Default Exhaust Tips for 97 SSEi

I got this 97 SSEi here, and I want to put two new exhaust tips on it. Mostly because the car is missing one of them and it looks dumb just having one. So I want to get some new ones. Nothing too fancy, just well made and good price. What do you guys recommend and what looks nice on a White SSEi? And where would you recommend buying them?

Thanks for the reply. Those are pretty nice. I think going for ones with dual tips like that will look the nicest on the SSEi too. Gives it some serious looking power from the rear. I'll definitely consider those or ones similar to them in design.

Yeah $100 is a bit high, I was looking at some other site and they were mostly going for $40 a piece. So like $80 total. But $20 more not a big deal I guess.

WOW...that looks so good. Yeah I think thats the exact look im going for. My SSEi looks pretty much like his, same wheels and all, but its white and I didn't clear out the front corner lights...yet...but wow yeah I love the quad exhaust look on his.

The tips sonoma and I have will never rust. They're top quality and well worth the extra price in my opinion. Why purchase new tips in 5 years cause the cheap ones turned to crap??

Cough cough.. Bob.. thanks for nuttin.

The tips are good quality. Easy to care for, although it does take a little work to make sure they are centered properly.
