Don't you wish this car had center pipes?

Don't you wish this car had a center mounted exhaust pipe from the factory.
How cool would that look!
I love the sound of the car and all but...just wish her ass a little more...you know....and a little less pedestrian

Nope, not one bit. I like it on the driver's side, makes it easier for me to hear my exhaust burble. Also, I've heard people with Mini's burning their legs on the exhaust when getting things out of the rear hatch. Now, I know part of that can be blamed on stupidity, but I'm clumsy, I don't need help hurting myself.

I love the look of the Cayman and 911 GT3. Not sure our car could pull it off like that but I'd like to see it.

Center mounted exhaust pipes look too much like an... um... how do I put this? They look like an asshole on a car. Keep them on the sides where they belong.

I prefer it to be on the side. I actually don't like the dual exhaust of the other series or the center exhaust of the Minis. It looks weird to me.

I have to admit, I've cut myself on my friend's MINI with the aftermarket exhaust sticking out a little further. I guess that makes me manly?

I do like the center pipes like the higher end cars but i guess if i wanted a higher end car i should shell out the money for one. Not that i have it laying around or anything.

I wish we had dual pipes on both sides of the car like the 1M, even a single pipe on both sides would have been nice. My daughters Mini Cooper S has center pipes and I don't really care for them. but it's a Mini thing I guess???

I think dual center pipes would look great on the 1.
Reminiscent of the E28 5 series.

Hahaha, wasn't sure where you were going with that at first.

To answer the question...no, would remind me too much of a Boxster..not a fan. Doubles, definitely not, it's a Mini S thing. Just like LED's in the headlights..if I wanted an Audi...I would have bought one.

Saw a GMC 1500 the other night with Halo's...disgusting!
