Used Akrapovic Photos

When looking through the forums every always post pictures of their new exhaust setup. I think we need to create a photo library of used (tracked) Akrapovic. I love the blue tinted circles with heavy track use. I will post mine up after I get home.

I'll strap a Go Pro camera on the back of some local cats. Should get some good undercar action shots that show off my Akra.

I too have akra povic and was wondering does that happen just after one track day? Or a accumulation of many? I'd like that blue hue look too

Should not have clicked on this thread this morning and seen that. I think I need therapy.

Great pics guys and that is a beautiful exhaust system and looks amazing after track time. If one were to pick an exhaust system for the E92 is this the way to go? How much would one set you back?

I think there was someone who torched their ti tips. It was only on the outside of the tips though. I saw that thread a long time ago.
