Mein Auto: 2006 325xi Arktis Met
Inexpensive Chrome Tip mod

Being new to BMW's i purchased a 2006 e90 325xi, love the car, but spending some extra bucks to make it a little better looking (atleast in my opinion). I first tinted the windows 35%. Great mod, car looks great with that percentage! One thing i noticed on other bimmers was the chrome tips on the exhaust. I looked at them directly from the bmw sites and they cost a little over 50 dollars i believe, atleast the ones i saw (could be off). I decided i would try to get the tips perhaps at a cheaper price just to get rid of the old rusty black looking stock tips. I stopped at Fleet Farm and picked up these two tips for about $8.00 each tax included. I like the looks of them. I adjusted the tips a little better after the pictures, 1 seems to be "in" too much on the pictures, got that adjusted after but didnt take the pictures. Hope it helps someone like me that wants to save some money and get a better look.


Let me know what you think.

After my car was hit in the rear by an inattentive driver, the tips on the exhaust had to be replaced. I opted for the Dimisa tips. http://www.dimisatips.com/
(I also had the is bumper installed since I needed a new bumper too.)

Just keep using Never Dull on them and they won't rust, and if they do start to rust, the Never Dull will clean it off with little effort. I think your new tips look real good.

Don't get me wrong, I think they look great and for 8 bucks each, you can just replace them, no need to clean them - even never dull will cost you as much as an entire tip. Just throw a new set on annually and they will always look great!

Never Dull costs about $8.00, and you're right, the cost of one tip.
