When fitting v10 style exhaust tips to my new aftermarket exhaust, are they a proper fit and finish with the v8 rear bumper or would that also have to be changed to a v10 bumper?

see this listing... it doesnt mention if the exhaust holes in the bumper are the same size and shape for both v8 and v10 tips

They will fit but the shape is different in the bumper from V8 to V10. I've never done it but others have.

I looked at this early on & the hole in the bumpers is a fairly different shape that maybe others won't notice but you will! You end up with 'square' corners of the hole that the oval tips do not fit.

I didn't want that & preferred the big single circular pipe anyway so just changed the bumper & the tips from

Apart from the literally hundreds of screws, nuts & bolts to remove & a bit of tweaking it was a very straightforward swap & does IMHO update the rear no end.

I am thinking about doing this too, but with the black oval tips. I think the picture the op has is already the conversion. That is a v8 bumper with 4 fins where as the v10 has 2 fins.
