Cheapest titanium exhaust för M3 E9X?

I would really want one of those super light titanium exhausts for my car.

What's the cheapest titanium exhaust för M3 E9X?

- Mid-pipe (X-pipe)?
- Mufflers?

I think the Vanguard is your best bet for cheapest.

As said, Vanguard for a complete titanium system. If you are after Titanium look, Agency Power offers a stainless system with Ti tips.

Encore Innovation is by far the cheapest.
Akrapovic Evolution is the best but the most expensive.

Both of which are for sale in the Private Sellers section under Engine | Tuning | Exhaust

Vanguard is cheaper by far.

Retail on the Vanguard is $2899.
http://www.pyspeed.com/product-p/van-8001.htm

You can get this down to about $2500-$2600 new.

Encore retail is $3699.

Superlative is right about the AKRA. It is the most expensive.

I could have sworn I saw the Encore on sale for $949 or something like that.
Was that a limited time offer, or am I just going bonkers?

You're probably going bonkers, BUT if you ever find that deal be sure to let me know! I'd love to pull the trigger on that exhaust.

thing to keep in mind when buying a ti exahust:
even the cheapest one is practically 3k at the end of the day with nice tips and stretching to the higher end is just a few hundred bucks more, so lets say you prefer the akra over the vanguard, its like 2800 vs 3400, if you speak to ralf or something...
i know its still a significant price difference, but not like an m3 to an f430
