New car, need help.

This is my first car, I have always had trucks, so this is a whole new world for me! So my question is, are these chrome "tips" removable? And if so, how? I do not care for how they look and they catch rocks. Thanks!

They are not bolted on but anything is removable with a torch or saw.

Idk how great the car would look without the chrome tips. Maybe you can look into having them painted black so they can blend in. But yes, they can be removed.

Thanks guys! I planned on seeing how it would look with out them, and going from there, but I want a whole new diffuser, I just cant find them. I'm thinking quad tips would look better to me. Do you have to remove the whole back bumper to remove the diffuser? I seen a how to video that they did remove the whole bumper, just wondering if there was a way around that.

Ok guys, I have an appointment tomorrow to have the muffler delete done, should I go ahead and delete the resonators now too? I also found the diffuser I want, the 1le, and I found a how to on here about removing the diffuser without removing the whole bumper. Just thought I'd share!

No keep your resonators they are small and will reduce any drone/rasp. Wait until u have the ways tips and diffuser before u do the muffler delete. I did muffler delete with said tips at same time so they self everything together. It was $100. The diffuser is super easy to tatie off. I have LS3 also

Why do you say to wait until I get the tips and diffuser? It will probably be awhile before I do any changes to the car other that deleting the mufflers. Hes only charging me $60. The how-to about removing the diffuser made it seem easy enough, just stressed the idea of having some patience haha

Looks awesome, but "cutting, drilling, and riveting"? sounds scary haha.

How do you remove these? No screws or bolts, just these all the way around
