MCB 2010 Edition M3 with Akra... & powder

Special request to powdercoat the exhaust from the cans to the tips. Tips are gloss black, rest is a matte black. Not so great iphone pics, but they give you a good idea. I wanted to camouflage the cans because of BMW's bad job at hiding the OEM muffler with the rear bumper.
Oh, and it sounds grrrreat!
Enjoy.
Before



After (crap iphone pictures)




Thanks to Nate and guys at IND. Real professionals over there.

Just the slip on. Deeper and louder than stock, not a huge difference, just right IMO.

Don't like zcp wheels. GTS maybe, but I like the stock forged black ones.

Powdercoating an exhaust is a bad idea. Ceramic coating would have been the better choice since it can hold up to extreme heat without cracking / flaking

I can see powder coating the OEM exhaust, not the Akra. I would show off the titanium tips, but I guess that's just me. Still, she looks good.


Cheers.

Its just common sense dude, powder coating is great for wheels because they dont approach the heat of an exhaust.

When I got the tips done on my R8 I had them ceramic coated because I've seen first hand what happens to exhaust components when you powdercoat them. It cracks and flakes off

If thats the look you are going for, more power to ya

Not sure... It seems you need to go with a high-heat powder coating for the exhaust. But then again, they talk a lot about headers in this thread, which obviously get much hotter than the exhaust itself would. Time will tell!

Wheel temperatures can exceed 500 degrees F at the hub face. Not exactly cool...
