Seems to hint that they're made in Slovenia by Akrapovich? It's possible that they're a cheaper Akra sold under another name?

Says that they're Titanium - if so, then cost is not an issue? They also look heavily baffled - road legal in Europe? I'm familiar ith a lot of European brands but have never heard of this make?

They look decent - and less than half the cost of the Akra's. hmmm

which strikes me as the 2nd best reason for getting them. the first thing i did with my akras was remove their bit of marketing. :nod

so they look good, they probably sound good, they're cheap -- i hope this guy makes a killing. i would have supported him had they been out 10 months ago.

the price of akras is criminal. but they've got the marketing thing well worked out. viva competition!

I just got and fitted a set of "Wings" Silencers. Great fit and finish and an even better price!!http://www.bmwgs.com/forums/images/icons/cooltu.gif

I got the Alloy version as the titanium is just for looks really.... same guts, different wrapping so the weight saving will not be much extra.

They do come from Slovinia and I live in France. Took 7 days to get here and 30mins to fit. Real nice deep sound and I have not had the DBKillers out yet!

Go for these. At the price you cant loose.
As for them being a 'povic copy, just about all cans are the same so they are all copys. At one third the price of 'povics and half the price of Remus, that will do nicely, thank you very much.http://www.bmwgs.com/forums/images/icons/Laughing.gif

Do they have spark arrestors????

Nope. They are a road can with maybe a few unmade passes thrown inhttp://www.bmwgs.com/forums/images/icons/Wink2.gif

I'm probably going to order up a pair of the aluminum mufflers this week. Waiting for a price to get back to me. The titanium cans were around $600USD that included shipping to the US.

You can also check out the Wings web page at

http://www.wings-silencers.com/#

Still really pleased with minehttp://www.bmwgs.com/forums/images/icons/Laughing.gif
I used a service called Escrow to pay for them as I did not know if the good would ever turn up. The service costs a percentage of the transaction. In my case it was €13.60.
See them at http://www.escrow-europa.com/
They take bank transfers/credit cards etc.

Marovic may also be making some other parts for the 950http://www.bmwgs.com/forums/images/icons/cooltu.gif but cant seem to attach/add a picturehttp://www.bmwgs.com/forums/images/icons/icon13.gif

Still, not Akra's.

Not developed under "Dyno testing", that's what draws me back constantly...

Yes, made in Slovenia. Just like Akrapovic's.

US Importer...

I've got quite a few systems coming already!
