Mein Auto: 2013 HP4 "Competition"
HP4 Akrapovic exhaust dilema

I just bought a HP4 "Comp", well i'm waiting for it actually. So I wanted to know the situation with the Akrapovic that comes with the bike. After speaking with the Akrapovic they were unfamiliar with the proprietary OEM deal with BMW, or didn't want to tell me. but basically what I had gathered from a BMW NA rep that there is Akrapovic HP4 "Power Kit" race only exhaust evo line.(2615.00) obviously without the cat convert and maybe a bigger diameter tubing not sure. but where it gets tricky is that it says you need a new control unit (868.42) and an enabling code (960.66). So your at around 4300 and some change. But then they recommend you get the HP calibration kit (149.00) and enabling code (2406.96) which allows you to program different maps. Despite its name its not just one code its programable. So now its a tad bit shy of 7K for all of this. If you are on the track then you would definitely get use out of the Calibration Kit. If your like me and want to get the most out of your bike without cracking cases then the Akrapovic race kit will make more power and sheds weight without the cat. You could go with PC V or Bazzaz instead of the HP electronics but it will only hurt the value of your HP4 if you were to sell it. And since no one has the bike yet I'm sure the HP electronics are the only way to go as of now and there family. Hope this helps anyone that was wondering about the OEM Akrapovic
