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.
You have to consider the angle of the photos. Most of the them I took right at ground level where you see the mechanics of it all.

You don't see any of that at standing level.
