Default What about these tips?

So there'* a group buy on the SLP GTX tips and couple locals have recomended these tips for me. I think they might look pretty good.


My car


Only thing is that the top of those tips are curved slightly, not sure if it would look good.
What'* everyone think?

Here'* the group buy for $75 plus 10 for shipping

I think they will be to small for rear facia, but im sure you have seen them in person. I'm just going by the pics.

They look a little small, maybe if you had a pic mounted on your car for reference?
The tips themselves are very nice just not sure if the gap would be too large?

Our tips are pretty nice when new, have you tried to polish yours up?

I agree that they look smaller than original. What is the connecting pipe size
If it'* bigger than 2" than it may be worth it. At least they fill out the cut outs better than round ones.
Maybe you should get down and do a little bit of cleaning.
When they are really dirty I recommend using 400 grit wet sand paper around the perimiter polished part. Laquer thinner works best to clean up the soot. A small wire brush is used to clean out the inside.

Does your dealer have a set you can look at to help you with the decision? No harm in a phone call to ask if there is a set in stock.

Well the tips are 2.5 inlet, I should ask someone what the demensions are of the outside. The tips are just a thought, like I said at all the local GP events I goto, I hear get those SLP tips like J/O I member in our club.

I highly doubt the dealer has them, it'* an slp product and they don't sell GTX'* any more.

I'm just trying to figure out what/if any tips I'll get. Most cars aftermarket tips are a must, not sure yet for my SSEi. Next option is Corsa tips, like my old aurora had, nicest dual tips out there IMOP. Love the rolled in side edge, Also VERY expensive.

the 01-03 SSEi/SLE have the 96-99 tips. They are small as well, those tips shouldnt be as bad either.
