I will have my system installed on my 2011 E92 that I am picking up on Thursday. I am extremely excited. I will be happy as long as the car isn't loud under 3,000 RPM while cruising the freeway.

I like the other tip options. I was thinking about the carbon fiber tips that I saw on another post.

Good luck cruising the freeways below 3000 rpm.

I think that the polish tips from Akrapovic would be a great option for you, too. Especially, with the silver TE37 wheels that you have on.

your car is not the wildest set up that I have had the chance to work with, but It is definitely my favorite. you have all the components that I'd love to put on my own M3.

Really looking at the Akrapovic Full Exhaust system also, but would like to have it with polished tips, which is currently not offered by manufacturer. Some aftermarket sources have offered a polished finish in the past but apparently, it did not stand the test-of-time - so no longer available (?) . Does anyone know if there is any good, durable option or means of polishing these tips? Is powder-coating an option (bright silver or "chrome-look")? I don't want a dark finish, since my exterior color is Jerez - just don't think a dark-colored exhaust compliments Jerez (MHO ) - but really like the performance figures of the Akrapovic!

If u have ur foot steady at fwy cruising its fine very slight drown... But if press it a little.... It will give a bit of growl... People around u will look... Akra on low RPM below 3k is a bit loud but not LOUD LOUD compare to others
