Sure wish I was back in the province for this, unfortunately I don't return until Sept 7th. Hopefully there is a meet after the middle of September!?!?

In case anyone is interested, I was just at Edmonton BMW grabbing some oil and I noticed they had a frozen grey M3 coupe in the lift. Looks quite snazzy. It's not something I'd pick up but it certainly looks good.

no...
all M3s are welcome, there are different sub-forums for the E46 / E36... any pic of your car? 1997 S/C M3 Dakar Yellow sounds pretty exciting...
The "edmontonians" thread (from what i can tell) is for pretty much everything and anything you want to share with others in town, car-related or not so much...

Welcome here!

Rallye

Glenn
The BMW edmonton rallye was postponed until early October ( probably Oct 9) due to low participation. Hope you can make it then or other M3's . I'd hate to think that I would win the rallye just because I had the only M entered.

Hey Felix

How is the full Akra system holding up?

I am looking at getting it for 2011 and just want to ask on the volume of the exhaust and if it is ok as a DD?

Thx

Hey Glenn,

I can comment on the Full Akra system..... I installed it on my car the first day I got her back in Fort Mac.

I now have just over 11000KM on the system and it is holding up beautifully. No signs of wear as of yet, actually I's expect the system to outlast the car due to the metallurgical properties of the Titanium Alloy Akrapovic uses in this system. Also the fact that BMW uses the Akra system as the system of choice for the M3 GT4 and as an option for many of their motorcycles says it all.

I fitted the system myself and it fit so well I didn't even have to adjust it.... just fit it with all of the clamps/fasteners loose starting from the front and it fit and lined up perfectly..... tips even sat even and level in the bumper cutouts.

To answer your question about volume all I have to say is it is perfect. No drone but it is a little louder than stock. You can carry on a conversation in the car without even having to elevate your voice. I have to admit when I first started the car with the system installed I thought I was going to hate it. The Akra sounds super agressive on a cold start-up but quiet's down into a nice deep idle. My Fiance, My 63 year-old Father, My 60 Year-old Mother, My Brother, my 64 Year-old Mother in-law, and my Uncle all rode in the car and when asked none of them thought it was loud at all. When you get on it is a whole other story.... it sounds mean yet sopisticated with lots of character.

I will be in Edmonton on the 6th of september and you can take a ride in the car and judge the system for yourself. Let me know if you are interested.

I would echo BMRLVR comments. There is no drone. I would say that when cold it sure has a bark. But when warm does not sound as loud. Almost like a valve that closes after the engine warms up. Certainly it is louder than Stock but from my autocross the people at the start line say that the car doesn't sound like a bmw and isn't that loud. Fabulous exhaust. I think. and certainly feels like more HP.

OEM or aftermarket?

My Camaross305 kit is still running strong. I had to change the fuse once but otherwise it's good and I'm over 20k KM on them.

Just curious, has anybody signed up/given thought to the BMW driving school Edmonton BMW is organizing? I believe it is Sept 24.

hi guys !
i spotted a white E90 yesterday again on Calgary trail...
does any one of you know a good place to get a clear bra in Edmonton? a friend of mine just picked up (later today actually) a Shelby GT 500 and is planning to drive it occasionally in the winter... i think clear bra is a must...
any suggestions will be appreciated !

Pat
