They do look a little large in that first pic. That said, I think a nice diffuser will tone them down a bit. I had a Meisterschaft GT with very similar and it looked really nice with the tips tucked in tight to the diffuser.

I bet if you get the valved version you won't be changing again. I've been through 4 major brands now and could not be happier with the existing set up. Be interesting to follow your progress.
Meh, I don't mind switching it up. I drive the car a good deal (800-1000 miles per month) so a change in sound every few months is nice.

Also, I am buying this one used from Gintani so it is what it is. The cost of valved systems is beyond what I am willing to spend on an exhaust.
