But Akrapovic will be sold and installed by the dealers (and other vendors) and will retain full warranties here in Sweden.
I'm guessing that goes for more countries in Europe too.

If AC Schnitzer have one, Remus should as they make them.
They often sound good. But I they way at least as much as the stock exhaust.

Interesting, judging by the description, it sounds like they will be using an OEM-style exhaust valve. I haven't heard an Akrapovic exhaust that I didn't like, whether it's on a car or motorcycle. While I'm pleased with my M Performance exhaust, I think the car could use just a little more growl...I might be tempted to swap it out for the Arkapovic if the price isn't too bad. I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing the finished product.

agree, the sound could be a little more. But it's hard to justify the exhaust being 10% of the msrp of the car, for me at least.

That is why it is SS only and not Ti I guess. Not too many 335 owners would...

It is BMW approved (sold by BMW dealers here and retains full warranty) so it uses a valve as the OEM system (plugs in to the same connection) so the cruising speed where they measure retains stock level but improved sound. It will open up more when accelerating.

Are there any other exhaust system that is catback for the F30 335?

I would also like to know the answer to this question. It seems doubtful as even the M Performance Exhaust needs cutting, no?

Are you sure it isn't?

Akrapovic makes the new performance exhaust for the F10/11 M5/6 so they do have a very close relationship. At my local dealer I can by Akrapovic exhausts for the 1M and the E9x M3 too.
