Carbon fiber exhaust tips- recommendations?

I want to switch out my chrome OEM tips for carbon fiber. Can you recommend carbon fiber tips that are sold separately? I don't want to do an exhaust replacement.

Still looking

Ok, it's been 4 months and I'm still looking for slip on tips for the stock non- competition exhaust to replace the stock chromes. Any experience out there? Anyone try the Aerobons?

The specs should work, but you will need to cut the pin.

or possibly, you can try and cut a notch on the tips so it can slip right on like the stock tips.

I'm amazed there aren't more options out there! I'm looking too and this is all I've found.

I finally gave up and went with the M Performance black chrome tips. Since I was adding the carbon fiber diffuser at the same time, it actually looks better without so much CF back there. I left the black tips extended out about 1/2 inch beyond furthest inward position for a slightly more aggressive look, and it looks great! (I riveted the tips to the exhaust pipe with steel rivets to keep them from loosening; it's the OCD in me!).
