Default Post up your Rear muffler set-up!!! In need of inspiration!!

I've got a ucf21 myself with a stock exhaust system. Tired of scraping since the oem hangs so low, looking to up upgrade and custom a system. 2.25" pipes from cat out to x-pipe then to new sleaker mid muffler and out to the rear mufflers. Having trouble finding the right look for the rear cans and tips, help me out. Possibly Magnaflows 14829 with slightly slanted tips.Post up what you have for inspiration!!

Very nice Ls and set-up. What size are the tips on the muffler? Cat wise, I'm planning to cut off the flange and have the shop weld the pipe directly to the cat. About 1/2-1" difference I hear.

Lookin good!! Exactly what I was looking at. I was hoping to have the muffler shop space the cans a little further apart. Whats your set up looking like if you don't mind me asking

Because I think that huge mufflers hanging out from under the rear bumper isnt a good look on a car that is designed to have a luxurious appearance. I would like a slightly more lower not raspy note and would like to see what someone has done with aftermarket parts thats hidden but has a good sound.

that's good and all...

but if it's hidden or supposed to appear stock-looking why would you need a picture to know what it looks like?

and in comparison to a GS3 with stock exhaust, from the back this is very hidden. Plan on changing it as soon as my Nur spec arrives tho...

I think that a hidden exhaust looks really good.

I'm curious to know what would be the point of an exhaust all together at this point, most luxury cars don't really make loud noticeable noise in the first place. Kinda seems like an oxymoron.

I was curious about muffler tips and pointed downwards, but the rear bumper has that huge opening anyhow almost demanding a larger muffler to sit nicely inside.
