Exhaust...

Alrighty... I'm looking at replacing my muffler. The original tip has gone to crap (imo), and I have to repair a leak that's been "ghetto'd" by one of the previous owners. Here are some general designs I'm looking at:



What's everyone's thoughts/opinions?

No no no no... these are just the tip designs I'm looking at. I'll stick with a muffler that has the stock design/sound... but want a different tip design.

Nothing that bends. Nothing that is bigger than 3". Everything else is game. Why don't you get an exhaust too?

$$$ is the main issue. I would love to get an all new exhaust system with custom tips (I'm leaning towards something like the dual square - #2), if anyone knows where I could get a new, custom setup for relatively cheap, please let me know.

Yea #4 is the best. #3 is just gay on most cars as well it tends to cause the exhaust soot to settle on the paint. Saw it on a white VW and it looked really bad.

I'm leaning towards something like #3... I think it'll look good on the back of my E23, it's got the more boxy body... we'll see I suppose.

Next stop: Exhaust design.

Really? Other than the shape of the tip I think #2 and #4 are pretty much a toss up. I figured with the shape of the E23 #2 would be nice. Shouldn't have any sound difference with the different shape.

I'll do some photochoppin' with 2 & 4 and post 'em up here in a bit.

I live in a town of rice/hicks (aka RollaMo) and I see #1 and #2 on just about every piece of crap putting around town. So that's kind of ruined it for me. Plus, BMW has never had a square tip. I think.
