I don't think it matters if "DTM tips" are single, dual, or quadruple. In the DTM they used to route the exhaust tip(s) upwards so that they could squeeze out a couple more decibals of sound (freer flowing exhausts for more power) without getting penalized. Not sure what the allowable decibal was unfortunately. Anyway, this awkward direction of exhaust tips eventually became the hot item for people on the street... I was told this by a former employer, but I trust he wasn't BSing me since he had entered numerous E30s in the DTM.

Whenever I see cars with "DTM tips" I always grin. Do they know why they're called "DTM" or why they're even curled upwards? One day i'm going to design my own exhaust that will extend 10 feet above the rear bumper and see if people catch on ;)
