What is this Exhaust? (JB e92 at Center BMW)

I'm looking to buy an e92 m3 and when I was at the dealership yesterday, (Center BMW, Sherman Oaks, CA), I saw a JB e92 (customer car) with one of the best sounding exhausts I've ever heard. The tips weren't rolled but they were thicker than what eisenmann has. There was also a resonator in the tips. I looked at the tips up close but there was no brand name engraved on them. I know it's going to be hard to tell, but does anybody have an idea of what they could have been? Maybe the owner is on here, his car had MFest, eurotuner, and H&R stickers.

What finish were the tips? Chrome? Satin?

Sounds like it was an Akrapovic exhaust system.

Yes its a custom shop here in Los Angeles. I'll try to snap some pics but I am super busy this week so I don't know if I can. Tightie had a very similar setup on his car so you can try searching and im sure there are pictures. Let me know if you have any other questions.
