: I know what you are talking about--- the SS DTM tips ARE a bit long. But after looking at similar DTM tipped exhausts on other cars, I chose the SS because the tips are far enough out from the rear valance so that a "soot shield" is not necessary to keep your rear-end paint job from getting ruined by the exhaust soot. If you ever notice a car with DTM tips and a small square aluminum piece covering the rear bumper just above the tips- it's for this very reason. With the SS exhaust I never see any build-up of soot.

: I think the B&B Triflo has shorter tip lengths, tho.

: : Is it me, or is the new AA exhaust tip the ugliest exhaust tip out there?!? What where they thinking...i mean, the tetris look wasn't too bad, but those new tips...dude, it gives me chills. I thought the old tips looked tight....geez, someone should have told them if it's not broke, don't fix it! Oh, who knows of some DTM tips that are really short (like half the length of the supersprint) and REALLY angular? thanks
