anyways overall the sound from both, i just like the weight savings and look of the akra, which is why i sold my eisenmann.

happy motoring with either one you choose!
Thanks I think I 'm gonna go with Akrapovic! plus I can keep upgrading it until I get the full Evo.

Good choice. Also the resale value of the Akra is high and theres a huge demand for it. So if you buy it, use it for a while and then want to sell it you shouldn't have any trouble doing so quickly at a good price.

The titanium of Akra gives a dull hollow sound. Eisenmann sport is the way to go or BMW Performance. I've owned all three. Akra least favorite sound of all three.

If you are comparing Akrapovic vs Eisenmann you shouldnt really compare it to the Eisenmann RACE version since its apples and oranges...

Just to help the OP out a little....

1st, 2nd, and last passes are me with Akra EVO. 3rd pass is Hans with the Performance exhaust. The GTR is Dave and he's got the HKS on his, I'm sure you guys were wondering.



Here we have Dave's GTR, Ashley's Akra? (can't remember), Rice, and then my Akra EVO.



Finally, we have Dave's GTR, Rice, Ashley and Hans with his Performance.



Bonus:
15 seconds into this video... That Vette sounded nasty, as in bad ass!


Me again at Oak Tree

Here is a video for you to watch. Make sure you have good speakers and the volume turned up. Best representation of the full evo system I've seen to date.

Which one ya recommend? Also would like to get quotes from the sponsors on here!!!! Oh by the way I'm putting the car for demo with the dealer and they are giving me 5% off the total price of the car for 3 months or 3,000 miles. Thanks
so you got $2-3K savings for 3 months dealers use? first 3 months for dealer to use?

I don't know if I'd ever want to do that knowing what they going to do with the car especially under breaking period. Please tell me I got something wrong, because I do want to be wrong here.

The dealer will have the car as a demo and the sales agent is the one who is going to show the car to other potential buyers. They will service the car accordingly. This is the most reputable Military Sales Dealership in Germany and I know that every person that has bought a car and demoed it thru them didn't have any issues, because of their reputation is why I went with them. Plus most of the M Flight club member can vouch for them!

The akra is really designed to be paired with the x pipe. Without it the slip on seems to me a bit too deep and smooth. Combined with the raspiness of the x pipe it sounds perfect.

I'm really annoyed to have to spend more than 3k for just mufflers though. Couldn't get myself to buy one even though I have the cash in hand. I have that feeling of being ripped off :/

Just one word: Akrapovic.

Let me rephrase that;
Two words: Akrapovic Evolution...

Eisenmann Race! period. Game Over! No other exhaust mods needed. Just get the rear section and save the rest of your money for other mods. Then your car will turn heads with looks and sound.

Akrapovic evo is a different story, but if you're going to do an axle back ONLY Eisenmann Race all the way.
