I would go with the thermal coated Macht Schnell dp's. The diameter, coating and quality of the product is what would sway me.

There are no downpipes that are full 3 inches as they will have to neck down to 2.5 at the flange.

Akrapovic Downpipes are very well made, very easy to install and are 5.5lbs lighted than stock pipes.

Here they are along with the other parts that complete Akrapovic Evolution system.











I'll post more pictures and video clips on Monday.

Aleks.
