2 Different Exhaust Tips for XR?

Hi,

I'm in the process of shopping around to replace my muffler and noticed that there are two dual exhaust replacement parts (both very expensive I might add) - one with the Chrome exhaust tips and one without. I was surprised because I can't recall seeing an XR without the rectangular chrome exhausts....that is until I poked around in this forum and found this picture:



I take it this is what the parts catalogue refers to as "dual exhaust WITHOUT chrome tips?" I've never seen an XR like this in the wild.

wonder if its early production.... or maybe the fancy tips were optional

We had the angled down tips. I noticed the rectangular tips on other XRs, and liked that look instead of the boring angled down look. There are 2 different lower rear bumper parts to match the cut out, or lack there of.

I was always tempted to cut out a half round section and add 3" round chrome tips on our XR. In the end never bothered.

Re: 2 Different Exhaust Tips for XR?

I have seen a few of these before on Outlooks (it's rare), and I've also seen a few Traverses like this.

It is possible for you to get the one with the chrome tips, but you will need to either buy a new lower portion of the rear bumper (because they have slots for the exhaust to fit in), or cut them yourself.

I was actually thinking about seeing if I could get a rear lower bumper from a second gen Acadia and then getting the dual exhaust system for that because I really like how the dual exhaust system looks on the second gen Acadias.
