    ..all the links in the threads are out of date and are dead, can someone point me in the right direction for the chrome tips to replace the downward pointing ones on my SB.

    I have searched before someone suggests it, but as i say the links are dead now.

    I would like to fit pipes that look as close to the real thing or the genuine ones, all depends on quality and cost (as always).

    Thanks in advance.

    Did they supply the tips to you or did you give them to them to weld on?

    They supplied the tips they had loads to choose from!
    I paid £80 all in!
    They cut, positioned and welded to my requirements so thought was quite a good price!

    When I was at audi I priced up the tips from them direct, nearly fainted at £124 for just the parts!
    Also you see lots if people with grub screw ones whereas I had mine properly sleeved and welded so was well pleased with the result!
