Too big for the stock bumper/rear imo. They fit the cutouts OK but they're too aggressive to flow with the stock look. Time for a new "diffuser"/trunk.

they probably won't look that good on a stock veh, but after seeing these in person, they flow real well on Jacob's car.

I like these tips, been debating between 3.5 or 4 inch though?

I believe with the mtech rear the 4" ones don't look that big.

many guys with the aftermarket rear bumpers and/or diffusers elect to go with the v 4.0, but in reality, it's still about a 50% - 50% spread between the two sizes.

Shoot me an email and I can send you some video clips and the such. This may help you make a decision better.

each tip is made for the BMW 335, there's never any fitment issues. email me if you'd like some more info on installations, etc.

yes it fits, but won't want it to look like the OP's from the inside. hoping it's just that the original tips weren't cut correcty and not welded at the right place.

well, i hate to say that his install was done incorrectly...

the thing on this install is that the tail pipe from the muffler was left too long (after the cut was made).

then, the installer simply slid the DT onto the tail pipe and pushed it back to the owner's mount preference (protrusion).

the GOOD NEWS is, the inside of a DT and the tail pipe will become to sooty and black, that the visible difference between the two won't be noticeable.

i'll bet ya that if you snapped a pic now, not immediately after install, you'd not see that portion that you don't like.

that's the nice thing about DiMisaTips, they're pretty simple and easy (even for us mechanically challenged guys).
