An exhaust system is a mod done by many to not only increase power, but also improve the sound. This was exactly the case when we fitted this Austin Yellow F82 M4 with an Akrapovic Exhaust System, giving the car an iconic Akrapovic sound! Upon opening the valves and giving a couple revs, the owner of this M4 was most certainly pleased. Akrapovic rates even this slip on line of systems at about a 7.3 horsepower increase at 4,400 rpm and a 12.8 lb-ft torque increase at 2,350rpm. The slip on system weighs approximately 6.6 lbs lighter than the stock muffler section. With these specifications, there is definitely a gain in performance with the Akrapovic system. Coming with the Akrapovic system are the iconic carbon fiber tips. To match these tips, carbon fiber front splitters, and carbon fiber M Performance rear spoiler, the owner decided on adding some carbon fiber mirror caps.
