Default Exhaust Poll

Hey Everyone,
I have a question for you all. I just purchased my first Vette! Woohoo!
However, it has a Flowmaster exhaust, which I really like the throaty sound, but I really don't like the two exhaust tips instead of the OEM look of four.
My question is.....should I replace the Flowmaster tips with some OEM tips??
Please vote, and or leave comments.

I kinda like the two. It would not bother me as long as I liked the sound. Can't see them when your driving.

Looks kind of odd, does Flowmaster sell a 4 tip set up you can bolt up? Congrats on the new Vette btw!

Looks a little empty to me. Four just fill the space better, unless you get some of the elongated tips like from SLP.

Two looks good (or ok) when they are wide on the rear end (like the 2002 WS6 i had), but for the corvette and the closeness of the pipes, 4 looks better IMO.

It's up to the OP, if it sounds good as-is why change?
OTOH if OP has money buring a hole in the ol' pocket and can't live w/ 2, go for 4.

I think 4 is the best look as it fills up the space far better than 2 with a faux filler. I also dislike the sound of a Flowmaster on a Corvette! Just too Camaro or Mustang sounding, i.e hotrod. Sounds cheap!

The appearance of the exhaust (tips) ranks far below the functional aspects of the exhaust but it's important none-the-less. For form and function I'm partial to the Corsa Sport Exhaust with the slightly elongated, flared (almost 4" tall) quad-tips. Here's an old photo of my car showing the Corsa exhaust quad-tips.

I wouldn't change the exhaust based on a popularity contest but if you prefer the look of quad-tips and cost isn't a concern change the tips (or the entire exhaust) to get the look and sound you like. If there's something about the car you want to improve....do it!

If you hate the look and money is not a problem then why stay with two tips?
