Fame Freiheit Exhaust

Friend with a GoPro made a video for me, thought I would share it since its one of the most rare exhaust out there. Quality of this exhaust is incredible, as good as Akrapovic if not better. I own both exhaust and I can't decide which one to keep on the car.

Setup is only catback with BMC filter, stock everything else.

Sounds great! Sounds deeper and more aggressive than hollow Akra (on video)
What's your take on the difference in sound?

The Fame does sound more V8'ish, throaty and aggressive with more base but its very smooth. Its just as loud if not louder than the Akra evo, even only as a slip-on. Definitely deeper tho.
The Akra evo sounds okay, a bit more mellow and over 4k rpm gets drowned out by the engine noise....

I have to say the Fame honestly sounds better which is why its still on my car but I cant let go of the Akra evo.

That sounds pretty damn good.

Any cost savings compared to the Akra?

around $3k shipped vs. $3.5k for the akra slip-on.

no drone, incredible build quality. Dare I say as good as Akra, much better than Eisenmann or anything else out there by far.

Ive since got rid of the Fame exhaust since I put the Akra GT4 on.

I would put it in this order: Akra GT4 > Fame Freiheit > Akra Evo > anything else
