AliExpress M Tips

Hi - What do you guys think about this: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000200957909.html

They look sick and sort of a cost effective way for the m performance look on the tips for a m4cs.

Thoughts?

Shipping time was less than 2 weeks for me from Aliexpress. You're literally getting the same thing made from the same factory, you're paying extra for better customer service.

Tips are welded to the muffler on the CS, it's somewhere on the forum.

Maybe, maybe not. The ones at XPH never seem to be in stock and depending on where they are sourced might take just as long. Why are the MPE style CF tips at IND so expensive. They look very nice also and more authentic.

Once in stock, we deliver XPH tips within 2 days anywhere in the US. We ran out due to high demand but are getting more very soon.

Im not familiar with these exact tips but please be aware, just because the tips look similar in picture does not mean they are the same .
We had the option to offer similar tips for half the price and we would still be making the same profit.

We decided not to because the cheaper tips did not look as good, their fitment was not great either. (carbon fiber cut not as clean, silver tip stick out an extra 1-2 inch, low carbon fiber quality)
We address some of the differences in this video



One last point i would like to make, when you buy from us you get to return the product for any reason without paying restocking fees. If you get it from China, you will need to communicate with an overseas vendor regarding a return and even if they approve it you still have wait weeks for the exchange and pay shipping which makes the return useless

Will these fit an aftermarket exhuast like Remus, or are they designed for Stock or MPE exhaust?
