My Akrapovic F10 M5 Video....

Here is a video from today.

Please realize I have 489 miles on the clock and breaking her in properly: so all shifts were at 4000 rpm's

Enjoy.....

Ugh...this is killing me. I am trying really hard to keep the $$ in my wallet considering I have not heard it in person yet...

@Rob///M5 where is the guy in Southern California that claims he has it installed, but does not reply to any posts suggesting a meet to hear it?

Ditto. I think this is the best driving sound example of the Akrapovic. A bit dizzying to watch but still the best.

It's too bad it's still in the break-in period and under 4k rpm's only. I'd love to hear a screaming "follow-up" video after break-in.

I find these online videos don't give a good sense of the sound. It sounds a bit like a lawnmower on start up in this video.

Also I don't really care what it sounds like outside, I want to hear what it sounds like inside the cabin.

You've probably already seen these videos but just in case you haven't they do have some interior footage with the Akrapovic installed. Granted one also has the Gruppe-M intake installed but I'd assume the sound might be similar.

Also, might be up for questioning how much Active Sound plays a part in the interior sound.

@Bokke - Sorry if I'm thread jacking. Again, a great video you made. Look forward to another one.

Nice Video!

Love the tone of the exhaust.

How's the drone? I expect there is little knowing Akra.
