For John C

Have you seen this?

'Maximum emotionalism'?

Awful, that sort of nonsense makes me cringe.

In fairness, it does read as though it's been translated from one language to another by someone who speaks neither and only has access to a Collins Gem! And I guess it's better to try to beef up a soundtrack acoustically than by making stuff up and playing it through the speakers.

(But 'maximum' should be reserved, I reckon, for the first Gallardo Superleggera or Lexus LFA.)

I had to check it wasn't April 1st!

I am not sure what it does even after reading it a couple of times. Is it enhancement of the noise through the speakers (in which case forget it) or is it a sports exhaust which sounds good with the window down and to passers by (in which case, I might be interested).

I tell you what would interest me more would be an exhaust with a tailpipe on either side of the car instead of the two at one side. Apro...vitz (can't spell it) make a system for the 4 series with the pipe either side but it is a difficult to stomach 1500 plus fitting.

Acrapovic? I didn't think they did systems for diesels?  ACS do one, I've just looked and its 1700...but at least it has round pipes unlike the one for mine.

From what I've read, I think the BMW system is a proper valved sports exhaust.

Exactly what kind of exhaust do you put on an i3?

Who on here is a frequenter of Home Depot????? Long way to go for a pack of turbo twinthread woodscrews.
