Taking the plunge tomorrow! [o_o] [eek]

The up close photo of exhuast tips is prior to cleaning with Nevr Dull. Huge difference!

Thanks to "The Transporter" and "dluxxx" for all the help and advice.

Parts:

- Ebay Non S-Line Bolt on Diffuser for quads

- Staggered Porsche 997/911 Carrera S Exhaust Tips

- Nevr Dull Polish for exhaust tips.

UDPATED PHOTOS!

Cost Breakdown:

eBay Diffuser - Perfect Bolt On - $150 shipped
OEM Porsche Staggered Exhaust Tips - $200 (Awesome deal I got - ranges up to $500 or more)
Welding - $300 - this is by far the hardest part. Kinda on the high side I think. I made them do the right side over again which they were upset. But if I am paying... shiet better get done to my content at the very least. They also had to modify the inlet to center it perfectly. WARNING! After removing the OEM exhaust tips, it is not centered by 1-2". So they had to customize a small "S" shape you can see in photos.

Sound - same as OEM. Nothing changes. This is just pure cosmetic and not adding any HP or any sort.

I know guys that it is probably not perfectly centered by a mm here or there. But I gave them a hard time. I also decided to make it stick out just a little bit instead of flush like OEM to make a just a bit aggressive. But not exceeding the bumper whatsoever.

Thinking about painting either tips or whole muffler assembly gloss black to match the rest of my cars theme...

Any opinions?

Updated photos in first thread and breakdown! TIP: Get a great welder and I would stay there once they are lining and centering the tips. Make sure it is to your liking.

looks great @ Bklynjay. Got a question for you...Where did you find the wing over the top of your rear window?

@BklnJay where did you get your 997 tips from and how much were they?

Just wondering if you find them at a reasonable price

@SinCityA6 - I got if off eBay for mad cheap. $69 shipped. It's like thick heavy rubber. The edges are about a mm short but only if you look at it super close. It is attached to rear windshield through double sided 3M tape. Didn't glue it down since I didn't want the mess and possibly damage the window. Don't use theirs, I bought the 20lb heavy duty 3M double sided in any home depot. Clean the window and do it on a cool sunny day around 70-80 degrees. Then I used the blue 3M tape to hold it up place. Use a lot to press down. I actually carefully place a towel over and used 5lb weights to push down for 48 hours. Been on for two years now with no issues.

Here is an eBay link. Similar style and price.

Got them from a eBay seller. Got real lucky and talked him down to $200 shipped. On average USED they go for about $300-$400 for the pair. New, forget about it. Not worth it. I also used Nevr Dull to polish and clean up afterwards.

Here is the eBay link where I got mine. http://www.ebay.com/itm/301246861075?_trksid=p2060778.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Looks good man.
How did you get the rear and front emblem rings black? Purchased or painted?
