I used to love the dual exhaust on the Maxima, the Altima, pretty much any dual exhaust car. Now that I have the GTO, with it's BIG dual exhausts, everything else just looks kind of lame. Anybody else notice this?

I actually think the rear end of the Goat is one of it's best features.

I agree, the stance of these cars really highlight the wide track look. From the rear, they look low, wide and mean. The Borla 5's look like chrome cannons.......:cool

You know what? I also like the exhaust tips on the Maxima. So much that I paired an '04 Maxima with the goat. I just wish the goat had the Bose system that the Max has.

Personally i don't like anything wider than 3". Beyond that it just seems ostentatious. To me, tips should be a subtle, understated feature that complements the car rather than acts as a showpiece.

and 5" tips? good lord that's just rediculous.

Then you'd probably hate the Corsa exhaust I had on my '98 C5. Click on the pic for larger view.

Here's what i've done in the past:

On my camaro i used 3" black chrome tips. In hindsight i would probably have been more happy with shorter tips, and probably chrome or stainless. The black chrome is very hard to see from the back.

On my truck i bought a pair of OEM 1971-72 corvette tips, they're only 2" outlets with rectangular enclosures.
