Just bought some carbon fiber exhaust tips. Just looking at my stock tips, it doesn't look like it would be easy to access. Anyone have tips on how to remove stocks and install carbon tips?

2 ways to get the finishers off as the are attached, each by 4 nuts from the back side of the rear tail panel. The obstacle after the mount nuts is the 4 flanges wont ley them pill through the rear grill without removal.

1. The book way is to remove the rear bumper to unbolt from the rear. ( Shop time at your dealer rate is about 4 hours on average )

2. The short cut when Alan installed his was by removing the rear engine lid to gain access to the 4 bolts. Bent the metal tabs in of the OEM finishers to pull through the rear grill, the CF finishers had enough flex to bend in on their own. This was on a coupe so I am not sure if removing the rear section of the engine lid is any easier than the bumper.
