Replacement Vanguard Ti exhaust tips?

Does anyone know where to get replacement Vanguard Performance exhaust tips from? I've contacted several vendors, including Vanguard themselves, but have not received a response yet... Surely I am not the only one that's lost a tip. (I found it, after it was run over by a truck...)




I knew I should have rechecked them for tightness. The LF-A and 458 Italia pull off the tri-tip look far better than the E92...

I'm getting nowhere with Vanguard... No phone number listed on their site, and no responses to me emails so far. Does anyone know of another Ti tip that will fit this system? I'm actually tempted to take it off and sell it and run something else at this point.

I don't like the tips on my vanguard exhaust. I was looking for alternative for awhile but I haven't found one yet.

Good Luck!

Yeah, I tried that one a couple of times but no luck. I have a vendor looking into it for me, and Vanguard is checking for the tips. Were you able to get a set?

I was looking here:

http://www.alibaba.com/showroom/tita...aust-tips.html

Thing is, I don't want to have to order 60kg of exhaust tips...

I was actually laughing to myself until I realized how hard these things seem to be to source... I'll update this thread once I get some more info. I'm currently holding out for one promising lead...

OH! Thanks for reminding me of the Alibaba site. Love seeing what they have on the site.
