3.5" tip option ?

I like how my stock and PM-FL axleback tips are slightly staggered and slash cut. Are the optional solo 3.5" tips staggered and slash cut? Are they double-walled? Thanks!

They are double walled, but they aren't slash cut. Not sure if Steve can do this or not.

Thanks. Are they staggered (outside tip sticks out slightly less than inner tip)? Contours better to the lower rear GXP facia.

The PM-FL ones look very nice. I'm sure you will like the Solo ones also.

Ya know, after looking at my tips today, I think there is a slightly angled slash cut. Majesticix, how about yours?

The PM-FL tips are nice, but I wanted something larger. The good thing about them was that they were a bit longer and stuck out a little further under the diffuser. The ones I have now don't stick out as far and are discoloring the diffuser.

The solo's are staggered and might have a very slight slash cut to them.

Thanks guys! That's the exact info I wanted for confirmation. Now if I could just hear it in person maybe I'd finally pull the trigger!
