Might check again its $42 for each exhaust tip lol. They are sold individually so you would need 2 if they do fit.

even if they fit, you'll have a tough time removing the existing tips...unless your car is new

No my exhaust tips slide out fairly easily. that's why they need a replacement.

holy hell those are expensive... i have black chrome tips on mine, but they're generic, nothing fancy... cost me $22 per tip (x2). But to answer your question, it shouldn't be a problem for any muffler/exhaust shop to weld them in place. And typically exhaust shops are low in labor costs so you'll definitely pay way more for the product than you will for the actual install....

my question for you though... why pay that much just to put them on an OEM muffler? seems like a waste of money IMO.
