    Exhaust tip installed, definitely going to paint the rest for the tailpipe black with high temp paint. I also installed some glare covers as the glare on the backup camera is pretty bad.

    I ended up getting DC Sports from Amazon, I did have to chop off the OEM expanded flange.

    Build quality is actually really good. You do have to cut off the OEM “flange” at the tip for it to fit. Also, price is 1/2 right now. I paid $22, it’s now $11 for Black Friday. Finished it off with some matte black bbq paint.

    I’m with you. My (exhaust) tip lasted a good 12 years before it ended up looking horrible. Rest in peace 11$

    Nice, tell me does it change the sound or is it just for looks.

    Honestly, it would probably minimally change the sound, barely noticeable is my guess. Almost 100% for looks only.
