I can see from tips referred to that the edges are beveled but very slight difference compared to stock. Not enough for me to justify buying it or having it over stock. I'd rather spend the money on something else that is useful.I don't really see a difference between these and the stock exhaust pipes.
You're right - all NAR cars get these as original equipment - the RoW gets just plain pipes ... with these as an option.I think those tailpipes are the standard ones fitted currently, on the earlier Q3 it had just steel pipes and you could order those stainless tips as an accessory, so unless the U.S. version only comes with steel pipes I do not think there is any difference at all
From about mid to late 2014 all came with SS tailpipes, UK market certainly.You're right - all NAR cars get these as original equipment - the RoW gets just plain pipes ... with these as an option.
it's a nice little change that some really like, cheaper mod than many others you can do.When it comes to tail pipes I just don't think that modding them usually makes that big a difference to the overall look of the car. I could be proven wrong, but from what I have seen so far...
