No sir. They will not fit.

However they make a kit particularly for the GFX cars. Normal tips are 4", these are 3".

Lemme know if we can help you out with that since we're the Corsa people here!!

Im in the same boat right now.. i bought the gfx kit and its not going to fit with my borla tips i think im going to have to cut the tips and add something else on. still trying to decide if i want square tips that are visible or try to go for a no tip look and just have the gfx bezel look like the exhaust tips

You can run "tipless" as we've done it on a few cars as well. The only thing to watch for is that some people want to cut the tips off so that you can't see them.

I strongly advise against this since the heat shields in the GFX won't be able to protect them from the actual exhaust heat.

The MBRP tips are the "business" and look rediculously awesome.

Hit me up if you need any help with them.

I have seen a few kits that have had them melted around the exhaust tip due to this.

Protect your GFX kit from the heat! Get the proper tips or have some fabbed up.
