Show me your tips

Exhaust tips that is. I'm looking for a nice weld on tip to get rid of the ugly stock eyesore of a tailpipe. No cheesy bolt-ons please.

that's the eventual plan. I'll need something really quiet though. I need to spend money on wheels first.

there is a decent way to do it, but it might be closer to $100.....get a magnaflow or borla exhaust tip and have that welded to your stock muffler. the exhaust shop will cut off your "lunch box" second muffler/resonator and weld the new tip to the original muffler. this will give you some sound and a nice looking tip.

If you plan on getting a cat back, most come with a stylish tip (or in some cases, a not so stylish) anyway...why waste money buying a purely cosmetic part when you will be replacing it further down the road. Just my $0.02.

keep the stock exhaust tip until you get a catback.

My exhaust tip is actually hidden due to my rear diffuser. But your best bet is either to wait and just get a focus sport stealth exhasut system (apparently quite) or cut the lunchbox off and get a nice borla dual tip and weld it on. I say just get a catback though
