The Akrapovic brand is synonymous with precision, innovation, and a deep understanding of acoustic refinement, qualities that align flawlessly with the BMW XM. Both brands stand for excellence and pushing the boundaries of what is possible in their respective fields. The Akrapovic Exhaust enhances not just the vehicle’s performance but its persona, imbuing the already impressive BMW XM with a more profound, aggressive auditory presence and refined power output. Opting for the Akrapovič Exhaust System to experience enhanced performance, superior sound, meticulous design integration, all resulting in significant enhancement to both aesthetics and vehicle dynamics:


Superior Sound Quality: Akrapovič is renowned for its mastery in tuning exhaust notes to create rich, immersive sounds that complement a vehicle's power. The Slip-On Line enriches the BMW XM’s auditory experience, from a refined purr at low revs to a robust roar under acceleration, making every journey all the more thrilling.


Sophisticated Design & Weight Reduction: Crafted from titanium and carbon fiber, the Akrapovič Exhaust System not only boosts the BMW XM's visual allure but also significantly reduces its overall weight. This decrease enhances the vehicle’s agility & increases its speed, making it a desirable upgrade for performance enthusiasts.


Exceptional Performance Enhancement: The Akrapovič system is designed to maximize the power and efficiency of the BMW XM’s engine. It offers notable increases in horsepower and torque, contributing to a more responsive and exhilarating driving experience. This is coupled with an acoustic profile that intensifies the vehicle's presence on the road, producing a deeper, more resonant sound that evolves dynamically with the engine's performance.


Seamless Integration: Designed to perfectly align with the BMW XM’s existing systems, the Akrapovič Exhaust System ensures straightforward installation without the need for extensive modifications. This ease of integration preserves the integrity and balance of the vehicle’s original engineering.


Regulatory Compliance: The Slip-On Line maintains EC/ECE type approval, adhering to rigorous European standards. This ensures that the system not only enhances performance but also meets regulatory requirements, providing peace of mind alongside improved dynamics.


Slip-On Line (Titanium)

The Akrapovic Slip-On Line (Titanium) exhaust system is engineered specifically for the BMW XM, offering a perfect blend of style, performance, and sound enhancement. This exhaust system is constructed from high-grade titanium, ensuring durability and a significant reduction in weight. It not only adds to the visual appeal with its sleek, modern design and hand-crafted carbon-fibre tailpipes but also enhances the vehicle's overall performance.


Key Features & Benefits:


  • Superior Sound Enhancement: The exhaust system features integrated acoustic reflectors designed to reflect the external sound toward the cabin and enhance the overall acoustic experience of the Akrapovic exhaust. The dual exhaust valves on each side of the muffler create a sound that evolves with the engine's RPM by tailoring gas flow. From a smooth, harmonic tone at lower speeds to a robust V8 rumble at mid-range, before reaching a crescendo of high-frequency, sporty sound at higher revs, it promises an exhilarating auditory experience.
  • Performance Specs: Not only does the Akrapovic Slip-On Line (Titanium) produce an exceptional auditory experience, but it also significantly enhances the performance of the BMW XM. When tested on the Akrapovic dyno against a BMW XM Label with an M exhaust system, it delivers power increases of 10.3 HP and 9.3 lb-ft of torque, both achieved at 5,750 rpm. These enhancements boost the vehicle's already responsive nature. Furthermore, the exhaust system offers a plug-and-play installation, eliminating the need for remapping while maintaining EC/ECE type approval, ensuring ease of integration and compliance.
  • Enhanced Build Quality & Engineering: Another striking feature of BMW XM system is the engineering excellence and build quality. Each vital component, from the valve housings to the exhaust collectors, is meticulously crafted in Akrapovic’s dedicated titanium foundry, ensuring unparalleled precision and quality. This premium exhaust system features two striking sets of tailpipes, each comprising a robust titanium inner sleeve coupled with a hand-crafted carbon-fibre outer sleeve. These elements not only enhance the visual appeal but also contribute to the system’s exceptional durability and heat resistance.
    Moreover, the Slip-On Line (Titanium) achieves a significant reduction in weight, being 11.35 kg (50.7%) lighter than the standard stock exhaust system of the BMW XM. This weight saving is critical in enhancing the vehicle’s agility and performance, providing a more responsive and engaging driving experience. This commitment to reducing weight without compromising on strength or performance whilst also enhancing aesthetics underscores Akrapovic's leadership in exhaust system design and manufacturing.

Evolution Link Pipe Set (Titanium)

For those seeking to maximize their BMW XM's performance, the optional Evolution Link Pipe Set (Titanium) is an additional upgrade that extends the capabilities of the Slip-On Line. This component reduces the system's weight by a total of 18.2 kg (63.5%) and offers substantial gains in power and torque—up to 35.1 HP and 35.2 lb-ft, both achieved at 5,150 rpm respectively. A special X-connection, cast in Akrapovic’s in-house foundry, allows gases from both sides of the engine to mix, enriching the auditory output for an even more pronounced sporty sound. This setup is designed for plug-and-play installation, eliminating the need for remapping. It is important to note that the Evolution Link Pipe Set is intended for use on closed-course competition circuits only and its installation renders the EC/ECE type approval for the Slip-On Line (Titanium) invalid.
