Hey guys,

Could you guys that have a BA XT/Futura/Fairmont and have a aftermarket exhaust show me the tips you have put on. I am asking as these BA's usually don't show the the tip of the stock exhaust as it is pretty much hidden by the bumper. Have you guys modified your bumper?

Someone told me just to put the lower part of an XR bumper on the back but I think it would look s**t unless you have the rest of the kit.

Any pics would be much appreciated guys.

Cheers

I need teh same advice. I have been told you need to cut off part of the existing pipe and weld on a XR pipe with the tips

I left my XT bumper stock (nice sleeper look and I think it looks nice and clean without an exhaust) but there's nothing to stop you cutting out a section of the bumper for a fancy tip.

With mine, they cut a slight semi circle out of the bumper and use a dump style tip:

I dont have any pics at the moment, nor do I have a digital camera and my new phone doesn't have the cable so if you really want the pic, pm me your number and i'll mms it to ya.
