I redesigned my exhaust with some food grade stainless recently to look like the staggered OEM set up. (E39) I have straight pipes from the resonators back) I then had a few members ask me to make them some pipes too. Thread is here...

http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e3...1415-custom-muffler-deleted-exhaust-tips.html

I can make pipes anyway you want them, just give me some specifics. The pipe I have is 3" food grade stainless which I can polish up pretty nice. It won't be a "chrome" finish, but a very nice brushed finish. I can also media blast a custom design into the pipe if you wish. See last pic below of my pipes.....









My custom pipes...





A little dirty in this pic, sorry.....

Do you have a price in mind? Is it extra to do the media blasting?

I am doing it on a person by person basis now because everyone wants something different. I already made 2 sets for members on this board. I am hoping they will post up their results when they get them installed. I am not making hardly anything on these, not looking to really. I just enjoy hooking up fellow members with custom stuff for their Beasts. As of now I have a VERY limited amount of pipe as it is VERY expensive and hard to come by.

Example:

Full set of tips with "Y" pipe which means it will have a 2.5" input and the dual 3" output without custom media blast will be $300.

4 peices of pipe, 12" long, polished without media blast, ready for install will be $125.

Media blasting will be extra and will depend on what is needed because I need to get the vinyl stickers from a local vendor. I am trying to work out a deal with them for a discounted price for more work....

Please ask if anyone needs more info. I am well known by several members on the board to be an honest guy. They will probably be chiming in and busting my chops pretty soon......hiha

Timmy

I can personally vouch for this guys work. I just received my custom 3inch SS exhaust tips, polished both inside and out. They look great and will post some pics Friday night after the install. Tim was great to deal with and anybody wanting to enhance the look of their exhaust tips should shoot this man a PM!

Just a heads up about Tims passion and commitment to our cars is quite impressive. As an example take this week... He has a rotating schedule at his work and this is his off week. He usually goes into work to make extra money for his family but this week... Monday: spent most of the day fixing his wheel bearing (after he had been at work all night) Tuesday: helped a fellow member change his diff fluid/brakes/tranny fluid and fix that members rear door vapor leaks. Wednesday I think he worked and made some money Thursday: he drove 1.5 hours to help me, fix my rear door vapor barriers/ re-wire my angel eyes/ install a spoiler/ install a euro-dash/ and an aftermarket tire pressure monitor. Friday: he changed his plugs.

Does that give you guys any idea how insanely committed and passionate he is about our cars? Not only that but how stand up he is?

Oh and what he is charging for these custom pipes, its such a steal its not even funny.

Bump for my boy.

pipes

Sad news! I took my beast to the shop and they gave me the bad news. The tips Tim made me cannot be welded on to my BB mufflers. I hadn't really thought about the new tips being bigger and the BB stock tips being so close together. There is not enough room for the larger tips. So for now, I am stuck with the terrible looking rolled tips grrrrrrr

I am lost for ideas. I like the BB sound far better than the Magnaflows so in order to get tips I actually like, I would have to order an expensive muffler system and try and sell the BB. Not happy right now...Love everything on my car but those tips....make me want to yuke

I would suggest taking it to another shop. I do not see any reason why they can't do what you want. Send me some pics of your B&B tips if you get a second. I looked at my stock exhaust last night, that would be an easy mod on the stock mufflers.

Your installer did an AMAZING job. They welded in elbows instead of bending stainless pipe. A+++ Job!! Looks sick!! Glad you like the tips. The wifey says I should call them my "Signiture Series".... LOL.....
