Akrapovic X-pipe update

Due to some inquiries in the last few days here are some further info concerning the Akrapovic X-pipe. The x-pipe (link pipes and collector including 100cpsi catalyzers) normally only bolt on to the Akrapovic rear section, it is normally not compatible to stock or other aftermarket rear sections. To make it bolt on with stock or other aftermarket mufflers, special adapters are required! These x-pipes are only available at selected vendors.

What are the performance gain and the sound with stock back and Akra x-pipe. I want to keep the stock as possible and I think this is the best combination.

I had a similar setup with my E46 M3 - OEM rear with Milltek 100 cpi cats which sounded awesome.

I want to buy this X-pipe to go with my Supersprint rear section.

Which North American vendor(s) can supply with pipe with the correct adapters? MSRP?

Caution - crap quality copies!!!

Obviously a different vendor then the mentioned distributors tried to copy the above shown customized x-pipe with the result that his customers did ask me for help. I do not want to show the picture about what I have seen, but I was simply shocked. Please watch out what you are buying and from whom!!!

Bumping this old thread. I am looking to do the same thing and mate a different exhaust to the Akra Xpipe. Does anyone know where I can source these adapters from?

Like I mentioned in PM, they will need to be custom made. IND said they could get them since supposedly Akrapovic offered them at some point but they never got back to me. I had to have mine custom made.

Thanks tech... I just wanted to see if anyone can point me in the right direction on obtaining these adapters instead of looking for someone locally to custom make me a set. I did contact some people and are awaiting there responses.
