Recomendations for bigger bolt on exhast tips

I have a set of these on the way now. It looks like they use internal pieces of spring steel to clamp in place over the factory tips. I will report back and post photos when they arrive. I find it interesting that they are etched CX-5 Skyactiv

My two cents, I'm thinking those would look better if everything on the insides was blacked out with some high heat paint. Wouldn't be so obvious that they're just slipped on over the factory tips.

Good idea Mantra 7. If they fit well I'll do that with some flat black exhaust system paint. From the photos at least it looks like only the exterior is polished bright so hopefully I will get good adhesion to the interior.

Exhaust tips black

I mounted stainless steel black powdercoated exhaust tips.
They are bolt on, easy to mount also.
I used a reciprocating saw to cut off just behind the original tips.

They are really large, diameter 115 MM !

Follow up: I received these from ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/2-x-Stainle...0AAOSwkbVczCto
The quality seems good, they are a reasonably heavy gauge steel with chrome plating. The are a slip fit over the factory tips with 4 pieces of spring steel tack welded to the inside of the tips to secure them.

But I feel that the manufacturer should have designed in some type of set screw or clamp to secure them. I had visions of one of them vibrating loose and bouncing down the freeway behind me and through someone's windshield. The insides of the new tips were very dirty with manufacturing residue so I cleaned them with a brush and Simple Green and then some acetone. I also wiped down the factory tips with acetone. Then I spread a little JB Weld on each of the strips of spring steel and slipped them over the factory tips. Once that dried I gave insides of the tips a couple of coats of flat black exhaust manifold paint which also covered the exposed ends of the factory tips. Looks much better now. Initially I wasn't sure that I would like the angled tips but after installation I am pleased.
Here are a couple of pics
