Another eBay exhaust tip review

I got these tips from eBay because like others have said, paying almost 200 for exhaust tips is insane. And for $28 bucks each tip you can't go wrong. Only thing I'm worried about is how the chrome will hold up with time, but I doubt it, cuz these are of great quality.
http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=360952528256
Shipping was ultra fast, taking only 4 days.
These are fabricated in the U.S. overall I am very satisfied with these tips.
Enjoy the pics! Btw these are 3.5 inch, I was gonna go with 4inch but from looking at other pics on this forum just seemed a tiny bit to big, to aftermarket for my taste. Enjoy, she's a little dirty but you get the idea.

Looks good. How much did you pay to have them installed? Does this retain the exhaust flap in the left OEM pipe?

Thanks man
Yes they cut the pipe just ahead of the flapper, so it's still there, the shop charged me 110cad because it was a bit of a PITA to install, any shop is gonna charge a minimum of 1 hour which is how long it took them, for future reference though, it would be wise to order 7' length instead of 8' which is what I got, but none the less I couldn't be happier!

Only for looks, or does this change sound?

This is solely a cosmetic upgrade, no change in performance or sound.

I've had mines on my car for about 3 years now and the edges are starting to rust a lil bit. But for $60 I don't care at all. Not to mention it's been through 3 winters now with a shit ton of salt and snow. Definitely a wiser alternative to spending $200 on some of the other tips sold on this forum. Which I'm sure after the same abuse would be doing the same thing.

I assume you can just cut the stock tips off with a cutting wheel, slip these on, use an appropriately sized exhaust clamp and call it a day, right? Should be a pretty easy/cheap DIY upgrade.

I don't know if clamps would work. Mines were welded. Was a little bit pain in the ass to install but it came out pretty good. Best to order a tip that's 6-7 inch long.

Looking at your old tips, some metal polish would have cleaned them right up. You could have spent an hour and saved $180 and had better quality tips.

Honestly speaking, I agree with this.

I don't see enough of a difference to warrant what you paid; I don't personally think it was worth it.

However, if you enjoy them, then that's all that matters in the end anyway.

I really like em, the pictures don't do justice. The issue with the other tips wasn't the fact that they were dirty or anything (they were 335is tips so they were gloss black) it was the fact that they looked to small (3' inch) And I installed 3.5 which made a nice but subtle improvement to go with the diffuser and carbon fiber high kick spoiler I'm installing when the weather warms up.

I think they look good. I have 4", which I prefer, but 3.5" looks good. The stock ones looked kind of goofy. They looked too small.

Thanks man! Everyone has their own taste, but at the end of the day, anything bigger then the stock 3' makes a huge difference for the better, I agree with you, the stock tips looked off.
I remember you're on the other tip review thread, you also got it from eBay?

Yea, I went with 4". They've held up so far and I'm happy with them.
