Thanks Tom, Robert and EAS!

Love the sound and the way it drives now. SO much better than the stock experience. Can't wait to get the intake done next week to finish it off!!

Man that Akropovic does look sexy as hell, but it's easy to see why it doesn't make much power. Lol!

That is one sharp looking and great sounding M5! I really like your choice of color and going with the stainless tips? Thanks for all the pics and video!

What size are those tips? How do you like the Akra sound on start-up and from inside he car?

I believe the claim is 10hp for the Akrapovic?
The main reason why it doesn't make "much power" is probably not visible in the photos...


Clue; It has to do with the number e24 that is on the muffler
