Hi All,
Just noticed a split on one of the lips to one exhaust tip. So decided to replace the pair. Just can't make my mind up on whether to go for the twin ovals or stock singles.

I'd really appreciate thoughts....

Twin ovals (figure of eight) all day long for me....I have the stock singles and whilst they look good the above are much sportier to me! Cool

Twin ovals are more sporting and interesting in my opinion, but most importantly consider a by pass or swap silencers for less restrictive / lighter units if you haven’t got PSE. The thing needs to growl !!

It's the stock singles for me, they follow the lines of the bumper cut out better. Also the figure 8 ones are too fussy in my opinion.

Had twins on my car, changed to singles when I fitted the Carnewal exhaust, looks MUCH better IMO.

Still got the twins in the shed with the old box.

I have the twin figure of 8 ones. Prefer the single ones. Clearly the grass is greener etc!

Need to experiment with mine as I'm not sure they are on right. Can't decide whether the tip should be horizontal to the ground with the stagger of the large to smaller tips following the line of the bumper cutout, or set so that there is an equal angle.

I'm really torn now. Might just need to get both and experiment. If anyone know of either for sale please let me know. Just missed out a mint set on here last week, should have been quicker.

Its a personal thing imo and I did toy with get the twins at one point. Instead I had the singles on the car refurbed a bit and imo they suit the car perfectly. They also fit the cut outs better.

The 996 is understated and the two singles complement this fact.

Ha ha cheers mate Thumb

Can't go wrong then - that's the ticket.

The standard tips fit the cut-outs better but the quads do look a bit sexy Cool
