Forget about your tips. The GB sign is more impressive.

It's stands for Giulia Bella.

Great tips, any chance you could share a link to the Ebay add...

Also how difficult to remove old and fit these?

Cheers
Andy

Presume these are fake tips - the £50 Aliexpress Chinese Akrapovic type ones? Still look pretty good. What's the build quality like and how easy to fit/how do you fit them? I've a Remus backbox and was looking at their cf tips but couldn't warrant £500 for them!

How do you find the remus back box? Has it made much a difference to the noise level?

Initially it wasn't as much as I'd expected if I'm honest but after a couple of thousand miles it's definitely louder. Not boy racer, in your face louder, just sounds better overall - idling, giving it some beans, on the downshifts, letting off the gas. No drone either as just a back box. More audible feedback in the cabin too and I'm told it sounds better from outside (noone else drives my car so never heard it drive away).

At £40 a pair I'm assuming they are Chinese fakes 😇, anyway here is the link: -

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2Pcs-Akra...53.m2749.l2649

That said, the quality is OK. The carbon looks real and the construction is solid enough. Please NOTE I made a mistake with the inlet size and had to do some metal stretching to get them to fit over the pipes. Probably 63mm would be better 😕 for my Wizard system, certainly best to measure your pipe size more accurately than I did. The Akrapovic decal looks to be the weak part, but no great loss if it falls off.

Fitting is just a case of removing the centre under panel, each of the 'Alfa fake' tips has two screws and one bolt that are easy to undo. I released my back box from the hangers to give a bit more wiggle room to get the original tips out.

Easy enough to return the look to standard as nothing gets damaged.😀

Nice. Does it change anything in the sounding of the exhaust or thatís just a visual enhancement?

Just visual. To get better sound you have to change the back box at least.
