Want to enhance the sound of your G87? Here’s all you need to know about the new Milltek performance exhaust for the BMW M2.

When modifying a car, one of the first alterations that people make is the exhaust. It’s not hard to understand why. You get multiple benefits such as a more aggressive sound, enhanced appearance, and – if you’re lucky – a few extra horsepower too.

So, if you’ve recently picked up a brand new G87-gen BMW M2 and fancy tinkering around with its acoustics, this new exhaust system from renowned fabricator Milltek should do the job nicely.

Milltek exhaust specs for the G87 M2

First of all, let’s consider the aesthetics. This new range of Milltek Sport exhausts features a smaller rear silencer and ‘GT115’ exhaust tips. So, while the jury may be out on the new M2’s overall styling, at least you know that this aftermarket exhaust system won’t be letting the side down visually.

As for the sort of engineering you can expect, the system can be purchased in different configurations. The Centre Resonator-back system is available with the option of an Active Valve Control unit (AVC). Essentially, AVC allows you to manually control whether the exhaust valves are closed or open, all from within the cabin. So, if you don’t want to wake the neighbors up you can leave the valves closed, but when out on the open road, opening them will allow your M2’s six cylinders to sing.

Plus, after analyzing detailed 3D scans of the OEM exhaust, Milltek Sport has come up with a design that capitalizes on the original’s weak points, promising marginal gains in engine responsiveness as a result.

How much will it cost?

Prices start at £2,628 for an axle back system with polished stainless steel tips (which translates to around $3500). Different lengths of system will be available, as will different exhaust tip finishes. Your options there include: cerakote satin black, brushed titanium, burnt/blue titanium, and carbon fiber; as well as the standard stainless variant.

You can find out more about the rest of the range by getting in contact with Milltek directly, or visiting their stand this week at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
