OP, for your rear, I would suggest 76mm tips. Koven did the custom m3 rear which makes bigger tips look a little more at home but, unless you have a rear with a LARGE opening for tips, 76 will likely look better.

yea its custom im either gonna get it done at Custom Muffler Centers in Livingston, NJ or High Velocity Auto in North Brunswick, NJ both places that forum members got their quads done.... I think im gonna go with Velocity cuz they quoted me at $350 with tips Custom Muffler Centers gave me a quote of $400 with out tips so thats the only reason im looking for some tips

^^^ yeah if you are doing it on that rear, definitely don't go with 88mm tips. They will look humorously large. 76 will look nice though

i woudn't recomend the Porsche tips ... 1. you wont find them for "cheap" 2. your rear is very square, those tips will look very out of place

Ive been putting off getting some for awhile. My tips came off and its just the "raw" pipes exposed now, with the mounting clip piece sticking out...
I really like the ones spdu4ia posted

edit-
Anybody install the eurosport ones? http://www.eurosportdesign.com/pc-25...aust-tips.aspx
I have the factory exhaust and it sounds like the stock tip mounting tabs would have to be removed and then the new tips welded on.
Those are about half the price of the magnaflow ones...

edit#2-
It looks like you just have to cut off the stock tips near the muffler and weld the new ones on (and do the "golf tee mod"). On the website it says you'll have to cut some length off the back of the tip or else it will stick out further.

it had to be because there was something in the way... i forgot what it was called... some type of vac or something for the fuel idk i forgot what it was called its right next to the battery...but yes its about 3 inches in more on the pass side but there was nothing we could do about it personally i can live with it... the guy said if i want 2 buy a rear add on he would be able to move it over more and make it hang lower but im fine with it
