Did your exhaust pipes align/ center in each side of the tips?

Very nice! I have to agree that this really is a great mod to set the car apart and just looks right! Can't wait to get my diffuser painted and put on... CF is nice... even toyed with the idea of matching body color... but decided to stay with stock color to keep things "clean".

Note that I'm running the Dinan exhaust which is slightly different requiring some minor mods to the muffler hanger bracket and clearance cutouts for the exhaust tips on the bottom edge of the covers so the two don't touch and vibrate. All in all the tailpipes had to move to the center of the car by about half an inch to get everything to line up. You will probably need a grinder and small drill to make this happen. Sounds like if you have stock set up though, it should bolt right on without any modification.

Now I'm just waiting to get diffuser painted next week... it just snaps in place.
Gotter done!

Nice! Got my backordered parts in yesterday and dropped off today for painting.

Was scheduled for install with other retrofits this friday. Then my stupid car gets a drivetrain malfunction again today.....the last day of its factory warranty! I had to rush it to the dealer to get it in under the wire. Will be on hold for this install and others now until I get the car back.

This thread has all the info you should need including exact part numbers. Note the diffuser is different if you have the regular bumper or M-sport.

Thanks guys.
If this were nsxprime forum, they would've yelled at me for not searching first.
As far as installation, is this an easy DIY or should I have a shop do the install.
Please give me tips on removal of diffuser and install if DIY is the way to go.
Thanks

Ha. Your so right. Surround view, alpina front air spoiler and exhaust tips on. Sadly paddles did not work. I have to also upgrade my steering cluster. That will be on hold now until I get those parts. It's only money right?

As far as pics go. I have to wait a few days. Had to leave early this morning for 3 day kids school trip. They will come my young Padawan. Will try one pic up tonight that I have on my phone of the tips.

This is a close up of the 750... It actually took some "adjusting" of the muffler hanging bracket to get things to line up as well as some grinding off the back of the trim piece... you don't want the pipe split by the trim as the direct exhaust would be too much for the part, nor do you want the pipe touching as the vibration of metal on metal would be unpleasant to say the least.

The bracket was re-drilled to allow approximately 1 in of movement toward the centerline. Sorry don'y have pic of this.

On the 750, make sure you also loosen the center support between the two exhausts, and the clamp attaching the exhaust pipes together so that it doesn't get in a bind. It takes two people and you need the car on a rack to do this.

Thanks again. Looks like I need to take this to the shop to get it right.

Tremendous !!!! Simply amazing. Nice work bud. So you went with a semi gloss black powder coat? What did they charge you and how log did it take?

Actually that is gloss. Needs a bit of cleaning and a better pic. $60 for both tips. 1 day turn around. You can do ceramic coating also for much better heat protection, but that could not be done in gloss, only matte. The coaters said powder should be fine in this application since they are a far from the engine and only tips.
