I want to like this, but I'm afraid it doesn't look much better than stock (if at all). It sort of looks like what it is: a cheap little bolt-on tip.

In the last two pictures (the last one especially) it sort of looks like it's floating because it's so much wider than the exhaust pipe and it just looks really obvious that it's just for show.

Sorry, don't mean to be a hater. But I think doing this right will require more than a $20 Chinese part. Part of the problem might be the lack of an exhaust cutout in the bumper, which is why I think the Euro Focus exhaust looks pretty good, even though I think it's probably just a tip as well. Probably the best option for US cars is to go with an actual new exhaust with integrated yips.

All of this is IMO, of course.
