I wish Dixis was still in business. Love the Ti muffler I have on my E46 M3 and I picked that up for $1700 shipped brand new. No reason why the Akrapovic should cost more than that.

Edit: nevermind the fact the TIPS are almost as much as the damned exhaust. Ugh.

After some digging the math is starting to make more sense.

The M3 system is $3500 and the 1M system is $3460. The M3 system includes the tips, the 1M cost was figured plus tips.

The M3 system requires more material to produce, given that it has two separate mufflers. That being said the volume of 1M exhaust sales is *much* more limited. I can see the argument for it costing the same to recoup R&D costs but a lot of the exhaust should be similar to the 135i system so reduce that argument's validity by 50% until the systems are seen side by side.

I wish it was a bit cheaper but with a smaller market, your unit cost goes up.

EDIT: All the above considered, I personally think the tips are 100% marketing pulled from their motorcycle business. There's NO need for the tips to have fancy T-clamp-slip-on crotch-rocket-whatever connections to the muffler. Weld the damn things on and cut $1200 off the price!

I had a chance to be hands-on with the M3 exhaust and the Carbon Fiber tips. It is absolutely gorgeous. If ever there was an exhaust worth this cost, this is it.

I'd love to see some shots of the actual Akrapovic 1M muffler and system off the car. Can we get those?

for 1400$ you should be getting platinum plated tips.

See my edit above in response to this post! The exhaust sounds good enough that I'm honestly considering buying just the muffler and having some slip-on tips fabricated. I'm sure I can get them for less than $1400!

If you find a place to get CF tips made up be sure to start a group buy!
