Is there really any added benefit to that? At first, the staggered tips looked kinda cool. But the more I look at them, the iffier they get LOL. I guess I'm sticking to my original plan: save up, then go broke to buy an akra system

The added benefit is that it looks like shit. Save up for the Akra

An example of why this forum can be so toxic. The tips are completely adjustable. So your point is that he should buy the Akra BECAUSE this other dude adjusted his tips to stick out too far??

was talking about e92 specific exhaust on e90. But ok I guess I'm just toxic. Kekeke. Btw I've put a so called adjustable tip exhaust and my e90 and it still looked like ass after tucking it in. Not saying that's the case w the AA on e90 but I do not think I've seen pics of AA on e90 that had the tips tucked. Maybe that's as much as you can tuck it in on the e90s. How would u know if those tips are adjusted out or if they just look like at full tuck for the sedans. Maybe Omar has pics with the tips "tucked" in for the sedan. Btw the akra has a e90 specIfic muffler plus adjustable tips. Way better than the one size fit all approach.

I just got my full system today, will be installing on Monday. I'm not going to want the tips to stick out like that, though.

I kind of like the tips that stick out a little more. Call me crazy but it looks more aggressive.
