Finally got a chance to pick up the beast today and wow what a difference!

I believe this is the first full front to back unit to be delivered and installed in the US. Someone had received there's a few days before mine but with no exhaust tips.

Special thanks to Tag Motorsports for getting this on priority and Eurotech Motorsports for performing the install!

Link below showing some rev's with valves closed and open. Video does this no justice... ridiculous in person!

Do you plan to turn off the fake exhaust sound? Thats my dream someday. If anybody knew I was driving around listening to a recorded exhaust note they'd think Im rather stupid.

Who's the asshole that dreamed that shit up. Lets find that motherfucker.

I had my coder turn off active sound drove around the block and had him turn it back on. I have an Eisenmann exhaust and the car was very very quiet without it on inside. I left it on when I thought for sure I would leave it off.

It sounds good. I mean not a massive difference since the car is built like a tank but you do hear it. For some reason the biggest change is in efficient mode where it's not loud but just right inside. I always leave my sunroof open driving around so I hear it very and love the sound the car makes now.

Cold starts are crazy though even with the windows up. I have a indoor garage with a 14" thick concerte podium deck and it still shakes the crap out of my kitchen which is above it every morning

Pretty much all of my starts are cold starts (indoor garage at home, and underground garage at the office), and it's one of my favorite parts of the day lol.

Comparing this sound to my Akrapovic F06 M6 I am not that impressed.

M6 with Akra’s has a deep bassy humm whereas this sounds almost “tinny” like the M4.

Perhaps YouTube videos don’t give you the depth and accuracy of the sound?

I had m6 with akro and heard new m5 with akro in person.
It sounds much better. Hence I ordered one as well now for my m5.

I have the Eisenmann race, it's way too loud for my taste.
If anyone interested in one day used one let me know.
I'll made some videos and will post it the classified for sale.

I don't know but that sounds just makes me happy.

Id be pulling up to people at red lights or while driving and revving just to terrorize them.

Its like the sound is screaming get the F*#% out of the way!

Without it, the car sounds like a neutered Chihuahua.

Yes like I said the videos online do this no justice. Definitely not a "tinny" sound at all...it's the exact opposite and pretty violent.

I've heard an M6 with an Akra and my RS7 had Akra plus downpipes. This is better than both.

Also for those familiar with Akra, the system gets better as you put more miles on it once broken into. This clip was taken right after install.

Wantet to visit ( Akrapović ) the place 2 times, where everything started in Slovenia... I have some family that lives there.
Always rushing when I am in Europe because most mine family lives in Germany and end up spending most time there

Cost??? Your life!

No really what does this system cost? Such a shame that "M" cars have to manipulated to make them sound like performance cars. I understand watering down the lower lines and having mperf parts, but there is no misunderstanding when one purchases an M car, they want the aggressive shit! Will never understand this
