My dyson works very well...not terribly loud. Beats using a broom and tray.

Personally I like my AkrapoVAC....... Ever since first seeing this thread I have been tuning my vacuum trying to get it to sound like my M3 but to no avail

If you don't want a vacuum cleaner, try a swiffer!! They are very good but are very quiet!!

I'm not a fan of the Dinan or the Akra, but anything is better than the factory muffler, it's just too damned quiet for the character of this car

Great call. I do too and love it.
On a side note, Dyson vacuums don't suck. Over rated by far

Now that Gintani exhaust in the video above sounds great. That's no vacuum cleaner.

What can I do to just make my OEM exhaust a little louder, or what exhaust should I get to accomplish that, without getting a vacuum cleaner?
M Performance Exhaust, which has a gorgeous sound. If you're thinking of full system or x-pipe, there are almost too many options to list. (Look at the sticky post at the top of this forum.)

I was gonna say meisterschaft GT all the way! But I'm afraid of getting banned lol I'm surprised there are no meisterschaft fans out there. I've heard Akra sounds good but never in person anyone willing to meet up so I could hear it let me know please!!

Seriously thinking about getting M performance exhaust.

Does anybody know if these will go on sale as e9x production winds down?
