    We have been selling and installing the Akrapovic Downpipes and Exhaust for the the R56 MINI and have to say these are not only art, but they perform too. I thought I'd start this thread to get some people that are actually using the Akrapovic parts to post their feedback, and maybe some sound clips could be made.

    We've had several people get these now, so I'd love to see some users post their experiences.

    I've seen a lot of the UK guys seem to be real happy with them.

    Do they have any drone at any RPM?

    I didn't have drone with the Akrapovic DP and stock exhaust, or with the Akrapovic DP and exhaust together.
    Other combos could have diff results.

    I've been looking at one of these for my R60. My only concern is the $300 "delete" option that's evidently needed on top of the $700 down pipe, so your check engine light won't come on. What's that all about?

    The Downpipe will fit the Clubman S.

    Don't forget guys there is a price increase going into effect on Jan one so order soon and save.

    Aww, don't cha remember me?

    I'm probably the only guy who jumped in on your catless down pipe "group buy". You still gave me a break on the price and earned yourself a repeat customer, thanks.

    I'm looking for a true 2 1/2" cat back exhaust for my Clubman S, not a 60mm, which is barely bigger than stock.
