    I used a Dremel when I did it. But if I had to do it again I'd get an angle grinder at it.

    Just be careful that you only cut into the steel outer tip and the weld and not the actual exhaust pipe.

    I used an angle grinder... It's a bit tricky but just take your time and you'll be right!.

    I suppose in an ideal world if you had access to a grease pit you could get under the car with a lamp and the job would take all of 10 mins.

    I reversed the back wheels onto a pair of big patio slabs when I did it to make getting under the exhaust a bit easier.

    No need to remove anything from the car to do it...

    Bringing back an old post here.
    Want to do this mod.
    Anyone able to source the tips?
    Was thinking bout getting the facelift tips and getting a mate to weld them on.

    Old thread revival here! lol
    Went to my local powerflow dealer and they showed me the tips they had available and thought the 75mm angled were the best and they'll cut and weld them for £80 that sound reasonable?

    I'm considering doing this too lol.

    Theres a powerflow place near me and if it's £80 for the old tips cut off and the new ones welded on, then that's what I will be doing, as opposed to using tips held on by grub screws.

    Update time... Just got bk from my local powerflow for my tips fitting and in very happy!
    Got them to cut the tips off aswell as some of the pipes underneath so can't be seen inside the new tips!

    After



    Well chuffed with the result and well worth every penny!
