    You cant mate, hardly any metal left if you remove the exhaust tips, nothing could clamp there , maybe a weld , but not sure, you would need to change the backboxes

    Cheers

    yeah i was thinking that it could be done, i can weld it at work was just unsure wether it could have been a bolt on type.......i have seen some tips that i like there the same as the sri ones but bigger coz i think the sri ones are too small. also my mate has got a 07 sri and his tip it alot wider than mine did they fit different tips on older models

    If your changing to the VXR tips then ideally you would want the rear diffuser , or you would need to adapt your own SRI diffuser

    nah not yet, doing the insert myself as its going ford graphite grey (my car is black) to match the bootstrip i painted but having all the kit done by the pros. just need to get a quote for it all, my vxr tips are slightly larger than the standards so ill have to make the exhaust holes slightly bigger i think
