Help! Black or Blue Tip Exhaust Tips

Greetings guys. Me and my buddy are looking at Cyba's exhaust tips but couldn't decide between the black chrome or the blue tip exhaust tips. Your opinions/ suggestions are greatly appreciated. Also, if anyone knows a carbon fiber look exhaust tips other than Akrapovic (which is too expensive IMO). Our e92 M3's are leased hence, we decide not to mod the whole exhaust and stick with just replacing the tips. Thanks!

I think they sell both stock style and slash-cut style tips.

Remember, these are not bolt-on per se. You have to but the rivets off the stock ones and rivet these on.

TBH, I don't like the looks of those tips. They look too ricer.

I prefer rolled tips like OEM or Akra
