Chrome Tail Pipe

#1 Post by george@gmpy.co.uk » Sat Sep 01, 2018 11:06 pm

Hi all
I fancy putting a chrome Tail Pipe on my 214SEi ? All the ones I have looked at have rather large appeture at the connection end though they all claim to be universal.. but would not the gaps spoil the exhaust efficiency..?
Any thoughts would be appreciated
George

They slide over the tailpipe and clamp on so fully universal. Does nothing to the exhaust other than make it pretty.

Just done this to mine, pics on Instagram. As above it's only cosmetic but makes a big difference. Sourced mine on eBay for a few pounds once I'd worked out the diameter. All sorts of sizes available there.
