Oval Exhaust Tips

Does anyone know of an exhaust system out yet with oval tips one on each side?

I believe Supersprint will put any tip you want on there you just have to wait for it to come from Italy which is like 3-4 weeks I think, thats how long I waited for mine

Would be interesting to see how the oval tips would look. They look great on the M5/M6.

If a manufacturer would do the single oval tips per side, I think it would only happen exhausts that use a y transition to the dual tips. This potential requirement would rule out Supersprint.

Instead you'd be focussing on a titanium exhaust (Ericsson, Dixis, Freiheit, Vorsteiner) or UUC (only SS exhaust I know of that has a y split from the canister). Of course the Bastuck MotorSport is a single pipe all the way through.

You meant one oval tip each side, I see, I was referring to 4 tips but ovals.

The single large ovals might appear to be emulating Audi or might construed as ricer. Regardless, would like to see it before coming to a conclusion.

Supersprint does that I believe. They are made to order, so however you'd like, we'll tell them to make it that way. Let me know. Thanks!

Im not sure I think SS could handle it, they do make the entire thing in house. Considering the owner of Ericcson just died of cancer I dont think you can get them to do it and I definitely wouldnt go cutting stuff off and trying to weld things back on titanium. As far as the other three thats not a bad idea Grizz
