In 2006 the first Range Rover Sport made its debut and this was at a time when the demand for SUVs was constantly growing. That first model had the same chassis as Discovery but with a different body. This model lasted until 2009 when the second iteration of the Sport was introduced which lasted until 2013. This was a performance oriented upgrade that also included a discreet face lift. The 2014 Range Rover Sport had up to 75% of its parts changed and it also had a bold and progressive exterior. The model had a more angled windscreen and a sloping roofline.

And although exhaust tips don't “do” anything in particular when it comes to your vehicle's horsepower and torque, they are added as the cherry on top of your cake (as a garnishment), as well as for improving the sound that your car makes. As with all exhaust parts, tips also come in a variety of styles each having its own unique sound. If you are not sure what type of tip will be the best fit for your vehicle, here's a short explanation of the different types. angle exhaust tip
