Default 2003 SSE exhaust tips - which ones?

My original exhaust tips were apparently damaged and replaced with cheap chrome plated oval shaped ones when I bought my used 2003. Recently both rusted and fell off the vehicle. The only way to restore to original is to buy the whole muffler, tail pipe, etc. What is is closest aftermarket stainless steel exhaust tip that would look good. I'm not sure whether the OEM tips were cow bell shaped or oval. Help.

Stock 2003 SLE, SSEi has Ovals. Not too bad when cleaned up.. Though the GXP tips sure look sweet..

Ivory03, could you measure the size of the ovals. I can't even see yours in your pic. Do you have any pics looking directly at the rear end? Thanks.

Ivory03,
Thanks for the great pic. I'm going to buy aftermarket tips that size to bring mine back to looking original. One more question. Is the end flat or angle cut? Thanks again.

It'* flat.. I would prefer the angle cut like the GXP and many other tips. Remember to use your search.. There are lots of topics on tips in the 200-2005 and GXP forums.. Pat

If needed I have two sets of stock oval tips. 1996-1999 used the same ones.
I'll sell a set for $20 shipped. Not new, but a good cleaning with a scotch pad and some metal cleaner and they should look pretty good.
