Did you know? 330i chrome tip vs 325i chrome tip.

Did you guys know the 330i tip has a bigger dimension than the 325i chrome tip? I got only one 330i to cover the outter outlet,but found the 330i one is about .25" larger.
Thanks to JD at Crown BMW, he will be sending another 330i chrome tip to me by early next week. The bad news is my friends will make fun on my tips this weekend.

No, it isn't.

The 330i pipes go all the way back to the muffler, the 325i pipes are shorter and have a screw for fitting.

There are many threads on this topic.

But the 330 tips are a pretty tight fit on the 325... they stand so close together, that you can't really polish them without taking them off.

He probably order a set of the (R/L) 330. I think the right side pipe is made to fit on some flap or something for the 330. He needs two left side.
