Thanks for the specifics! I went right out to the closest Advance Auto and found only 1 tip, but got the 2nd tip today near work. These exhaust tips and a simple chrome license bracket really give a finished, but subtle and understated, look that I wanted for the Accord's rear.

The tips are a good fit and perfect length. I slid the clamp on as far as possible so the tips are maybe an inch longer than the stock pipe and sit nicely just below the contour of the bumper. Tightening, then loosening, helped get the clamp farther onto the pipe before final tightening.

Advance should be selling a ton of these things to Accord owners.

n1 - glad I could help! Got pics?

Here's another tip. The screws on the clamps and the tip itself are not SS and will start to rust. I replaced all mine with SS M5x0.8 at 13mm (1/2") long from the Home Depot. They were $0.37 for a 2-pack or $1.48 total for both tips.

PepBoy stocks the same exhaust tip as AdvanceAuto. The price difference is inexplicable:

PepBoy $13.99
Advance $8.48

Again, kudos to R2 for the tip ( pun intended) on Advance Auto and the good follow up tip (sorry) on SS screws.

I tried the Auto Advance exhaust tips twice for my Civic Wagon. I went thru two sets of them. The first set (dual exhaust tips) was put on in November and thoroughly rusted out by March. I put a second set on in March and they were gone by the fall. I bit the bullet aned paid $25 a piece for the Honda OEM and kicked myself for not jsut ndoing this to begin with. They've already out lasted the last two sets with still not a spot of rust on them, but they're designed much better. They fit and center perfectly with the spacers that are built in. One thing I did change were the set screws like one person mentioned...I picked up a set of stainless steelies and slathered everything in anti-sieze

The OEM tips I got for my Prelude 3 years ago are still in perfect shape, too.

Remember that some SS will rust such as 301SS. You have to have 304 or maybe 303 SS before it won't rust.

Went looking for the SS bolts, but the folks at Home Depot here couldn't find them. They suggested a specialty house which I'll follow up on because the bolts have started to rust already.

You MAY find some at a marine store.... I think most "rust proof" would be zinc, wouldn't they? I believe that's what we have to use for the pool stuff....

Thanks for the thought. While zinc is available, I believe that it is a coating and may not be entirely rust proof. Zinc may not even be available on fine thread machine bolts??? Regardless a marine store is a good idea b/c they have a lot of stainless hardware as well as zinc. Thanks!

You're right.... I was wrong about zinc... it's used for some things as a sacrifice metal.... but a marine store still may have SS for you!

n1 - The Home Depot I went to had them in the "specialty hardware" sections. They had a few drawers marked "Stainless Steel" and the screws were in those drawers, 2 per bag. If I remember correctly, the drawers for the SS screws/nuts/etc. were blue. I had no luck at Lowe's and was going to try Sears Hardware if I struck out at HD. Good luck!

I'm looking at getting a set of aftermarket tips for my black V6 sedan, but I haven't been able to track down those 3A Racing that Rouge Two mentioned here in Canada. However I was able to find some tips by at Canadian Tire. They had two stainless steel bolt on tips for $16.99CDN which were both very similar except one was round and the other was oval (part #7000 and #7001)

I was having trouble picturing them on my car and wanted to get some opinions on weather round or oval exhaust tips look better. I'm leaning towards the oval tips.

Ignore my last post. I found out Canadian Tire can special order the 3 A Racing tips that were mentioned earlier in the thread. They come out to $10.15 plus tax. They are usually shipped within 3 or 4 business days. They can also be ordered online from (and I would bet for those in the USA).

Funny. The tips used to be standard on 5th gen accords and older. Both of my Accords have them the 89' and the 96'! Can you say 'Cost Cutting'
