Chrome tail pipes look very good and fitting them to the downward curving exhaust works. Always preferred the earlier exhaust, because of the chrome fittings, but when I replaced the exhaust it came with the downward curve. Never thought of sawing them off. Have you a source for the chrome fittings?

I bought the chrome tail pipes on a german webshop  : https://oldtimer-ersatzteile24.de/index.php?a=60001&bewertung_anzeigen=1#/dfclassic/query=Exhaust%20pipe&session_id=93d576b717dcaf0cf4d33e0fb9261676&query_name=match_and , they sell them in a few different sizes , i bought the 48mm without the bolt underneath becouse the tailpipes of my aftermarket rear muffler are almost 48mm , the 45 to 48mm has an bolt underneath

Thanks will look. Must measure the tail pipes though. Mine are supposed to be genuine Mercedes spares. What you have done looks really good never liked the curved one but thought I had no choice.

This is a great find!  My car had the straight chrome pipes when I got it.  Eventually I had to install a new Timevalve system with curved pipes.  The chrome looks so much better!  Looks like I'll be cutting the curved tips off in the Spring....     Cheers,
