Hi RalphVa,Has anyone found any exhaust extensions that attach to the present dual exhausts but bend out to where they're seen?

Found an outfit called cardid. They ask you to input the year and model car, but NONE of their extensions they show have the bend at the attachment point that would be necessary to allow the 3's exhaust tips to project below the rear plastic piece and out below it. They're just straight exhaust extensions, which would look dumb.
MV Tuning Rear diffuser and rear window spoiler. Went to a muffler shop and they used their own bends over the MV Tuning ones. This summer I plan on having a Vibrant Resonator installed and a muffler delete and new tips.I'm looking for ones that'll just clamp in place over the existing exhaust tips and allow the exhaust to go straight back like on the 6s and MX-5s. None of these seem to do that. The mv-tuning ones can be done at any local shop that deals in exhaust work. I know a friend who has a shop that fabricates entire exhaust systems. Really don't want to do this.
The existing exhaust tips (hidden behind the rear facia) point downwards. So, any clamp-on tips would need to have a near 90 degree bend to direct the exhaust straight out. Think you'd actually get a slight performance increase because the air flow underneath the car would serve to aspirate the exhaust. Then the turbulence in the back (that deposits dirt onto the back bumper) might stop that. Probably no performance gain, just looks.
