Photos/Video: Akrapovic Slip-On vs. Stock E90 Exhaust

Picked up my Akrapovic Slip-On exhaust from Ralf Krenzer (Krenzer Performance Parts) the other day at his home - called for availability at 0930hrs and had it in my hands at 1300hrs (after a 2-hour drive)! Great customer service and responsive vendor; beautiful frozen grey E92! He demo'd the full Evo in all it's rumbling glory. Going to get used to the slip-on before contemplating an upgrade to the full Evo system.

Did the install, no issues - here's some photos and a comparo vid:

It sounds almost the same. You should definitely add the x-pipe and get some more tone and especially more power out of the system.

Do the full system, you're just delaying the inevitable! Ask me.... I know

Plus the instant power gains you feel with the X-pipe are night and day to the slip on system.

LOL. Thanks for the feedback/suggestions, but I'm still on the fence about the x-pipe and Delete-R. Going to focus on driving for a bit - still getting used to the stock power !

I'm going to bookmark this and in 2-3 months time when your Akra x-pipe is in. I'm going to post this link and hit you with a "I told you so!!"
