Overall, I think the tip is good. The shape really fits the car well. I do think it would look better if it was tucked forward a few inches though. As it is, it kinda screams "aftermarket", at least to me.

But then i'm really conservative about such things. You could call me the Antirice.

Ya, I suppose so, I wanted to the car to be conservative, but also to recognize the "sleeper" power... Once I'm done of course.

I considered adding another tip to the other side, but the $130 tip was enough, besides cutting the base of the car...I wasn't to interested in doing that!

Thanks for the critique tho. I'm learning for my next Bonne....

I really do like the tip itself though. If it was tucked under there a bit more, it would be one of those things that your average joe wouldn't notice, but people who know the cars would say 'oooh, custom exhaust', you know? The important thing to me is that it'* tasteful, and yours is.

As a practical joke, I spray-painted a coffee can silver and stuck it on the back of my dad'* base-model 2000 cavalier, and he drove all the way to work. He didn't know it was on there until he started getting mocked for it by the guys. I might have a pic... hmm, I do but not online. Anyway, it was funny.
