    I bough the same tips that A4_Majik bought for his a few weeks ago (Click Here).

    They arrived today, and something tells me they're too big.

    Here is the standard exhaust, with the curved down ends

    And here it is with the new tips slid straight onto the ends:

    And again:

    And once more from t'other side:

    It's booked in to my garage to have them fitted next Tuesday. I think I'd better have a word. I love the look, but I'm worried they might not be able to fit them on.

    I don't have any welding kit, and I've never welded anything to anything in my life. Should I just shove some gripfill up there or something to hold them in place?

    Don't they have any bolts screwed into the sides or them to hold against existing?

    Nope; no grub screws, just smooth stainless steel.

    I'll try. Officially, I'm working from home on Tuesday, so can only be AWOL for a short time to drop the car off and then go back to pick it up again after.

    Nice to see the chrome.
    My cabby diesel has drooping chrome, so follows the idea that diesel should aim it's crud at the ground, but still has the chrome tips (to polish! ;) )

    The droop also hides the inner pipe, which is a whole lot smaller than the chrome add-ons. It's hard to see from the pictures, but can you see the inner pipe inside the chrome rings?

    [Edit: Presumably you will have to cut some of the pipe off so that the droop does not cause a blockage against the wall of the new tips?]

    Yers, when I just slid them on to take the pics, the ends of the exisitng tips were visible inside. So I will get the garage to cut them off before welding the new ones in place.

    Looking good to me fella! Good to see my suggestions are catching on, be it the right orientation at that haha :happy:

    Make sure you get some pics up when they're welded in place.
