than Akra....but it's still much lighter than stock. So, you are still losing weight, just not as much as Akra's.
I have the Dinan rear section and didn't think I'd be happy with it until I got the mid-pipe as well. Boy, was I wrong...it's much louder than stock when under load. As H-Bomb says..it's a deeper tone. When you get on it, it sounds really really good...very sporty, yet refined. For a classy BMW, it's a great fit.
