Here is a dance-off between the stock exhaust system for the BMW M4 and its aftermarket potential replacements from Hamann and Akrapovic.

Without a doubt the stock exhaust is the more tame one, while the other two are loud and with a deeper growl. The loudest and deepest sounding of the three is the Hamann exhaust, but some may like the Akrapovic for its more civilized sound. Unfortunately the video reviewer doesn’t take the three cars on the road and record the sound, a more realistic comparison.

A good exhaust system and its sound stands out through a series of downshifts, tunnel drives and backfires, for example, so a more extensive test drive is in order before deciding on what the best exhaust system for the M4 is.

We haven’t had a chance to experience the Hamann system, but we did spend a few minutes with the Akrapovic unit at Nurburgring last year. Sadly, in a parking lot also.

      But thats a v8.. and NA this is different, hamann in person sounds amazing. youtube doesnt pick up the note stop hating idiot

        Btw S65 is NA V8 is E92 ///M3. Rode in a few, drove in a few. Seen them at Cars & Coffee & other shows revving the sh*t out of that TwinPower i6. From Akro to various Other Manufacturers. N54’s is an i6 TT sherlock. Like i said, puts these bad boys to shame. Althought There was one F80 M3 with Meisterschaft, that sounded pretty damn good ‘in person’.

          Meisterschaft has a reputation to take some ideas from Eisenmann. So I heard

          • Icebreaker says:

            I think people shouldnt compare a NA V8 to the the new engine. if it was a V8 biturbo in the M4 or twin turbo V8 then yes it should be compared to the NA V8.

          • Crux says:

            Perhaps… They totally killed it with the E60 V10 full exhaust kit. Nothing like, people break their necks even if you hear it a block away.
