Akrapovic with Chrome Tips?

Deciding to sell my gintani sport soon and swap it for the akrapovic catback (paired with my gintani catless xpipe). Never thought I'd do this, but after getting the blower my current setup is just getting louder and louder and the drone is unbearable at this point its ruining the car. Anyways, can you guys post pics of the akra catback with chrome tips? I remember seeing one car with it and fell in love with how it looked but after googling I cant seem to find any pics. Who could I order this setup from? Seems like most people only offer the regular tips or cf, thanks

It was offered for a very brief time in history. Can't buy them anymore. Possibly custom but even at that time the tips were 200$ a piece.

I settled for ti

Have you thought about just going with the stock muffler? with the catless xpipe it should still sound pretty good and probably won't have any drone at all. performance wise it shouldn't make a difference. just a thought

Contact iND and see if they can still get them. If not, you could buy the regular Ti ones and have them polished by a specialty shop.

When I saw them on BMRLVR's gorgeous Moonstone E90 last year I had to have them too. The only way I was able to get them was during one of my trips to Germany and I bought them with the AKRA slip-on as they would not sell them separately. This worked ok for me as I needed the entire slip-on anyway, just had to ship the entire exhaust from Germany back to the USA. Thankfully Akrapovic exhausts are made of Titanium so the shipping cost wasn't that bad.

They still look like new, I polish them once in a while but the upkeep on them has been very easy!!!
