The Rav 4 Accessory Thread

Section for general chatting about your RAV4 or other Rides ... What you do with it, how to use it, where you been in it, or not been in it, we don't mind... It's a free world!
Oh, If you want to get all technical, the Technical Questions and Info could be the place to go.

this comment is kind of a reply to this one and the twin exhaust thread ....

The only downside of the Cobra system that was fitted to Local Heros car was even though it was fully stainless steel, only the exhaust tips were the really shiny stuff. the pipework from about 4" back to the backbox was a bit dull and found that slightly strange.
Now having said that, it still looked great and a lot better then the standard exhaust that was removed :s_yes

A nice shiny end is always a desirable thing to have :s_blush
