Obviously, it would be better to hear it in person.
Can someone have an exhaust that isn't the Kriessig or do you have to put everyone else down to justify your exhaust?

he has got a point though

everybody comments that because the Akra is TUV approved, its only slightly louder than stock.

Exhausts like the Eisemann Race, Mesiterchaft GT2 etc.. will be much louder and more purposefull sounding

Why would you want anything much louder than stock? You can tell that Akra has purpose, but it's refined.

It's a 70k BMW for god sake, it's not suppose to sound like a 20k Ford Mustang with no cats and 2 chamber flowmasters under it.

You are absolutely right ! You need to decide what fits better your taste and your needs.

It's just hard sometimes to find a good product and that is why we are offering to demo it on my our car.

So, all local guys feel free to stop by and check it out !

Is it just me, or are the tips crooked? If so, can they be adjusted?

They are and they can!

Finally folks, do me a favour (not referring to this but to other PMīs) when you want to buy at other vendors - ask them directly and not me!!!
Thank you so much for understanding...

I don't think they look crooked but tips can definitely be adjusted.

They are a bit, and unfortunately mine looked EXACTLY like that. The install should be done from the rear in and not the front to the rear, if you knwo what I mean. It's an easy fix though.

p.s. Enjoy how clean those tips look now, cause they get dirty fast

+1 Akra sounds like it means business! It also gets slightly louder after a few 100 kms. Sounds unbelievable now, but doesn't irritate.

Nothing worse that being heard from 5 miles away.
