As you can see, the top of the CP black chrome tips stick out a little more than the chrome ones. What do you think of the look?

I like chrome with LBB but all the chrome tips on one year old cars seem to be dirty on the right pair (so dirty that the dealers seem to struggle to clean them before taking photos). Also I'm not sure about having chrome with a black diffuser with LBB. that's three colours going on. Opinions?

I can’t help but think the tips are a bit small dimater wise?

I quite like the BMS billet type tips but they are only for the M3/4 by the looks of it

The OEM chrome and OEM CP are both exactly the same diameter, 80mm, but when you see them in the metal the CPs have more presence, because all but the bottom end stick out more and they are nicely angled. Also, they don't instantly show black staining like the chrome ones so they tend to look smarter.

Quite hard to show them properly in photos as cameras aren't as good at picking out dark objects, but you see them well with the naked eye.

Anyone come across other alternatives?

I like these from burger tuning but says they’re not suitable for the F87 http://www.burgertuning.com/exhaust_...M3_M4_BMW.html
