Another thing to think about is the entire construction of the tips. When they say stainless, is all of the metal in the tip stainless or just the outer shell that is rolled in the back (basically just the shiny part). It would suck to spend $90+ on tips only to have acouple hard (salty) winters rust through the 'Y' part.

*EDIT* Just e-mailed the guys on the link posted above (Fasttoys.net) and their response was that all metal in the tips was stainless. BTW, they responded in less than 5 minutes - AMAZING!!!

I think I'll go with these over the Hedman counterparts!!! Much cheaper

**EDIT** Here'* another thread in the 00+ section on the same subject. There is also a link to the GrandPrixStore.com Hedman dual rolled exhaust tips for $57.99ea.

I've been looking, but I can't find any pics of dual round tips on a 92-95. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Oooh, I found the dual oval rounded tips from Magnaflow, as well as stainless square ones. Now I can't freaking decide.

GO OVAL!!!!
Ok, so I'm partial. I want to copy Jim'* old RLD and get a single one of these with a Magnaflow single outlet muffler on my Lesabre (after I FINALLY get the rest of the exhaust swapped off the 1997 parts car).

The oval just doesn't do it for me. What type of cutout is on the bumper cover for your year car?

Look at me... I've got stock surrounds on mine and I'm giving tip advice.
