Akra CF or Titanium on BSM

I can't seem to decide which option to go with.
I'm leaning towards CF but on a BSM I do like how the stock pipes stand out, they do make an impression. Being all black will the detail be lost?

Those who went ahead with an Akra on your BSM, what tip did you go with?

Any pics of the two on a BSM?

Smiley, you know my thoughts, CF.

Why add bling to the car (I know the stock tips are chrome but they should have been black like 135s are to start with), if you are changing the exhaust go with CF IMO.

+1 - I had a BSM 135i and the black tips look great. I went with CF without regrets on my VO but I would think it would suit the BSM very well.

However, if you seen how I dress, I like using different shades of the same colour. .

I went with the CF tips for my BSM and I am very, VERY happy with the result.
It's true that I also got a CF rear diffuser from Revozport which accents the CF look, but I had the exhaust installed by itself before I got the diffuser and it looked great too!

+1 Just wish it was available in non CF. So tacky IMHO unless actually functional. Does this diffuser weigh less than the stock diffuser?

Without under tray should be lighter, but since it is only sold with under tray and assuming you would like to install that piece to have any probable aero function, that can't be really lighter than stock difuser as a kit, not enough to make any difference anyway.

It is available in matt cf if that matters, looks better than gloss imo, go to their web site for pictures. But that (matt or gloss) also depends your other exterior mods if any and adds to cost too.

My imagination agrees! Any pictures out there of a BSM 1M sporting the titanium setup? I can post some once I have the system received/ installed. I opted for the titanium tips and placed my order this morning. Evo System W/O wireless kit and W/O downpipes.
