Finally got my quad tips installed

Here are a few pics for those who want to see what it will look like. I like it but I would probably like to do an upgrade to possibly Megan exhaust next...

That looks sweet. I have a alpine white M-sport also and those pictures really got my juices flowing.

Questions,
where are you located,
Where did to get the tips and the rear diffuser and
Who did the work for you.

Thanks in advance.

I'm in the San Francisco area (Dublin). The diffuser I got from jenks89 and the tips I got from sbrown35. There is a guy who sells the tips which are shipped from china for about 130 a pair. The tough choice was to pick the color on the tips, they come in a few finishes and looks.

Looks good can you take a direct shot from the rear? They look a little small in my opinion from what I see so far.

sure...I would have liked them to be a bit bigger, maybe like 3.5" but I could not find any tips unless I upgrade to Megan... I'll post some better pics later on.

Seeing them in real life they look well balanced and not too small (IMO).

Are the outer tips longer than the inner ones? Could be an optical illusion, but I would think they would be the opposite (inners longer than the outers like the M5).

If you look at his third picture in the original post you will see the outers are shorter (as with mine).
