Akrapovic 1M tips - alternatives?

Hi there.

I'm new to this forum, so I don't know if this has been discussed before.

So I really like the Akrapovic exhaust system and I intend to buy one. What I don't really like is the finish of their tips.

Carbon fiber tips have this small piece of metal with the brand's name-- not comparable with the nice finish Akra did for the M5 or the M6 exhausts

the Akra 1M Titanium finish is a bit dull in my opinion -- Akrapovic offers a polished finish for the exhaust tips on the M5 or M6 models, which would look amazing on the 1M.

Has any one of you considered buying the exhaust without tips and custom make yours??

If so, which manufacturer or shop could do something nice with a polished finish?

Thanks in advance for your inputs.

Alex

Akrapovic is amazing, but i installed a meisterschaf rear section on my baby, and the sound, fit and look is crazy! Compared to akra, the rear section is plenty! It's non resonated, check it out on youtube, but 1000 times better in real life.

Good luck with your shopping

I'm now seriously considering this option. The meisterschaf seems like a real piece of art. Any idea on how much is it?

Also is this way louder than the Akra, cause I like noise, but too much noise might not be what I'm looking for.
