Holy Akra Slip On!

So I just got my slip on installed... it was an impulsive buy and boy am I happy. This is what the M3 should have sounded like from the factory.. its absolutely perfect. Construction is incredible... and boy oh boy was that thing light. Just amazing, I have no regrets.

+1 bud, that is how the stock m3 should sound.

Akra isnt punchy enough for me, but the sound is quality!

Post up some vids of that when you get it done, want to hear what that sounds like.

If you want LOUD just get cat by pass pipes too, will be raspy as ever

Hahah yes! It will still sing its relaxing exotic symphony as you push your food nice and deep into the carpet.

Akras one of my favourites, but weirdly I wouldn't have it in my car, always want something with a little more grunt.

I could see how some might think this, and I respect that. Personally I like a more subtle yet aggressive sound, I think the Akra fits the bill for that, its amazing how it doesn't drone.

I think if i went akra I would get the evo for the full power benefits and your right it does fit the bill for someone looking for that clean not raspy deep sound.

Just wish it had that sound and was a bitttt louder thats all.

I have the Akra Evo on mine and there is a certain section of the rpm's that sounds raspy and I honestly wish it wasn't there. I know some people like that rasp sound but I don't. In my opinion, the Akra is the best system out there, both performance, sound, and weight wise.
