Akrapovič Evolution Titanium Link Pipe Set - F9x X5M, X6M

A pioneer in its field, Akrapovic is widely recognised as a highly innovative materials technology company. The brand is synonymous with the highest level of design, performance enhancement and the creation of an unmistakable deeply resonant exhaust sound and style.

Product Information

This full titanium accessory features complex parts cast in Akrapovič’s in-house foundry and is constructed from lightweight high-grade alloys to reduce weight. Combining the Evolution Link pipe set (Titanium) with the Slip-On Line (Titanium) exhaust on the F95 X5M and F96 X6M (incl. Competition models) creates a system that is perfectly in tune to deliver the very best aural experience in all driving modes. Akrapovič’s sound engineers have worked hard to produce a sporty V8 sound with an unmistakable Akrapovič character, while keeping it smooth and eliminating any drone, all designed for maximum everyday comfort. The sound is closer to that of a muscle car and delivers an exhilarating soundtrack. With a cast collector on the link pipe, where the gases from both sides of the engine mix, the link pipe provides a smooth flow for the gas and aids in providing the perfect sound as an ideal upgrade for the Slip-On Line (Titanium). Akrapovič has achieved power gains of 17.7 hp at 4,550 rpm and torque increases of 27.3 Nm at 4,550 rpm when tested on the Akrapovič dyno against a BMW X5M with a stock M Sport exhaust system for comparison. With the installation of this optional accessory, ECE type approval for the Slip-On Line (Titanium) exhaust system is not valid.

When installing the Akrapovič Evolution link pipe set, remapping the ECU is mandatory in order to prevent potential “check engine light” warning signals (OPF models only).

Suitable for F95 X5M & X5M Competition and F96 X6M & X6M Competition models with or without OPF/PPF.

Fantastic customer service from the team at Southern BM. Expertly repaired my 2011 323i and did so without the attitude and excessive cost of a dealer. Thank you and I will be back for all future servicing.

Andrew Brien @ Southern BM has been helping me for years with my BMWs - he is extremely astute and has a refreshingly customer-first mentality. I trust him to do the best work and only the best!

Touched base with Sean to do some coding work on my F85 X5M. Not only was he a whiz with the tech stuff, knowing his way around without any difficulty. Very rare to find someone like Sean - I happily rate and recommend this business for anyone.

I have used many mechanics over the years for the many different types of vehicles in our company fleet and southern BM is one of the very few workshops I can highly recommend. Andrew and his team are also really passionate about their work and it shows.
