Armytrix Exhaust Makes BMW 530i’s Four-Pot Sound Like A V8 14

The problem, if you can call it that, with four-cylinder engines is that they generally sound rather ho-hum, even in cars that far from under-powered, like the 252 PS (248 HP) all-new BMW 530i.

If you want to talk performance, this premium saloon in rear-wheel drive configuration (there’s an xDrive AWD, too) will get you from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 6.2 seconds. It will also max out at 250 km/h (155 mph), which, for most people, is more than enough. But even with that performance, the sound is nothing to write home about.

That’s where custom exhaust manufacturers like Armytrix come into play. They can help a “lowly” 2.0-liter four sound throaty, providing plenty of crackles and bangs, as you’d expect to hear in something with a lot more power and, probably, a higher cylinder count.

As we’ve seen before, the tuner’s Valvetronic exhaust helps the driver decide when the car should sound more aggressive via a smartphone app, so you can blend in with the crowd when you feel like it and make a statement when you’re in the mood. Sounds like the best of both worlds, right?


Widebody BMW M6 Gets Its Bark On Thanks To Armytrix Exhaust 2

When stock, the BMW M6 is not one of the loudest cars in the world. It makes nice sounds, don’t get us wrong, but you won’t exactly hear it coming from a mile away.

So if that’s your idea of an upgrade, few can get it done as well as tuner Armytrix, who made this widebody M6 sound absolutely violent.

Of course, it’s not just the exhaust note that stands out on this car. Aside from the fender extensions, this M6 has also been bagged, sitting a heck of a lot closer to the road than most BMW owners would be comfortable with.

Overall, this is an extremely aggressive car, the type you’re more likely to see at SEMA rather than in somebody’s garage. Still, we’re pretty sure its owner doesn’t necessarily feel that way.

As for performance, while it may not be as quick as a stock model (unless it’s got more power), its factory 560 horses and 500 lb-ft (680 Nm) of torque should still deliver plenty of punch in a straight line.


Armytrix Turns Volume Up On 4-Cylinder W205 C-Class 13

If you own a Mercedes-Benz C200 or a C250 and always thought they could use a more ferocious soundtrack, Armytrix has just the thing.

Neither of the previously-mentioned C-Class models is particularly loud on its own merit. Naturally, that’s because their four-cylinder engines weren’t exactly designed to leave you in awe when you’re flooring the throttle.

The C200, powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-pot has just 184 PS at its disposal, whereas the C250, using the same engine, sends 211 PS to its rear wheels. To be fair, the latter isn’t necessarily slow, being able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.6 seconds.

Yet, a proper after-market exhaust system should do wonders for either of these cars, as shown here in this video. After fitting this C-Class with an Armytrix exhaust system, the car went from being relatively muted to crackling like a mad hot hatch as soon as those valves opened.

We still wouldn’t call it loud, but it should definitely draw more attention to itself on the road, even at low revs.
