The Ultimate Exhaust Technology for your BMW
This application has been made with you, the enthusiast with the highest standards possible, in mind. Gaining a well deserved inline-6 howl with wonderfully aggressive yet smooth sounding overtones of resonant titanium as only the worlds most exclusive hyper cars have, the 1M system at wide open throttle endows the Motorsport tuned N54 with a seductive sound as it could only be with Akrapovic. Add the Wireless kit for exhaust valves, and with a touch of a button the system unleashes its full fury but with an amazingly naturally exotic-like snarl ... Another touch of the button, and the system returns to normal daily driving that is still exciting but non-intrusive.
Akrapovic Exhausts offer quality, sound, and performance unlike anything you have ever experienced. These systems are not ones of compromise in any fashion; with ultra light weight, amazing sound quality, never before seen build quality- all in a system that delivers unrivaled performance.
The titanium used to build your exhaust system is produced exclusively for Akrapovic. It is three times stronger and is more heat resistant than any other titanium product on the market, making it ideally suited to turbocharged applications. Through careful engineering, this system is still 19lbs lighter than the BMW OEM systems and lighter still than many other aftermarket systems! (less when used with Akra's downpipe)
Evolution System: Utilizing a single muffler arrangement, the Evolution system is designed to be modular and replace the entirety of the BMW system on your 1M from the downpipe back. All exhaust gases flow through the main body of the Akrapovic muffler, giving you a deeper rumble of an exhaust note compared to stock without any drone. Unbelievably smooth piping joins perfectly cut flanges that mate to your car just as the OEM system. As an benchmark, this system meets this system meets the European TÜV standards for noise. However, the muffler system is built in such a way that by replacing the standard blocking plate with the Akrapovic Wireless-Kit valve system, the driver is able to noticeably increase the volume of the exhaust at the press of a button. Once activated, the majority of the exhaust gases will route through the muffler bypass outlets improving power and sound.
To cap off your system, Akropovic offers either Carbon Fiber or Titanium Exhaust Tips. Both versions feature a spherical mounting system to allow for perfect alignment of all four tips. The carbon fiber tips are constructed at our in-house production facility using “prepreg” cloth that is vacuum-bagged and autoclaved. The result is an attractive yet extremely durable part. The tips are adjustable and removable for easy cleaning and a even a personalized fit to match your tastes.
All Akropovic systems flow as great as they look, otherwise, what would be the point of such a high end system: compared to others there isn't a more fitting match for BMWs greatest small M Car. Sound is one of the most popular reasons to buy an exhaust, but its nuances are difficult to capture in words. With all of this scrutinizing for details, fitment and performance, the unique properties of titanium aid in producing an exhaust note that is impossible to replicate in any other system on the 1M.

A word about Titanium exhaust from Akropovic themselves:
Not all titanium alloys are created equal; Akrapovič titanium exhaust systems are made from a proprietary titanium alloy. Although our alloy is considerably more expensive and difficult to form than the more common commercial alloys, it ensures a product that’s substantially more durable, dimensionally stable, and heat resistant. Unparalleled in quality, all Akrapovič products are designed without compromise to guarantee the highest in customer satisfaction.
