should i do this

alrite guys, i need some input and some help here. I currently have the oem rear lip, but I have an i4... I do have dual exhausts, but I'm thinking of buying an exhaust system for i4 so you think it would be worth it to get someone to mold the other gap in the lip and paint it? so then there would only be one opening for the exhaust instead of two? and anyone have any idea how much this should cost?

well, the cap is for the oem bumper , i dont think it'll work with the rear lip. As for cracking, I don't think it'll crack that easily, but I guess i can try and find some quotes.

You can always just leave the second muffler hanging there and not use it

what they tell me is the constant shaking of the car due to the muffler vibration will cause the molding to start shaking, causing it to crack in the long run. I actually have a different way of going with this. Make a custom bracket on the bottom of the left hole, reinforcing the moldings, causing it to NOT hang lose and crack. it's stronger and it wont crack. wont e doing this soon though.. spent a grip on the j pipe with single hks
