Overall I am happy with the look and sound of this system. I thought that the tips were A.) a little big and B.) stuck out a bit too much, but the carbon fiber tips on a black car kinda blend in, glad I did not get the polished tips, I think it would be too much. As far as how far they stick out, they really don't seem to be that bad. They still kinda blend into the rear of the car.

A little drone in the lower rpm's: 1500-1700 or so, at about 1800 rpm you are driving out of it.

Nice exhaust note. Very deep and it has a lot of bass. I could not believe it when I first fired it up...I was like, where did all this bass come from?! When the valves/flaps are open the ground shakes. Mucho bass and sound!





A few(!) pics from today! (video up soon!)


Old' factory exhaust:




Factory can next to the Akrapovic:

Idle clip sounds like crap...hard to get the sound with my point and shoot.

Very nice, although the tips look a little large for my taste.

Would you tell me the specifications for your Breed wheels and what tires/sizes your running?

Thanks.

I have nothing negative to say...
Bad Ass car, excellent sound and I'm a fan of non run-of-the-mill mods.

PS...license plate is justified :thumbsup:

Scott,

Great to hear you like the Akrapovic system.

Thanks for your business and taking the time to post the pictures and video. ( I sent you an email about the pictures, would love to use them on my site;))

We have both the Stainless and Titanium systems in stock of anyone else wants one.

I have had other folks tell me the tips are too big for their taste, but personally I think they look great. (old adage, "beauty is in the eyes of the beholder")

Thanks again for the review,

Jim:cheers:

Those look so damn nice!! Thanks for the info & PM.

Do you know if they had to change to a lower offset for the wider wheel/tire?
