Fake Akrapovic tips are all over eBay. Easy enough to find.

At 101mm diameter, might be too big to fit the cutout.

Get them of aliexpress from the Chinese suppliers mate, thatís all the eBay sellers do and make their profit. I got the same ones in the pic above for £44 delivered with dhl, I got them for a mk7 gti but sold the car. Thereís a few different sizes, they are listed on aliexpress

Get the real ones

However the real tips are around 600$ a pair about the same for m performance carbon tips. Iíd get an exhaust too instead of just the looks of one.

You need to order the right size. I used 63mm inlet with 76mm outlets. Thats as big as you can go for an LCI car.

If you want to use as is supplied then you need to shorten the oem exhaust by about 3". I didn't want to do this so removed the carbon tips by drilling out the pop rivets. The carbon tips then fit over the OEM Stainless tips but need a little packing as a bit loose. I used copper tape.

I then drilled the oem stainless tips and pop riveted them on. So now the carbon tips are removed with the oem stainless tips and can be cleaned easy.

Akrapovic don't make exhausts for diesels and don't sell tips separately so you won't find any genuine ones.
