I had a couple of these stainless steel tips sitting around at my shop for almost 5 years and finally found some use for them. They fit the Pilot perfectly. Had a muffler shop cut the stock tips where it bent downwards and welded these tips on. Cost me $60 and it took him about 45 minutes. When you stand directly over the bumper, the tips are about 1" under the bumper so they do not stick out. Didn't get a chance to spray paint the welding area with high temp black paint yet. What do you guys think?

Those look really nice. I'll have to check to see if Midas can replicate this.

BTW, noticed your license plate frame - San Leandro Honda?

That's where I bought my Pilot.

Here are a few photos of my SS tips. They're made by "Pilot Motorsports" believe it or not. It's even embossed on the tips. They where $18 ea. at a local department store.

I just picked up a set of tips from the local Acura dealer. I asked the accessory guy and he had a whole drawer full from MDX's that had the gold tips put on. I picked them up for free as the guy said he would just throw them out. Came off a 2003 MDX. Moral of the story is, stop in your local Acura dealer and ask. It never hurts! Will post picks later...

What about Tim?

Tim, does your service department have any of these lying around from Acura owners going with the "gold trim" look?

I stopped by Pohanka Acura in Chantilly, VA today and asked about leftover chrome tips. The parts guy told me they don't do that many gold tips, and they throw the chrome ones away. He didn't have any, new or used, in stock, but could order them at $58 each. No thanks.:(

Do you have pictures of the MDX tips on your Pilot? Sounds like the "price is right"!!
