    I have tips on my 99 TA that look kind of like that and I don't like them at all. I have dual Borla tips on my 98 formula however and I love them.

    Not a fan of quad tips. If it were mine I'd prolly run 4" shin spliter singles with a 45* taper.. Or 5-6" ovals with a 45* turned lip taper.. Just my pref and .02

    I got the chrome Mecham Design Performance tips and like them - about $80 for the pair as I recall back in 1999 when I got them. It was an option for the original Mecham tuner package from my first car. Took them off and put them on my second one. After 140k of use between the two cars they still polish up nice.

    They are $89 now for 7 1/2 or 6 in oval CAST aluminum, not stamped, and chromed nice and heavy. Fits 3" exhaust.

    I like those too. Corsa clones? They get my vote.

    Very similar to the Magnaflow system. I just think you need something to fill the bumper cutouts.

    Yes they are corsa clones but cost $150 for both. To the op I persoonally would get 4" corsa clones from 6LE or someone similar if you have the money or go with the second link you posted the ones with the 3.5" outlet.

    I might need a little help here. (as far as describing the difference).. The tips that Nevnorr82 show on his car are single wall and all the others shown are double wall. That could be the difference in the way they look......Angle cut...straight cut.... Oval... Don't know if it really matters as long as it fills the opening. Double wall helps too..!!!!!
