I have a set of HEICO oval exhaust tips that I took off my car. They are is good condition with the normal wear to be expected from used tips: some scraping on the bottom, etc. I think the pics show the condition pretty well. I did not spend much time trying to clean them up, just a little water to clear off the dust that was on them. They could be cleaned up more but you get the idea of the general condition.<p>I don't know how much these are worth since it doesn't appear Heico sells these separately, but they come from the exhaust kit for an AWD S40, which retails at $900+. I'd assume these are a good chunk of the cost, at least $150 each if they were available to purchase separately.<p>I'm looking for $130 shipped to the continental US, I will consider offers. Seeing as just a set of 4 door pins from them costs $60 I think this is pretty fair.<br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs142.snc1/5260_103944224441_775614441_2109572_7561128_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-f.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs142.snc1/5260_103944234441_775614441_2109573_7722529_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-g.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs122.snc1/5260_103944239441_775614441_2109574_2199234_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-h.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs122.snc1/5260_103944254441_775614441_2109575_7315195_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-b.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs122.snc1/5260_103944449441_775614441_2109577_3267247_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-c.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs142.snc1/5260_103944454441_775614441_2109578_4008517_n.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: (jdsr917)

Call up Heico, guarantee they would ask around $300+ for a set of these, before taxes and shipping. $130 shipped (shipping would probably be $15) seems pretty reasonable to me, not to mention I said I will consider offers. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"><br>Heico stuff is not cheap, and these could look great with a little work. The pics were taken without any real cleaning of the tips. You can go buy some no name double walled tips for a couple bucks less, or buy the top name brand for aftermarket Volvo for cheap... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (carreragt7)

Well if you did take some pics with them cleaned up then you might better offers ! <p>I know you can make these look new with little effort ! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Do these change the sound of the exhaust at all ? i know some people say tip can but i have no idea !

Re: (jdsr917)

Still for sale. I honestly can't remember if they change the sound of your exhaust at all but they are double-walled so you can adjust them to be closer to your rear skirt more so than other tips that aren't double-walled since they won't get as hot.<p>$125 shipped Con US. Just need the extra space.

Re: (97GLTbrick)

I forgot I had these listed, but I still have them so no worries.<br>Not sure on the sizes, but I can measure them for you. And when you say the tip oval diameter, are you saying top to bottom height or side to side width? I just want to be sure to measure the correct measurements. Let me know, thanks.

Re: (97GLTbrick)

So I finally had time to measure, the ID of the tip where it attaches is right around 2.25" and the oval side to side is about 4 7/8". Hope this helps.

Re: (97GLTbrick)

Yeah, they are somewhere around 2.25-2.5, I just say the smaller size just to be safe. I guess any easy way to tell is to see what the size of the Heico exhaust kit is for the S40/V50, as that is what these came from.

I'll grab some pics and put them up. I liked the setup and the tips are very high quality. I totally forgot I had them and instead of starting a new thread figured I'd resurrect the old one. :)

Here are just a couple that I found. I recently switched computers so most of my pictures are on my old hard drive so I don't have as easy of access to them right now.
Car is dirty, but the tips are nice. They are adjustable, so they can stick out or be pulled in more. I personally would've pulled them in a little more but I ended up going with my custom tips.
