best for e92 m3 2012,help me

Like topic, right now, I have problem with choose exhaust from Dinan free flow, Akra evo, Akra gt4, and M Performance. Well, I listened many videos, but it really depends on the quality of the video, and I've never heard any of those in person, would you guys give me some advice? My m3 just for daily drive, not for race. And I'd really want to mod my m3 like vorsteiner did.

I like the sound of akra and dinan. I'm not sure why people have a fascination with the MPE, so raspy!

I DD my m3 and live in a really uptight neighborhood and I have the Akra Evo. I have yet to get any complaints and have had it on the last two M's I have had. Its the best exhaust available IMO and its not to loud but loud when you want it to be.

the best bet is to try and hear any exhaust you are considering in person before you buy. You can't go off youtube vids they are not even close to the actual in person sound.

Do you have any idea about akra evo + gt4 catless, is it kind of new version or upgrade of akra evo base?

If you are looking for best of both worlds (loud and quite) you can take a look at our unit. I know it is hard to tell what a exhaust sounds like from a video, so we offer a demo program, which allows you to try out our unit before you buy it. Let me know if you are interested.

Don't listen to those other guys, they don't know what they're talking about. Everyone knows the MPE is the best exhaust for the M3! Seriously, you gotta go with what does it for you. Personally, the Akra does nothing for me in the sound dept. I like just the plain old MPE way better than a full Evo. Different strokes ya know, way too subjective to tell you what is best.

Dont listen to any of these guys because cant none of us tell you what you like, you gotta figure that out for yourself. Best bet is attend a get together (or several) and give these things a listen in real life. Most owners I have met are happy to take a prospective buyer out on a demo of their pipes so they can hear it on the road and you absolutely should do this because free revs in a parking lot don't tell the story. Your gonna want to know if the exhaust drones, if so how much and where. Does the thing set off car alarms on your test drive and if so are you sure you want to deal with irate neighbors or the interest of the law?

Do yourself a favor, take a little time to hear them in person. Your in Dallas, you can be there are owners there with these things on their car. If you don't find a get togther down in the section for your area post up and ask. I would bet you get some response.

Eisenmann Street Cause I got one

It's quiet and civil down low. It roars with a nice throaty deep roar at high rpm.
