They are both somewhat the same looking and they both should just slip on to my factory piping.

My question is, which do you think would look best, and would they look good at all on my bumper. As some of you may know, my car was rear ended a few years back and the insurance only paid to put a stock SE bumper on. Name:  SSEI2.jpg

So i was just wondering if you guys think these tips would even look good on a SE bumper because the mufflers would be seen and it might look ugly. Could someone photoshop those exhaust tips on or any at that?

Thanks.

I like the Vette tips, something about them just looks tough.

I like the second set. Not feeling the angled step in the first set. The second set definitely looks "tougher"

Straight cuts...the angles cut'* look a bit strange.
