X3M Competition - Akrapovic Muffler and Midpipe installed (with video / sound clip)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Yesterday I picked up an Akrapovic Muffler, and Akrapovic Midpipe from European Auto Source, huge thanks to Kevin for snagging this for my X3M Competition.

It is very nicely made, and was very simple to install, also it fit perfectly.

The sound in all modes, has improved in depth, louder yes, but not obnoxious.

There is no surprise that my chick is terrible at filming, so any sound clip that I do have, sucks. SO I will get something better in a day or so.

But for now, here are some pictures.

Nice and congrats!!!
I wonder why Akrapovic USA told me that I can't have the mid-pipe shipped to CA because it is not CARB approved, but EAS can bring it to Cali for you.
Hmm, I have to talk to my people tomorrow, lol.

It went out of state first then made its way here, I am from out of state, and this car is in California for a bit.

Added mine 2 weeks ago but have to upload videos into vimeo to share. Agree it is fantastic and I purchased the midpipes as well. Again thanks to our famous Ben r33_RGSport for the sale.

Are the downpipes unequal as the S55? Sounds like it is.
