I was looking at a F10 M5, the tips are very similar to the 1M but about 1/2 inch larger.
I was hoping for something without a rolled end but the larger M5 tips may look good.

If you want to switch your stock chrome tips for black satin I think the stock tips from the E60 550 sport are a direct fit, straight cut black.

Can this be verified? Do you know the OD of the 550 tips?

Hmm, I'm curious about these black chrome tips from the 550i.

Found these pics here:

I'm doubtful they'll work as a purely clip on replacement, as they look to be even shorter than the existing 1M chrome items.

Here's a better image of my completed tailpipe mod :

Dirk,

Are the black slash-cut tips you used OEM BMW parts? If so, do you have a part number?
