What I'm basically trying to do is fit it on my ML500. Since the W203 has a better looking exhaust tip, I figured I can custom fit it on my ML.

My questions are:

(1) If you have it, where did you get it and how much?
(2) Does it have a bend towards the rear?
(3) How long is the whole pipe??

Thanks in advance guys!

It won't fit...

The pipe is extremely short since the C-class's tips are already bent and will not be able to clear the bend in the ML's pipe. Additionally, the C-classes already come with twin exhaust tips, so there is no way that you can adapt it to the ML's single.

Drew: I'm planning to "really" customize these tips.

Yes, they are duals going into a single, but I'm mostly interested in the size and OEM look of these tips. I will have to butcher the single stock pipe and adapt a "y" connector to it.

I am worried about the bend though. I'm trying to see if it is a bad enough bend that I have to really cut the tip short.

And yes, I have seen the tips at Formymercedes for the ML500, I think it looks too plain and out of place. This is why I am looking for an alternative.

Hey probably the best looking and easiest thing for you to do would be to take you ML to an exhaust place and get them to cut off your original tips and weld on a new set.
if you get one of these bolt on tips it tends to look a big ugly. far from the classy factory look you are after.

If you really want you can even try a Mercedes specialist shop and get them to install a Brabus/Carlsson/Lorinser/AMG tip on your car. but more pricey again.
