Default Exhaust Tip...suggestions?

Hi Club Lexus...I just wanted to get a little advice from you. My stock exhaust tips are dirty, kinda rusted...I could clean it...but wanted to get a better looking exhaust tip with a performance look as well. I wish I could go f sport, but the price...also I don't really plan to get an aftermarket exhaust or muffler because I don't want too much of a sound unless its from an intake at full throttle ... But anyways what do u recommend? I'm torn between a simple mirror/polish ss/chrome or a titanium blue burnt finish....also do u recommend any brand just for tips?

I looked at a few like magna flow and seen some online stating they were "HKS" tips with etched logo but I dunno if those r knock offs.

Incase I do go exhaust tip on a stock exhaust/muffler...do u recommend a clamp on or weld on?

Also any style u recommend...I don't wanna end up messing up the look and make it look ricer or ghetto.

Thanks in advanced fellow club lexus peeps!

If you want to stick with the OEM look, get GFX tips and call it a day. Only $30 to $50 bucks depending on where you get them from. Hell I'll sell you mine for $30 if you'd be willing to cover shipping from Canada.

The GFX tips go on just like the OEM ones, which are screw-on I believe. They are also angle-cut so that they flow with the rounded bumper better than the OEM tips. Whether you weld, screw, or clamp them on, you won't be able to tell once its done since the muffler tip will sit far enough into the bumper. I'd say go the screw-on or clamp-on route since neither are permanent.

If you want something aftermarket, get the M2 exhaust on eBay, bolt it on and you're done.
