Akrapovic wireless kit what for?

what for?, i have ordered the evolution system, but i would like to know about the wireless kit, is it like the one in the PORSCHE PANAMERA that will allow me to change the sound from quiet to sport? or only to avoid the check engine light?

This is a quote from Akrapovic's website:
"...the muffler system is built in such a way that by replacing a blocking plate with our Wireless Kit valve system the driver is able to noticeably increase the volume of the exhaust at the press of a button. Once activated, the majority of the exhaust gases route through the muffler bypass outlets."

Hope this helps

I've clarified this with Akrapovic directly. Without the wireless kit, the system will effectively be "muted" as the block off plate will be retained. Alternatively - I'm sure one can just modify the exhaust to simply remove the block off plate completely without the need for the wireless kit ... we just need to get our hands on one of these systems, once they arrive in the US.
