Akrapovic Exhaust with Wireless, WITHOUT downpipes.

Hey Guys,

I'm about to buy a used Akra Evo exhaust for my 1M, but it doesn't come with the akra downpipes. I'm wondering if it's still a satisfactory improvement over stock, or if the downpipes pretty much make the exhaust worth its high price... What do you guys think?

Thanks for your guys' input!

Depends on what you like.

To my ears (and those of many others), the sound of the Akra axle-back for the 1M + N55 midpipes is the right sound for this car. I keep my stock downpipes. Also more chances to pass CO2 emissions control.

Hey Artemis - thanks for the input - by "Akra axle-back", do you mean the non-evolution akra?

What about if I'm stuck with the evolution Akra? My friend offered it to me used and I took the offer, as it was a good deal. Just didn't come wiith downpipes, that's all. Thoughts?

Thanks!

Should be OK.

Cold start:
