Looking for an Akrapovic owner

Hey dudes,

I know this question was asked a couple of months ago, but the OP never got a firm answer. Does anyone in LA or OC have an Akrapovic exhaust that I could hear? I have an Eisenmann Sport that I want to compare against. I'd love to hear both the Slip-On and the Evolution.

Thanks in advance.

May want to get in touch with Sard, who has the Evolution system installed and is local.

Spencer!

Thank you, sir. I have no problem waiting. What part of LA do you live in? What's your general schedule like?

I'll PM sard in a bit. Sammy, it looks like you have a supercharger. Does that change the sound characteristics of the exhaust at all? I'd love to hear an Evolution on an NA car... anyone else?

Cool man, I can meet up with you where ever. I live in Calabasas, but am in the West Side quite often. Let me know.

I'll do that. My iPhone will have to do, though, since that's all I have that can record video.

Great. I work in Marina del Rey, so we can either meet up there (some open roads on Culver, Jefferson, Vista del Mar, and Pershing) or somewhere halfway. Good luck with the install, and let me know when you're ready.

Akra slip on

Hey Spencer,
Glad to hear you are going with the Akra!

aajami,
Thanks for offering your help regarding listening to the Eisenmann Sport a few months back. I ended up getting the Akra slip on couple months ago. I'm in the LA area too. But I'm crazy busy at work this month.
