Akra Evo vs Gruppe M Exhaust

Gruppe M is more expensive than the akra evo exhaust but the akra's hp gain is much more than that of gruppe m. which is better?

Of the two you listed? Akra.

Does that matter? No, it is subjective.

I have the Akra Evo on my M3. I have no experience at all with the Gruppe M exhaust. Based on this, I would say the Akra is undoubtedly the better system.

i dont even think theres a handful of people on here that are runnign the gruppe m, to even fairly compare the two systems together... that being said, the sound each system makes are all personal preference, but the only comparison between the two is prolly who has better quality titanium and welds!

I would assume Akra is the better system, but I have not heard Gruppe M. I dislike the Evo systems sound and that alone would not keep me from buying it again. I do however love the sound of the Akra axel back paired with a stainless steel catless resonated x pipe.

I agree with that. But as well I know people who heard the akra and dislike the sound an prefer something deeper and more roar. Buy what u like but fin few local guy with unit installed and let your ears decide.
Good luck.

What exactly are you asking when you say "better"? What are you looking for in an exhaust?

There needs to be a new rule instated that doesn't allow threads to be created until certain amount of posts have been reached
