Exhaust finisher/tips on sedan

Anyone have pics of their V6 sedan with the OEM exhaust finisher/tips?
I think they protrude to much and aren't large enough.

Any good aftermarket chrome tips?

They are not the best but if you install them upside-down they look a little better. Here check this out.

I think they are fine where they are but there just too small and they point down. Only way to cure this is an aftermarket exhaust.

HFP! Just enough of a drop to make it look good and perform even better! It's all about subtlety.

I bought two of them from I believe autozone... they are stainless steel (rust free) and are oval-ish in shape. They are rolled on the end and look terrific. I actually painted the inside of them black (poured enamel paint inside and rolled it around until covered evenly). It looks alot better than having the inside silver. Has held up flawlessly. They look MUCH better than the Honda tips and I believe cost about $25 total.

The rear of the V6 needs something to announce it's presence. Have actually gotten comments from people shocked a Honda has dual exhaust!

Good Luck!

Actually I only have the HFP kit on the front of the car. The weight of the stereo system brings down the rear end just a bit so I needed to balance out the front. Had this same set up (fronts on, rears off) on my '91 and '99 coupes and never had a problem. I did have the car re-aligned after the kit was put on. Camber wasn't a problem, toe was. After re-alignment, everything is dead smack center of the specified ranges.

Finally got the exhaust tipz !!! They're look great !! .... and I only shelled out $12 for both!!

I bouth these 2.5"x4.5" round chrome exhaust tips. Rolled tip and all. Bought them at O'Reilly's autoparts.
They're great!! Best bang for the buck!! Greatful I didn't buy the $65 Honda OEM tips.

I'll see if I can post pics a bit later

My only slight worry is that they would fall off ... they have the three screw ons that "bite" your exhaust pipe .. it's been 2 days since and they're still there so ..

Whats a good exhaust that gives a clean, luxury sound? I like the sound of the exhaust on the Infiniti's(my accord was stolen, but still curious to know). I like the not loud, but smooth sound of the exhaust.

For the 7th gen AV6, cut your resonator for a straight pipe and you'll get the almost G35-ish tone .. if that's still not enough then cut your pre muffler also .. all this for <$50 at any muffler shop.
