ECS UNIVERSAL Swivel Exhaust Tips - 4.0"

Does anyone have these fitted on an E53? ECS website mentions it fits E53. I thought max diameter on E53 tips should be 3.5" for them to fit in the exhaust openings but these are 4.0".

4" will be too large for the bumper cutouts. I have 3.5" and that is right on the limit.

Both of OBs rides are very well kept and modded. As are yours Prop. Some of the finer examples on the forum. But I guess they HAVE to be well maintained given the mileage both of you do on them away from home base. Furthest Red has been from home lately is Houston.

We'll be putting at least 3500 miles on the F15 in a few weeks though. Disney and then a family reunion down on the Gulf side of southern FL. We can't wait to get out of dodge.

On topic, with the size of the E53, I think 4" might actually start looking a little too big? Maybe?

ECS also have 3.5" size. Never seen a pic of an E53 with these carbon fibres but they look very cool, at least on my X6 and I think would look fantastic on our E53.

Just make sure you have 6.3" from the edge of your muffler to the end of the tips that they don't stick out to far. I needed to weld mine directly to the muffler to avoid sticking out too far.

I rock Dinan mufflers... No such thing as sticking out too far.
