Just a couple quick pics during the install. Install went smooth and quality is what you would expect from Akra. I bought the system from X-PH and he had the best price hands down. I literally received the exhaust in 1 day.

That new Akra titanium shine looks so good. I still try to crawl under my car to wash it occasionally. Had mine 2 years now and really enjoy it. Congrats.

I was blown away with how nice the exhaust is when I unpackaged it.

Sounds perfect!

Awesome. Exhaust before tint is epic. Curious as to how much of a drop the M suspension gives. I don't track my cars, I'm more aiming for the perfect functionality and stance/aggressive look overall. The car does enough talking.

Does the akrapovic exhaust and the m performance exhaust for that matter fit the same on 19 or 20 m5s?

Your absolutely correct!! The stock exhaust sounds great.

The Akrapovic outshines the stock exhaust when the car is under load and the shifts!!🤤
