Akra evo is a great choice if you feel what is probably less than 5 ponies is worth it... (+40lbs of weight reduction and a neat sounding exhaust).

I personally can't justify spending that kind of cash for that when I can do nearly the same for less than 20% of the cost.

Lol.. How many people on this forum actually track? 10-20 percent?

Noone cares dude, most here just want to pull up to a c63 and take it down on the street.

You know that glorious metallic ticking sound when you start up the M? Gone...


Sound for me plays a big role.
What does sound have to do with this thread? I was simply stating that the M3 wasn't designed to compete with other cars in a straight line. I was making a general comment that the new M3 will probably be able to do a better job than the E9x.

I don't really care about your preference for engine sound but thanks for sharing.

You can make it faster but not to beat a modded c63. You may beat a stock one but impossible to beat a modded one.

Put a S/C on the M3 and you'll pull on any stock C63. For those of you saying the C63 can't corner you couldn't be more wrong and need to get into one with an LSD and proper rear rubber asap. The current model cars are very close! For daily driving pleasure the C63 wins every time and thats the reason I bought one over an M3.

Such a subjective statement. I adore the M3 as a daily driver. That's why we all buy different cars.

I was comparing the Akra EVO to the turner test pipe in which the Akra probably doesn't offer much more than 5 more hp.
