A favor, please

As I was backing into a parking space, I hit the concrete stop pretty hard with my muffler and I think I might have bent the exhaust tip down.

Can someone post a picture of their single, oval exhaust tip from a few feet back from the car so that I can see whether mine is bent?

Thanks.

Man, that was fast! Thanks all.

Looks like I bent it down, damn.

So, my first inclination is to just put a jack under the tip and let gravity do its magic. I figure 2-3cm is all I need.

Any better ideas?

Your options, as I see them:

1. Ignore the damage, as long as it doesn't affect the operation of the car.

2. If not 1, then try the jack. If the muffler is unusable already, what do you have to lose?

3. Take it to a muffler shop and have them weld up the hole you tore in step 2.

4. What the hell -- this is your excuse to pull it off and replace with a Borla or Fabspeed.
