Anyone with only akra slip on in socal? (La area)

Was wondering if anyone had an akra slip on only setup and would be willing to let me hear/ride it.

Thinking of getting one. Ive seen a couple for sale threads but pretty old and awaiting response. Hoping the guy from 818 is still selling his for $2300.

Anyone willing to meet?

Or even better, anyone want to sell me their e90 akra slip on?

That's because it's an inevitable upgrade for most people who get the slip-on. Might as well get a used evo system from the start

Yep. My logic is this. Buy slip on first. Complete evo later. Never could justify the price tag of a full system BUT one at a time seems somewhat reasonable

Hence the reason i want to hear what only a slip on sounds like. Prob not that great??

One thing i did learn though, oem mod with test pipes sounds proper. Then i took the testpipes off, now i cant hear shit

Aren't the test pipes straight through to begin with? What did you replace them with to make it louder?

With test pipes it sounded AMGish. I swapped out test pipes for a stock xpipe - now its just on mute lol.

i have the slip-on. let me know if you'd like to meet.

its only slight louder than the exhaust. the difference isn't really in the volume, but instead the sound / note. and of course, there are cosmetic / weight benefits . . .

but yeah, someday i'll most likely convert to full evo to get the added performance gain.
