Very nice looking finish, and the pic from above is an unusual but nice addition. It's good how the aerial's reflection is seen in the roof. :)
I have to admit to never understanding the fashion for treating exhaust tips to a burnished effect. As the very coldest part of the exhaust system it seems odd to me to give the tips a burnt look which occurs at the engine end of the exhaust.
Each to their own though and it's not my car :)

I travelled a long way to get the exhaust done. And that's all they had apart from small end so went with that. Not a fan of them and last week ish I've been thinking of changing them . Think u have just pushed me over the edge now

I didn't mean to offend.
It's that I see cars as bit of engineering. Your motor is a diesel and the exhaust tips wouldn't get hot enough to burnish up. If they did you would have a lot to worry about :)

My mk3 is the same colour as yours and when I clean it I clean the exhaust tips inside and out. It seems a shame to me to get your car looking really nice and clean and then have dirty looking tips...........it's like you missed a bit :)

It's weird but in a rat look car they would look ok IMHO even though I'd still know they would have pretend burnt areas. I was looking at a Saxon the other day. It had the front bumper 'repaired' with grip ties through holes even though it hadn't been damaged and the front doors were all dented in (done very carefully to avoid the crash reinforcing bars inside). To me it is a strange fashion but I can still appreciate the work the owner had done on the car.
It's only my opinion but burnt exhaust tips on a car with a very cool running, low revving engine seems out of place :)

As an aside, it's nice to see another diesel mk3 with twin exit exhausts. It transforms the rear end IMHO.

Yeah the car is really nice and with the clean chrome all over the car it would suit chrome tips more I think, but it is a matter of taste. Saying that though that style would go more with my car due to dechrone and my cars colour so I might consider it for mine lol

Just a pity the diesel exhaust doesn't fit the petrol

Because it's done with heat to get that affect I doubt it, ether new back boxes or chrome tip covers would be your only options

When I looked at exhaust there was a selection of tips to choose from. Even if the tips are welded on its still easy to swap them.

I have ones that are OEM looking but just a bit larger in diameter.

That's made a big difference.

I have a JP exhaust and my tips have a rolled rear edge that is a slash fit like the OEM tip.
What I like about mine is that the tips are fitted so the longest part of the slash is at the 2 o'clock position on the left tip and the 10 o'clock position on the right tip. That means the tips match the shape of the bumper better than just having the longest section at the 12 o'clock position (I hope that made at least some sense lol).
I polish my tips with auto Glym metal polish.
