Anyone know of a good (and inexpensive) way to change the single exhaust tip to a dual? Can you swap out the tail section of the exhaust of the 230 with a 320 or is there another way?

I mainly want to do it for looks since I understand there is no major HP difference with changing exhausts and I already like the sound of the stock resonator.

Thanks.

Do you want two tips on the same side of the car, or one tip on each side(or two on each side for that matter)?

slkpwr,

Yes, exactly like that. That is the look I'm going for. I thought the 32 rear muffler wouldn't fit on 230 since the piping is different.

I may have been mistaken on the 320. I thought it had dual pipes but I guess I was wrong.

The 320 does have dual pipes, but they converge into one exhaust tip.

I also want the "twin pipe" look on my 230. someone suggested getting 2 oval ones and putting them together, but that won't fit into the hole in the bumper, would require a body-cut.
I'm looking for a straight replacement of the single oval chrome tip, really i need a twin-tip !

Hi cmorosco..
We are looking for the same cheap mod !
I looked at the link you gave, and for me the tip for the S-Class W220 is what we are looking for, eg: two tips attached to one pipe. (SLK has only one pipe from the back-box). However, I'm not sure if it will fit into the cut-out in the bumper. But its the right application, if we can find the same for the SLK then it'll be perfect.

Exactly. I'll try to get in touch with them and see what's available. I'll let you know if I find one that'll fit.

So the S-Class ones are $360 a set and you have to buy them together. They come as a Left/Right set but I think the left one is the only usefull one for an SLK. That's too expensive for me. I'm better off buying a a whole new rear muffler from Remus for that price.

Yeah. not exactly a cheap mod anymore !
thanks for investigating. I did a search on the web and can only find single-tip components.

Thanx Krill...
sadly nothing for the SLK :-(
I think trying to "butcher" the tips they sell to make it fit could be quite tough !

cmorosco, mentioned S-Class tips - that's the same for 1/2 price.

There is still a chance that S-Class tip will be a direct fit, but you need to find a store that will take returns if it's not.
