Just got a quick question.

I've heard a lot of people mention cutting/sawing the end of their exhaust pipe off on their cars. I've an EBII and its out the back way too far IMO - they only thing is I'm slightly worried about it ruining the plastic above the pipe as it looks like Ford intended for it to go out that far to clear the plastic bumper.

Anyone got any pics of theirs or an amount they recommend to be cut off? I'm not looking at getting a new tip - just want the current one shorter :D

cut it at an angle then so that there's still pipe above to keep it off the bumper.
o, and use an angle grinder, not a saw, unless you have a lot of time on your hands.

Ah alright thanks - I've put a line where I think it should go - and I've got to go into Midas to get my exhaust fixed so they said they could do it for me!
