New (hopefully last) Mod for my 2011.5 AW E90 M3 (Akra slip-on)

been going back and forth for the past few months about which exhaust to get. Finally decided on an Akra slip on. I will not post my comments/reviews about this exhaust as it's been discussed very often, all I can say is I concur

A big thank you to Michael/acuteperformance for his help and patience while I kept trying to figure out which exhaust I wanted. Answered all my q's promptly and completely. When it came time to purchase his service and pricing was the best (as per usual).

Okay, enough talk, here's the pics...and a few extra since the weather is so nice today and I had the camera out...











Other mods:
50% Madico Tint (Sunsheild Tint in Sherman Oaks)
TMS 12.5 mm spacers all around (acutperformance)
Paint Matched Bumper Reflectors (IND)
Paint Matched Side Gills (IND)
Paint Matched Key Hole Delete/Cover (IND)
OEM M3 Edition Front Grills (Tischer/getbmwparts.com)
OEM Silver PY24W Bulbs (Center BMW)
RPI Scoops (Trinity Autosport)
Hawk HPS Brake Pads (acutperformance)

***Akra slip-on install was done by LTBMW (thanx for the fitting me in and great pricing). Final adjustments to get the tips to sit "right" were done by Bavarian workshop, LTBMW is a bit of a drive for me and bav workshop is just easier to get to/closer.
