Options for carbon fiber exhaust tips?

I know Cyba on here makes carbon fiber tips that easily slip on the stock exhaust and they look like a quality product....but there's just something about the look/cut out of the MPE or even an Akrapovic style tip that looks so much meaner.

Before you lambast me for even considering an ebay replica....are there any other alternatives out there? Those of you that have tried a replica MPE or Akrapovic replica tip...any feedback?

Instead of going for the look of the MPE, why not just use the M Performance Carbon Fiber Tips?

Doesn't fit over stock exhaust, or so I've been told.

I thought Turner knows better... They don't fit stock exhaust at all!

To be clear, I'm not trying to be cheap or cut corners. I just really like the look of the MPE or Akra tips. Kinda blown away that Cybas tips are really the only legit CF aftermarket option other than unpredictable replicas.

Best bet would be replica M performance tips with 64mm inlet I believe

Are the CYBA ones even considered "real" carbon fiber?

Well they are the only ones that fit over the stock exhaust without any modifications needed.

LOL, the CYBA ones are real carbon fiber and good quality. Look great and no fitment issues.

If you want the same look of MPE, your only option is ebay replica.

Unfortunately I don't think these fit either without some sort of modifications.
