I want a at least 3" tips however I am worried about them melting my rear diffuser (Dynamic trim kit). If anybody can give me advice on what diameter size that would be awesome. S40Racer's tips are 4", I am wondering if he had to modify his bumper. <p>Here is the one I have my eye on. These can be 3-4" in diameter. Give me suggestions guys! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://www.magnaflow.com/02product/parts/35121_sm.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://www.magnaflow.com/02product/parts/35123_sm.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: Which Exhaust tips to get? (Vash13)

I like 'em. I will do my (expected) shameless plug for my quad tips (which look like those) <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> but I do like the looks of those ones. You should be fine, the dynamic trim can be trimmed if needed.

I dont' want to cut again or else I will have to repaint the bumper again =(. How did your bumper melt AJ? Was the exhaust touching the plastic? I read it somewhere before.

Re: (Vash13)

It was 100% my fault. I didn't realize my exhaust pipes (my tips were removed) didn't have a clear shot out of the stock trim slots, and I drive with a heavy foot, and it was a long trip, so the heat of the exhaust melted the stock rear trim. Luckily my MS Design rear piece was fine (the stock piece stays on underneath it). If I had just pointed my tips down a little it would have allowed the exhaust to clear out from under the car better.<br>If you are using tips and let them stick out a bit beyond your trim you should be fine. Mine was completely my fault for not thinking about that. I keep asking myself' what was I thinking?' <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

Definitely didn't modify the bumper... just took 3 hours at the exhaust shop and lots of cutting/re-welding to get them perfect... That's the beauty of a custom system.

Re: (Vash13)

...some no name brand. They had them on the wall at the exhaust shop. I was like a kid in a candy store. They had over 50 tips to choose from, and they let me pull my car over the pit and hold up the tips I liked one by one until I found the perfect set. Sorry I can't tell you the exact brand, but I can tell you that they look amazingly similar to the Magnaflow tip I had on my 940t. Keep it in mind if you're willing to drop $250 on tips alone!
