Are OEM tips adjustable?

My exhaust tips are not perfectly even on both sides and it drives me a little crazy. I know they are riveted to the exhaust but do the rivets only lock into a certain place on the exhaust? i.e. can I loosen the rivets, move the tips a little further out and then tighten it back up? Thanks!

Rivets aren't adjustable. If you wanted to adjust the tips, you would have to drill out the rivets and adjust the tips to the desired spot and then re-rivet them back on. This would more than likely require new holes to be drilled in the exhaust.

Thanks that was my fear. I wasnt sure if the rivets were drilled into specific holes in the exhaust or not. Damn.

Sounds like you need to adjust the rear bumper cover..not the exhaust tips

Maybe you're right...is there a way to adjust the bottom of the rear bumper?

There are 8 screws all the around the bottom portion of the bumper..you could try and loosen all or some and realign it to fit you tips better.

Thanks tibra I'll try that.

This morning I stood behind the car and looked straight down and it appeared that one side of the bumper was in fact sticking out a little more which makes the tips on that side tucked under.
