Akrapovic Carbon exhaust tips

hey guys, just wondering if you can just get the Akrapovic exhaust tips without the whole exhaust system (not really down to pay 8g for a few extra HP boost and like a 30lb weight difference) I'm only doing this for the cosmetic factor.

You can buy them by themselves, but I'm not sure what you can fit them too. They are bolt-on design, designed to bolt-on to the Akrapovic pipes. However I don't know the diameter of those pipes. I would guess 90mm which is wider than oem.

You should contact Cyba. He's making some 90mm tips which are slip-on and available in a carbon style similar to Akrapovic.

Akrapovic USA won't sell the tips unless you send photos of a damaged tip/exhaust.

Bmw is charging 8k for exhaust then additional $250 per titanium tip! I was quoted $9.2k out the door! I love the exhaust but it's kind of ridiculous
