Akrapovic rear exhaust for the E82 1M combines a great sound, exceptional engineering, and advanced materials to form the ultimate expression of exhaust engineering.
This 1M performance exhaust replaces the rear muffler only (from the axle back). This is a bolt-on rear section that will fit to the stock center section or the optional Akrapovic Evolution center section. Note: exhaust tips are sold separately, see Related Items below.
This system is made from a proprietary titanium. This is not the imitation titanium found on cheap exhausts - this is real titanium alloy that is proprietary to Akrapovic and produced in their own foundry. This titanium is three times stronger than other titanium, 40% lighter than stainless steel, and will not rust or corrode.
Akrapovic sound is distinctly European and exotic. Engineers tune every tube, muffler, and tail pipe to complement the powertrain. Many other vehicle parameters, such as vehicle speed, rpm, exhaust gas temperatures, and vibrations, are measured and correlated with the sound output to avoid unwanted vibrations or resonances. They further tune the exhaust to produce a thoroughly refind exhaust note that complements and accentuates the BMW engine.
In addition to sound tuning, engineers monitor exhaust gas flow and backpressure to improve performance and horsepower without affecting fitment or sound. Prototypes go through flow testing, dyno testing, and road testing to ensure there is no loss of power and that the optimal blend of sound and performance is achieved.
