How do you differentiate those two from each other by visual aspects?
V1 is notorious for cracking where the tips come out of the muffler. That problem has been solved with the V2 which includes visible titanium bracing elements welded between the tail pipes and the muffler.

Researched them all, having owned a 17 ZCP with and without MPE, and not CS with and with Akra, the Akra gets my vote overall. Itís about 20% quieter than the MPE, but the sound is better. Deeper, fuller sounding. Less rasp and outright aggression compared with the MPE also.

This makes the wheels more equally flush with the fender. Stock the rears are already closer so you don't need as much spacer.

My dealer said mine is actually a v3 not sure what additional differences there are but the main correction is as described with additional support to prevent cracking.

Iím actually reverse to you. 10F and 12R.

Hereís some other shots from my build thread showing the gap.

Lots of fun. In particular yesterday. Even keeping to under 6000rpm as Iím not yet broken in, this car is clearly more comfortable, compliant and capable than the M3 Competition it replaced in my garage.

















The Charity car show was sponsored by a friend of mine who also happens to be my detailer and XPEL installer. So my car was setup with a few new, slightly more exotic cars that he has worked on in recent times.

Had mine almost a year now and I’m absolutely overjoyed with it.







First car I’ve not modified or even felt the urge to, with the exception of a CG valve controller, and having been wary of getting CCB’s I have to say I wouldn’t want a car without them now!

I tried to make an exhaust vid, unfortunately the exhaust wasn't heated up here:

Even though it's a freebie AW always looks good. I see the banner on the top of your windshield, do you work for Bert Smith BMW?

I wash the car at my house since I have a pressure washer then I would drive to the car wash to use the air gun and they also have spot free rinse which prevents water spots. Frozen paint is really easy to maintain and I daily mines.

Forget about driving a mile to the car wash to use a blower. Purchase a leaf blower from Walmart, I use it every time i wash my car.

Did you do the emblem yourself? The IND black emblems look high quality but I can't justify that much for just an emblem. How much was this? Link?

It was $25 from ebay. Pretty good quality
