My New TIPS

New exhaust tips arrived. Not 100% happy they are meant to be Black Chrome but appear to be more black black then anything else. Oh well the black black should go with the black shadow line trim I guess. Never know next I might get a black grill .

Anyway now to see who around chatswoooood can fit?

Do the tips actually change the sound of the exhaust? or just purely aesthetics?

I always thought they were just held in place by a small bolt / shoved in?

looks like you got some Wine as well!

get some black grills - remove those nasty chromes!

I have also heard that changing tips slightly change your exhaust notes?

The tips look pretty good imo

Were you after a shiny black chrome finish like the stock 135i exhaust?

They look like DiMisa...

And no, they don't change your exhaust sound.

black chrome is way shinier, like shadow chrome, not sure what you've got there.

stock 335 tips are ugly imo... too small.
