Still don't like the exhaust pipes. It looks silly. Like something that should be on a 1998 Civic and sound like a pissed off weed-eater.

Now that I think about it, 442's had Trumpet Tips too.

Here's another thing I noticed. The panel in the rear does not exist on my Overland. Looks like it's there to clean up some of the airflow underneath, probably for fuel economy.

Now, I know the camber is a great assist in handling, but won't that also greatly affect tread wear or is there something I'm not thinking about?

Most likely wear of the insides will occur, unless driven spiritedly in twisties or a track......

Otherwise the outside outside of your tires will have "chicken strips"! :D

It's not an issue if you drive it the way it was intended. This ain't no grocery getter :cool:

WOW I am upset they didn't implement the painted exhaust pipes. It is the thing I hate most on my WKII. Why do through the trouble to have black chrome tips with stainless steel pipes hanging underneath. I guess this will be the first thing I paint, lol
