Default Junkyard exhaust tips

I'm gonna go to the junkyard and try to find some exhaust tips for my 97 SSEi. It is missing the tip on one side, so it looks dumb. I guess if I find one stock tip like the one I already have, at least I'll have two of the same on each side. Or I was thinking if i can't find another Bonneville exhaust tip couldn't I just get 2 decent tips off of a Grand Prix or some other car? What should I look for? What other cars have dual exhaust tips that could look nice on my car in case they dont have the original bonne ones?

Basically want to have two decent exhaust tips (instead of one oem, and one missing) and not spend a lot.

honestly I found that the dealer is the best place to get them from, I think I paid around $40 for 2 brand new tips for my 97' SSE.

Not a huge fan of the "cowbell" tips but I'll consider it if I find nothing else.

I ended up just getting another OEM tip and I spray painted the other one and they match pretty good now. It seems the rubber thing that holds the muffler on is a little bit mushy on the one side so one exhaust tip sits slightly lower because that side of the muffler hangs down a tad lower. But it'* fine for now, much better than having a missing exhaust tip. I'll post a picture here once I wash the car.

Update: Check out the "Your Ride" section for pics.

Im new to this site. My headliner seems to be real loose. Not the material, just the whole liner. I tried clicking on your thread to headliner removal, but it said I wasnt allowed. Could you please send me a link, or the info if it isnt too much trouble. I have to recover my sunroof shade. I have a 2001 ssei. How much for the cowbells by the way? Thanks for any info.
