hey ppl,
my current exaust is just stock apart from a oval tip that is rusted to the max!!! the tip is like wat you see on most stock AU's, i think

my question is can i just get a new chrome tip put on? i know it would be heaps better just to get the whole exaust done but if a shiny tip is cheap i want to get one put on for now

what you think?

thanks
Daniel

a chrome tip will cost you 30-70 depending on style etc, plus you will have to fit iy tourself, alot of exhaust shops will prob throw in a chrome tip for free when u get it done.
an exhaust should be around the $400 mark fitted

Yeah a good exhaust tip will usually set you back ne where between $30-$100 unless you want something different :wink: As it has been said b4.

Most exhaust places might install it for free but then again they may not, would only usually set you back about $10-$20 to do so.

Im thinking of changing mine again, i was gonna go for a Custom BA GT tip but that was gonna set me back $150+ :shock:

IMO on ne falcon the Big oval tips with the rounded edges look the best! I think they are like 4' very nice. :P

You can hardly see that one dude :roll: Is it one of those oval tips? I reckon on any E-Series falcons those ones look the best :P

Yeah if you do have the funds then go the whole system, and get the tip put on at the same time. All i have is a 3' rounded edge tip nothing special. Its got heaps of carbon on it too lol i should have cleaned it more often oh well. :roll:
