▀▄ eas | MY11 M3 - Brembo 380mm GT, Akrapovic, Challenge Race+ X-Pipe [w Sound Clips]

As most will remember, Charles' 2011 M3 ZCP is no stranger to our facility. This M3's last visit consisted of the following items:

- AIB 3.0 High Powered LED Angel Eye system
- B&G Lowering Springs
- Rogue Engineering OCTANE Short Shifter



This visit was no exception, and Charles simply wanted more - the mod bug was back. Up on the menu was the following:

- Brembo GT 380mm4, 6-piston front calipers, 4-piston rear w/ stainless lines
- Challenge Race+ Stainless Steel X-pipe, omitting primary/secondary and resonators

As for the end result, we'll let the pictures do the talking:

Akrapovic system, w/ customized Gloss Black tips and hand-painted logos from IND:


AW e92 M3 Brembo Install:










Akrapovic Exhaust w/ Challenge RACE+ X-Pipe:
















After brakes were bedded, sound clips were taken. Audio/Video does this beast no justice, but the end result really makes for an amazing machine with an intoxicating exhaust note:

Thanks for the opportunity to be included again on your build, we hope you enjoy your M3 as much as we did during the installation.

Enjoy!

Looks amazing. I'm curious to how the lowering springs affect the comfort ride quality and the sport quality. I would imagine it would bounce more like it has no rebound damping.
