My "chrome" tips were anything but chrome... It
was time to change them.
There is two ways to do it:
1- Remove the muffler then work on the tips.
2- Your muffler is one long piece that goes to the catalytic
converter, in this case it might be easier to remove the rear
bumper to have access to the muffler tips.
Cost: I bought a set of DTM tips (DTM - 3 Inch x 9
Inch x 2.5 Inch Inlet) for $22.95 ea. Ask them to ship you
two of the same length.You will need to have access to a welder
to weld the tip to your muffler.
You can still buy the BMW chrome tips from the dealer
at about $28 Cdn (US$18) each. They look good and install
in no time. No cutting, welding, clamping - a simple push
on operation. Part # 82119401504. (Thanks to Roman)
