Akrapovic tips on stock exhaust.

Anyone here who has got this to work?







The tips fit perfectly in diameter for the stock pipes and the length is also spot on, but when trying to fit both they are to close to each other. My first thought was to heat up the left pipe and force it outwards but when inspecting there is a plate attached to the pipe making the attachment to the car.

Thanks for sharing. I really wanted to get these tips but based on your photos it looked like it'll be tricky to fit.

Only thing I can think of is using a cut of wheel to cut off one side then shift it across a little and weld it back on.

Yes, it is tight. When i ordered them i was aware it might be an issue and planned to cut off some of the carbon fibre to make them smaller. But when received, they look so good i don't want to mess them up.
