Hi
2016 bike.
This engine sounds like sh.t because valve in headers rattle. How to kill this? Headers like akra without this valve need mapping. Maping + headers + bla bla = allot of $$$. I dont want to loose any power in low rpm or dont want bad low speed drive ability.

That exhaust is an emission device in the USA. some dealers can get the headers replaced under warranty of emissions by BMWAG. You might can check your local dealer to see if he has any ideas on that. My 2015 got the same rattle and they replaced mine, but, it was in the 3 year time of warranty. It was only at 3k miles when the same rattle was there. The bushing wears out in the 15/16 headers. The 17-19 K46 had a redesign on this issue.

is it possible to mount 17 version to 2015?
The headers do interchange. There is another issue however, you will need the 17-19 muffler ( EURO4 muffler ) as well and then the mounting to the passenger rearset instead of the rider rearset.
