Looks great!
Do those tips stick out too far in your opinion...

Not really.. maybe an extra 1-1 1/2 inches but not bad at all.

Thanks, so these tips replaces the stock tips right?
How hard is it to remove the stock tips? and put on these? Any welding involved?

you have to drill off the stock ones. finally glad to see another e90 with the edition tips. they add so much to the rear and i love how they stick out. makes the car that much more aggressive. get compliments all the time

I had the dealership install them which wasn't too time consuming for them. I agree that it does make the car look more aggressive.

Just in case anyone was wondering how hard it was to install the mirror caps... well it was super easy. I just used my fingers to pop off the mirrors and a small flathead screw driver to pop of the IB mirror caps. Install was simple, snap on and push for the CF mirror caps. It took 10 minutes total... super easy only a small flathead screw driver required.

If he ever decides to put on a diffuser they will look just right.

Car looks great. Almost a 4 door version of mine, just not sold on the mirror caps. Ah well, chacun son gout.

The silver wheels look great with Interlagos. I've seen the GTS wheels & black painted 220M wheels on IB & I didn't like them, but I'm not a big fan of black wheels in general.
