I think you've got me sold Ara, and thanks for sending me that info on TS. I got an email from the German distributer this morning, and I think I'm gonna pull the trigger.

It just looks like a bracket to strengthen the pipes. You won't see it once it's on the car.

Maybe a very slight drone, but it's pretty low in the rev range, maybe around 2200rpm.

Mines on the way. Wanted to get from Imran but he only have it in 3 weeks time. So i got it from Ralf. You cant go wrong with either one. Ralf has been nothing short of perfect ordering through him. I cant wait to get mine fitted on.

Those with Akra, is it really loud? On what scale of loud would you rate it?

It's not very loud at all. With the windows up and the music on, you will really only notice it at low RPM.

Inside the cabin itīs real comfortable - I heard from outside it is much louder than stock! But I made only 300miles so far...

Should've been more specific, does anyone have a sound clip in motion on the street?
