PostPosted: Tue Feb 05, 2019 12:53 pm    Post subject: Topgears carbonfibre tailpipes - any good? Reply with quote

Hi - Has anyone had a decent look or fitted a pair of these?

https://www.topgear.co.uk/porsche-911-997-2-carrera-carbon-tailpipes?search=porsche%20997

I'm seriously considering changing my pse boxes as they are failing and using TG valvetronic's boxes, which will need a pair of std style tail pipes.

I have black ones fitted and would want to stay black, so that means sourcing some in black or getting a pair ceramic coated. Black ones are available from the likes of D911 and TG do these CF ones. However I have no idea of their quality or how durable they would be.

So all experience on this product is welcomed.

Thanks

Matt

Fairly sure they are the ones I had on my old car. Can’t recall the brand but the price and look match up. They were very good, fitted easy and I liked the look

Here are some pics

I fitted a full Top Gear system fitted last September and opted for the carbon fibre tail pipes. Quality appears very good and they look the part imho.
