Can somebody suggest a decent exhaust trim for the early derv cars?

I don't want to spend money on a backbox but do want something that looks original.
The problem is the pipe arrives at the bumper at at obscure angle and then has the vaccuum cleaner handle end that droops down.

Any pics of possible solutions greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Ian

You may have to cut off the end of your exhaust to get a trim on there, I can't recall if you have a DPF as usually it's the DPF cars that have a "droopy" exhaust pipe exit :confused

it's t'other way round.

Cars with DPF's emmit less soot so don't need down facing exhausts.

I checked with BMW UK about mine.

i had a 75mm round alloy end which looked odd. I have trimmed the angle off and re-attached the trim nice and neat.

Looks ok. Not quite as nice as the later black oval ones but not bad for £10.

I'll try and take pic.
