Default Opinion (Dual or Quad)

So after hours of sitting in my room going back and fourth looking at pervious threads and pictures I'm haveing a hard time deciding on Between the Dual and Quad tips. I know its stupid but i guess its important to me .

forgot to mention that I'm going to B&B Bullets.

So i'm asking you guys what do you think?

I've always like the Dual look cause of my friends Z51 has it think its looks mean. But i'm looking for opinions and what you guys think is meaner? Stuck on the Fence here

For example do you guys think it looks meaner with Duals Or Quads and what kind of responses have you gotten or read about from people?

I would only have quads on my car, I never liked the dual look at all, To me the dual seems like it is unbalanced or something.

I also vote for the QUADS, it is "different and special" from most other cars.

A lot of high performance new cars use QUADS, for example: M-type BMWs, high performance Lexus, many Ferrari, Laborginnis (sp). . .

Quads only - duals just don't look right, or even close.

Shoulda made this a poll... I have good 20/20 hindsight huh?

Quads only. To me, duals are too big and look to much like a rice burner.

I agree with all of the above. There is too much space back there for duals, quads fill up the space perfectly. Take a look at the exhaust on the new C7.

I have speedway tips on the B&B PRT's. when these cars first came out a lot of people put chrome tips to cover the stock tips and they were never even, they looked bad. I like the way the speedway tips fit the lower panel and are easy to keep alined

With duals, it looks like something was left on the table, literally.

Can't say I agree with all of these "quad only" posts. I like the look of the quad tips, but if you want mean, dual is the way to go IMHO

I like both, but quad does look more aggresive

I like the look of the dual tips on mine...


The OP asked what looks Meaner, I think the dual tips look "Meaner" and the quads look more refined, classy

I perfer the way my BORLA XR1 sounds too
