well it looked and sounded great, though VERY loud. i'm not familiar with what pieces it's available in and how they sound, but the setup on that car is really very loud. pretty sure it's catless too.

Question I have for BMW is, why don't they offer Akrapovic as a factory accessory when they do for their motorcycle lineup?

obviously this is what everyone was saying as they were showing off the moto gp car (that and a few debates about how akrapovic is pronounced haha).

edit: if anyone's unsure, i was told by the akropovic rep that it's pronounced "uh-CROP-oh-vitch", not "akra-PO-vick"

So how is it pronounced? A-kra-po-vik?

emphasis on the second syllable ("crop"), and it ends in "vitch" (rhymes with "witch")

That sounds fantastic. We can't wait to get our first system in.

We are a dealer for Akrapovic exhaust systems. Akrapovic offers both the slip-on or evolution exhaust for the 1M. They are also offering down pipes so you can have a complete Akrapovic exhaust system from the turbo back!

The evolution is from the DP back(will replace the two secondary cats) and will not trigger CEL as the main cats are not removed.

The Slip-on is from the axle back only.
