At the time I was a bit preoccupied playing with the GT3, so the M3 has been a bit neglected. I tried my best to hold out to see what exhausts comes out for the F8X, but I failed miserably. I threw an offer out to another forum member and after a week or so we settled on I think it was $5,150 for a full Akrapovic Evolution that he had a few miles on. I figured I couldn’t go wrong. If I don’t like the exhaust, I could easily sell it without losing a bunch of money.
I had my wife’s birthday lunch to go to, so my install post is a bit rushed. Install took a total of just shy of three hours. On a lift, it would have taken even less time. Now I’m no master mechanic but was easily able to install this exhaust without breaking out the instructions or consulting a DIY on the forum. It was super straight forward and very simple to do.
I don’t even have an opinion yet on the sound. At first thought though, it sounds WAY better than I thought it would. I’m going to run out today to shoot some video and get some better shots of it installed. Stay tuned.
