Hmm...I have seen the angled tips...it still looks good, however have you had any heat issues with your tips, I know they can get hot and being so close to the plastic trim, has there been any heat damage?

Oh and the Aurora cutouts are bigger then the SSE/i cutouts, so heat doesn't affect me

if anything the sun would get it first! That'* why I get the garage and the wife'* Grand Cherokee gets the driveway. If we didn't accumulate so much junk, both cars would fit in the garage but what are you going to do?

When i put the Magnaflow and angled tips on my car this past spring they told me that I should put some vaseline just above the tips. I never did, and never had any problems.
Besides the plastic they used is very heat resistant and dissipates heat well.
