Default side pipes on a C5

So has anyone seen or do you have side pipes on a C5 or if its possible i think it would look pretty crazy and sounds bad ***.

I'm sure it's possible, but I don't think the C5 can pull the look off. A car needs to look like a muscle car in order to get away with it.

Only way I think it would look even remotely good is if you can get side skirts similar to the Mustang that has exhaust ports...but the side exhaust like the old shelby wouldnt look right IMO

Side-skirts are for weeinies; either dump the exhaust right out the side, or go home (but you're right, it wouldn't look good on a c5/6 imho)

Been discussed many times, and won't work because of the C5/C6 frame layout.

I think it should still come out the back.

There's more holes in that C5 body than a Snoop Dog video.

Those C4's with side pipes look like azz IMO. Just saw one two weeks ago at a car show.

Now that does look pretty darn good! Thats one nice looking FRC! But I still think the C5 looks better with some big ole tips sticking out the rear. Every time I see a C5 with it's tiny stock tips it makes me sad.
