M3 E90 Akrapovic in Australia with Polished Tips

I love everything about this exhaust system, from the quality of the packaging, the fixtures and fittings, the welding of the components, the design of the exhaust, and of course the sound. We have installed the very first set of polished tips for this exhaust system on this car, i hope you enjoy the images.

I'm 50/50 opinion wise; it depends on the color of the exterior of your car. I personaly like the Titanium burnt tips.

Atlantis' car tips were nice too, it would be hard to pick a finish on this exhaust

Think I'd have to go for the Gloss Black, Burnt Ti & Polished & switch 'em out every so often till I decided which I liked best. They're all look great.

Naah! Much too quiet for you, my friend! But the power gains are impressive, as I hope to find out for myself on Friday. I will be posting dyno graphs for the X-pipe & HFC install.

Looks much nicer IMO with the polished tips - definitely a better colour match for silver-based cars.

You're right, I would regret it not being loud enough for me.

Although, the full Akra is very tempting.....Especially when they have one for the e90 fitment, and it looks superb in the photos-----> All the way from how nice the full system was boxed during shipment-------> to the way it looks from the rear bumper.

Look forward to seeing your dyno graphs.

I really like the polished tips, i had another E90 M3 in yesterday with an Akrapovic on it and it had the titanium tips, it was nice to put the cars side by side and compare the two, the polished look very nice on the silver car.

Let me also add the quality in the packaging, the way it is presented before you see the goods is amazing, the company must really spend time to make sure everything is 'right' before the goods go out. I just can't speak highly enough about this exhaust.

We finished the other work today, Eibach Prokit, and a BMC Air filter and it is being picked up tomorrow morning, i am keen to see what the customer thinks.
