Video: Widebody BMW F31 Wagon with Armytrix Valvetronic Exhaust

When it comes to BMW performance vehicles, almost everyone lusts after the M3. For those who want a wagon, however, the M3 is out of the question. Luckily, BMW’s standard 3-series has most of the DNA of the M3, and it’s available in a wagon! Of course, the M3 has a much wider and more aggressive body compared to the standard 3-series. Luckily, there are a ton of widebody kits on the market. The gap in performance between the standard 3-series and the M3 can be reduced with bolt-on parts such as an aftermarket exhaust.

As you probably expected, this particular F31 Wagon is equipped with an Armytrix Valvetronic exhaust system. Just like the M3, the inline-6 turbo engine under the hood sounds awesome at idle and under load. The pops and bangs give the F31 a wild, unique, and fun sound. The exhaust isn’t just for sound though! With the increased piping diameter and improved design, exhaust flow is massively improved, resulting in more power and better throttle response. On top of the increase in power and improved throttle response, the lightweight design sheds unnecessary weight which further improves performance. Check out the video below!

Video: BMW G30 M Sport 540i with ARMYTRIX Cat-Back Exhaust

With BMW’s move towards turbocharged engines in the entire G30 lineup, many enthusiasts have wondered if the new 5-series will live up to the greatness of previous 5-series. A turbocharged engine has potential to produce far more torque than a naturally aspirated engine, but often the sound of a smaller turbocharged engine is what turns enthusiasts away. In the case of the 540i M Sport, there is a 3.0L turbocharged inline-six engine under the hood. In stock form, you can’t really hear the engine at all, but with the addition of an Armytrix Valvetronic catback exhaust, you can crank the exhaust volume up with the press of a button.

Once the exhaust valves have been opened via the included remotes, or through the Armytrix iOS/Android app, the 540i has a very clean, deep, and throaty exhaust sound, which is very similar to the sound of the BMW M2 when equipped with an Armytrix exhaust. Of course, you are driving a large, luxury sedan, and sometimes you want the exhaust to be quiet so you can relax. With the Armytrix remote, you’re able to close the exhaust valves and make the 540i M-Sport sound similar to stock. Be sure to check out the short video below so you can get an idea of how this exhaust system sounds in the real world.

Introducing The All New BMW 520i/530i Armytrix Valvetronic Exhaust System

As time goes on, emissions restrictions are forcing automobile manufacturers to use smaller and more efficient engines. Cars that used to have six-cylinder engines now have turbocharged four-cylinder engines, with more and more consumers picking the smaller engine over the larger engine. A big concern that many enthusiasts have is how the smaller four-cylinder engine will sound when compared to the six-cylinder of the same car. This exact situation is affecting the BMW G30/G31 520i/530i.

Armytrix decided to show the world just how awesome the 520i and 530i sound with a proper exhaust system. Now that the development is completely finished up, this new Valvetronic exhaust system for the G30/G31 is available for purchase. One of the great things about the Valvetronic system found inside an Armytrix exhaust is the ability to change the volume of your exhaust on the fly. This is great if you don’t want to upset your neighbors, but want to let your exhaust sing out on the road.

Separate from the Valvetronix catback exhaust is a new high-performance downpipe. These are offered without a catalytic converter for maximum performance, but a cat simulator is included to keep your engine light from coming on. With increased horsepower, Valvetronic mufflers, and a lightweight construction, the new Armytrix exhaust is a perfect addition to your 520i/530i.
