30 newton meters of torque (about 22.1 lb-ft) and 7 hp increase. Nice

Sounds great. But the F1 car price tag is dumb. No thanks. Exhaust systems pricing has been out of control for years now.

8k for an exhaust is ridiculous.
The sound is a little bit better , but really not worth that price ...

I hope that BMW is gonna come out with an M-Performance system.

The last MPE for the F10 M5 was manufactured by Akrapovic and was the same price so don't expect too much there. Not sure if this will be the same on the F90 platform but expect the usual ///M tax.

Eberspächer Prototechnik GmbH is manufacturing the MPERFORMANCE exhaust out of Ti for the F90. The price point will be interesting. Love the Akra on my X5M but it was just $6k. $8,500 delivered is getting up there.

I’m really starting to like my Competition exhaust. Gets a little louder after it breaks in. Might just keep it.

It's likely the F90 MPE will be made by Akra, if I were to guess.

Thanks for the 411.

I have Akra on my current 15' M5 and really love the exhaust note and CF tips.

I've been thinking about going the same route on the F90 M5 Comp I have on order but I think I'm going to wait and see how I feel about the Comp Exhaust, especially after reading your post.

Given the MPE will not be Akra, it will be another option worth exploring.

I agree that $8500 is getting up there .....

Me too , I'm really satisfied with the M-Sport exhaust.

So much better than what we had on the X5M

Be sure to give the Comp exhaust 2000 miles to break in. The water from the exhaust cycle inside the pipes coats the fiberglass matting and it gets louder. It’s not Akra loud, but it’s good enough to keep. Also keep in mind the M5 cabin is heavily insulated. I had to park my X5M with Akra beside my M5 with Comp and stand outside while my wife revved each one to compare. X5M gets a lot of exhaust sound (good thing) inside the cabin. M5 is quiet.

Totally agree. X5M stock was terrible. Would buy the Akra again for it.

Thanks brother!

I'm going to heed your advice and see how I feel at the 2K mark.

Never fails to amuse me when akra releases and exhaust and people complain about an 8k pricetag for something when their car costs 120k.

buy something else?
