e93 Exhaust

Hey folks, first post here, been lurking for a few weeks now. I had a e46 cab a few years ago and I'm back into a M car finally after a few years of pain in a S4...with a e93 enroute I am thinking mods already. I'm taking delivery later on this week of a white on fox red loaded dct... pretty stoked at the moment.

Question about exhausts, I like the full Akrapovic Ti system. I've seen claims of upwards of 40hp @ the wheels on a dyno (their vid) without any other modification. Can anyone speak to this that has the system? Are the gains really that significant?

Also how loud is the system in the car with the top down, is there a loud drone at cruising speeds or does it behave itself unless you give it some stick?

thx all.

R.

My car has not been build yet but I have been looking for exhaust as well. Answers are here, just read the forum. Also search.

But in short - get the FULL Akra, along with a flash/tune that will keep the CEL from coming on.

No exhaust system will give 40hp at the wheels.
