Feedback on aftermarket exhaust tips

I have the tubi mufflers, and kind of got bored of my exhaust tips. I am sure there are available tips in the market. Tried to search but no luck. Any info or pics of any tip availble in the market, how easy is it to change it, and is it worth it ?

Or.....how easy would it be to make your own tips (alt. having someone doing them for you..)?

Cheaper and way more to choose from.....just imagine....you could make them look like toilet paper rolls, cover them in fur or some heat resistant rubber, bamboo tips...list goes on and on....

I would try to build my own if I were you. If you dont have the tools/experience, call some shops and see how much they would charge. It cant be that hard/that much.

Search some of the after market tuner sites, I've seen a variety of tips.

I plan on eventually migrating to a dual muffler and tailpipe setup, using two ~6" oval exhaust tips.

Opinions are like a**holes, everyone has one. Aesthetic appreciation is personal preference. The Bugatti Veyron's V-16 exits via a single square exhaust tip. Some like it, other don't.

I think the quad OE exhaust is a needless waste of space and weight, and large oval tips filling the bumper cutouts would look great.

No, not like the ACS tips, a true large oval, connected to one muffler on each side, that fills out the bumper cutout. I saw a set on one of the after market sites, will post if I can find it again.

It's personal opinion, I think all the multi-tube exhausts are sort of silly. Ten (cylinders) does not divide evenly into four, extra weight and space taken where a larger gas tank, spare tire or wider rear tires would fit.
