Akrapovič Evolution Line (SS) + Evolution Link Pipe Set (SS) - BMW M140i (F20, F21) 2016+


The Evolution Line system will take the BMW M140i to the next level of exhaust and performance tuning. Designed to increase power and torque while also reducing weight, this perfectly sculpted system is constructed from high-quality austenitic stainless steel and finished with hand-crafted carbon-fibre tailpipes. For the best flow of exhaust gases from the engine, the system features an arrangement of two central link pipes, which replace the single stock-pipe design. The sound is enhanced through the use of a dual-mode ECU-controlled valve, which delivers a stock-level tone at normal cruising and an exciting deep sporty note as the driving gets more spirited. It is fully EC compliant and features simple plug-and-play installation for ease of use.

Exhaust fits also on vehicles with X-drive.

Evolution Link Pipe Set (SS)

Made of austenitic stainless steel, these set feature a newly developed layout with two central link pipes replacing the single stock pipe.

Downpipe with Cat (SS)

The high-flow downpipe is constructed using high-quality stainless steel and, once fitted to the Evolution Line exhaust, it creates a complete system from the manifold to the tailpipes that will further enhance the performance figures: both the torque and power outputs. It incorporates a sporty catalytic converter – which is type-approved to meet ECE regulations, making the whole system ECE compliant – and so no remapping is needed for this performance upgrade. This optional downpipe produces an enhanced sound that delivers a pure racing emotion and fantastic feedback at high revs, without unwanted drone, making it suitable for everyday use.
