agree but not all can afford the full akra when time of purchase... most settle for the slip on then later point in time they just buy the alternative which is challenge street or race... and if they want to go crazy. THIS... i guess to some its all about savings or what they can afford. im just saying this cause ive talked to several M owners that hey why buy something when you can get it somewhere cheaper might not be titanium but hey 5-10pnds savings does not really affect on street driving.

to be honest im one of those people... dont like spending 5k on an exhaust if i can mix and match to get the best results for street use. im cheap and want the best. LOL

dont quote me but hey its just my opinion. dont get me wrong i totally agree on what your saying.

i know some people trashed the idea of going full catback cause of the noise. its just not drivable.

I think with the AKRA set up... i think this is the best exhaust combination.
Do you get drone with Straight pipe+akra rear?
Is it too loud?
