Are My Dinan Exhaust Tips too far out??

8645 35
All of you who have the Dinan Exhaust... are my tips too far out? Should I bring them in a little? Here are pics I took with my cell... the tips are at its hottest temp when I took those pics so they do go in about 1 inch when cold.... But it wont go out any further than that... Thanks in advance!

That is very close to how mine looked as well. If that is at high temp and they go back about 1" when cool, I would leave them as is. You wouldn't want to tuck them too far under the apron, or at least I would not.

+1, I agree. If they truly recede an inch or so, I would leave them as is. Reason being, when the car is parked and cold, you don't want the tips too far under...

How about we let your beast retain some dignity? How would you like it if your M5 came on this site posting about what happened to your tip when it is cold outside?? :hihi:
ROTFL
shrinkage, gotta hate it!

Now this is a great post. Finally some outside opinions to add to our own views Bernie. Those pics make it look like its out more then I remember, but again, I guess they were very hot. A half inch cut off may be the answer, the question is where do we get it from, *haha*?
