Default Who STEALS exhaust tips?

Just had my OEM exhaust tips stolen off of my 2007. Is this even a thing? Where would one even replace these without trying to order from honda, any ideas?


thanks!

I feel your pain. Got my stock ehaust tips stolen a couple of years ago at the prune yard in Campbell. That’s why I invested in an aftermarket exhaust. Sorry to hear about your luck.

That's ridiculous. I would never imagine of all things. What's next, the numbers off your mailbox?

Ugh, i'd trade my mailbox numbers for the exhaust tips.


Anyone with a junkyard contact or s2k fanatic with a few salvaged cars for parts?

Somebody stole a wheel centre cap and a front mudflap off my 02 Tacoma when it was parked at a dealership overnight. I've got some extra caps, but a front mudflap is like $125.00. Guess that's why they didn't want to buy one.):

Damn was it just 1 flap?

I ****ing hate criminals, i had my OEM seats jacked a few years ago as well. Just can't have nice things. I would think with all the baller cars around me they'd leave my 10yr old honda alone.

This happened to me too, they stole both my exhaust tips and center caps a few years ago. I noticed someone in Milpitas selling "used" center caps and exhaust tips on ebay so I ordered a set and the center caps were obviously stolen. They had little screw driver dents on them like they were forced out while the wheels were on the car. The seller was wheelcapaccessories when I accused him of stealing them he protested but refunded my purchase without asking for them back. I filed a police report but they never followed up with me.

Yeah, but old ass Honda (cars are cheap!), as well as everything 90s related (clothing, music) is in again.
