I still think the Akra sounds the best but you don't need to spend that much money to improve the sound. Even some N55 mids will do the job. I'm partial to louder exhausts on the N54 though

These wheels will look awesome, you will definitely have a unique looking 1M in Oz.
Yes they are in 19s. 7.2kg fronts, 7.5kg rears 19x9 and 19x10s. Someone measured the stock wheels on the M3 and they are 25.5lbs fronts and 28lbs rears.

So, thats 4.4 x 2 = 8.8kg for the fronts, and 5.2x2 =10.4kg. Total savings 19.2kg of unsprung. .
