    Hi. I came across some data online that changing the exhaust tip or even cutting it to a bit smaller does bring some change in the sound that car produces. Also I was given accessories list by fiat caffe employee where a crome exhaust tip was available to purchase at a price of 2050.
    Can anyone please throw a light on this matter as i couldnt find any previous threads regarding tthe exhaust tip and improvement of sound of the car with minimal interference caused under the hood.

    Rest assured the sound/note is not going to change any which ways, since it's an MJD under the hood.

    Exhaust tips are purely for aesthetic value. The one with FASS is a Ricambi Originali and hence costs that much and is a bit ugly IMO. There are better looking ones in aftermarket. I guess you need to search before starting a new thread.

    dr.kush,

    I'm having this chrome exhaust tip and looks cool too.
    No sound change at all. A perfect fit and no need to cut the existing exhaust pipe.
    Will try to post the pic soon for your convenience.

    This is the original Fiat accessory that I have in my car. There's absolutely no change in the exhaust note. You can judge for yourself whether it makes any positive difference in the visual aspect or not. I bought this because I had read somewhere that after-market ones, if poorly designed, could affect the silencer unit. There are many better looking after-market ones available, but I think some modification maybe required to fit them.

    Are we a special breed of car owners that think so much about something that is just for looks, or do all car owners think like this :D
